Mission Statement

Maynard Cooper & Gale embraces diversity as a hallmark of the firm and is committed to recruiting, hiring, developing and promoting diverse attorneys. Our firm has recognized that our ability to provide clients with the highest quality of service in the local, national and international marketplace is strengthened by a diverse workforce, among whom differences are accepted and valued.  In furtherance of these diversity goals, and recognizing that successful women lawyers are vital to the business, culture, future and overall success of Maynard Cooper & Gale, the mission of the Women’s Initiative is to attract and retain the best and brightest women lawyers, to foster their professional development, to advocate for their professional opportunities and recognition, and to promote their advancement to leadership positions within the firm, the profession, and the community.

Women’s Initiative Committee

The Women’s Initiatives Committee at Maynard Cooper is led by a group of female shareholders and associates and supported by the Executive Committee and Marketing Department. The Committee meets regularly to assess policies and practices as they relate to recruitment, retention, mentoring and career development of our women lawyers at all levels, to coordinate the firm’s overall women’s initiatives, which views our female-focused efforts as a key strategic priority at the Firm.

Forum of Alabama Businesswomen

The Forum of Alabama Businesswomen (“FAB”) program is a three-part event series held in the spring, summer, and fall.  Each year the program has a theme which provides a forum for businesswomen and female leaders in the community to interact, focused on cultivating relationships amongst businesswomen in the community.
