Diversity, Equity & Inclusion

Creating a more inclusive Boston legal community

People at a BBA event.

At the heart of the profession are the people that we serve. We believe in fostering a diverse legal community representative of our city and our clients.

We work in collaboration with our Affinity Bar partners in order to find ways to drive change, break down barriers, confront inequities and recognize those that have made strides in advancing diversity and inclusion and strengthening our profession.

A DEI event.

Affinity Bar Partnerships

We recognize that a diverse and inclusive legal profession is a strong one. That’s why we partner with seven local bar associations on programs and events, and support their work by providing them with meeting rooms, offices and other resources.
