COLUMBIA, SC – McAngus Goudelock & Courie (MGC), a regional insurance defense firm, was named a 2021 Diversity and Inclusion Honoree by North Carolina Lawyers Weekly and South Carolina Lawyers Weekly. This award represents the firm’s commitment to building a diverse and inclusive workplace; from their Belong @ MGC and WIN @ MGC committees which strategically plan and implement their DEI objectives, to the training and educational opportunities provided to their staff.
“We are very appreciative and proud of this honor,” says MGC managing member Jay Courie. “We are fully committed to diversity, inclusion and equality at MGC. We know that having our firm reflect society and our local communities creates a better internal culture as well as an opportunity to provide greater service and representation to our clients.”
In the spring of 2019, the firm formed two distinct initiatives dedicated to ensuring their diversity, equity and inclusion efforts were at the forefront: Belong @ MGC and WIN @ MGC. Belong @ MGC was founded with the goal of fostering a firm culture where talented individuals from all backgrounds and experiences are recruited, empowered, included, respected and rewarded. The Women’s Initiative (WIN @ MGC) is the firm’s commitment to recruit, retain and advance women in the legal industry, as well as to provide a platform for engagement, development and leadership opportunities for women at MGC.
“MGC is very excited to be chosen as a Diversity and Inclusion Honoree,” says Amy Jenkins, attorney and chair of Belong @ MGC. “This commitment will remain a priority for us and emanates from our highest levels in the firm. We are grateful that our efforts have been recognized.”
