We are thrilled to announce Hord Coplan Macht CEO Lee Coplan has been named as a Leader in Diversity by the Baltimore Business Journal!

Although he is the public face for this award, Lee will be the first to point out that this initiative is a thoroughly collaborative effort. Programs such as the Hord Coplan Macht scholarship at Morgan State University, the increased outreach of the Architect for Day program, and the commitment of firm leadership to make diversity and inclusiveness an important factor in our hiring process have all helped achieve this distinction.

This intentional focus has led to nearly half of the firm’s current team members being women, and more than 20 percent are minorities, far outpacing the national statistics. Since 2018, 67 percent of the firm’s new hires have been women and people of color – this is a remarkable outlier when compared with industry averages.
