This project requires a very quick turnaround. I need this done by Friday night.
I need a 1 page personal statement which addresses the following:
1. My interest in joining company X.
2. Ways in which I have promoted and will continue to promote diversity in the legal community.
3. Demonstrate that I will contribute meaningfully, as a result of background, personal attributes or characteristics, to the diversity goals of the company.
I can give the following background information\ramblings which you can work with.
I am a first generation Muslim Iranian-American. My father came to the USA alone 30 years ago with $200. He has since realized the american dream and was able to provide a middle class upbringing through years of hard work. I grew up in a Farsi speaking household. My experience growing up was not typical because of my dual cultural heritage. I have been fortunate to celebrate different holidays, enjoy different foods, learn a different language, and travel to Iran to familiarize myself with the customs and traditions of the Iranian people.
There are few employees with my cultural background currently working at the company. My experience in working with others has always been that a rich and diverse team generates the strongest ideas. I strongly believe that a culture which promotes inclusion and diversity creates better and stronger leaders. I see the efforts being made by company X to promote diversity by providing mentoring programs for diverse members and founding a diversity and inclusion subcommittee. I believe that my inclusion to the company will promote these efforts because my unique upbringing will advance a workplace culture that promotes different viewpoints.
