Two Decades of Championing Diversity and Service in eDiscovery

Jun 11, 2024

Last month, CDS celebrated AAPI Heritage Month by proudly sponsoring the 10th Annual Georgia Asian Pacific American Bar Association (GAPABA) Gala in Atlanta, Georgia. This annual event recognizes the accomplishments of the AAPI legal community and serves as an opportunity to reinforce our dedication to diversity and inclusion. At CDS, diversity is more than a commitment—it’s a pillar of our success.

A Legacy of Commitment and Innovation

Founded in 2003, CDS has remained minority-owned, privately held, and independently operated amidst multiple industry acquisitions and consolidations. By staying true to our mission, we’ve built long-term relationships through flexible, responsive, and personalized service, delivering effective and innovative eDiscovery solutions.

Diverse Perspectives, Unmatched Excellence

A standout feature of our success is our diverse workforce, with nearly 60% of our team members coming from diverse racial backgrounds. Our team includes some of the most experienced technicians, consultants, and project managers in the field, along with over a dozen lawyer-technologists who are individuals of color. “This diverse expertise enables us to craft flexible, innovative solutions truly tailored to your unique eDiscovery needs,” says Emily Glazer Font, CDS’ Director of Business Development.

The Power of Diversity

The business case for diversity is undeniable. Varied representation deepens discussions, improves decision-making, and helps our organization thrive. At CDS, diversity goes beyond numbers; it embodies our belief that inclusive teams drive better outcomes. This richness in diversity naturally reflects the essence of CDS.

Forging Ahead

As we celebrate our 20th anniversary, we proudly acknowledge the diversity that propels CDS to the forefront of the eDiscovery industry. “Our commitment to diversity and excellence is what sets us apart,” says Regina Chepalis, Vice President of Sales at CDS. “We invite you to collaborate with our expert team to craft customized solutions for your next project.”
