Equity, Inclusion & Diversity
At Brown Rudnick, we are committed to ensuring that each lawyer, paralegal and administrative professional is provided an equal opportunity to succeed based on individual merit.
We are committed to the value of diversity and to ensuring the equitable and inclusive treatment of all members of the Brown Rudnick community. This commitment informs every aspect of our firm’s operations, from recruitment and hiring, to professional development and mentoring, to firm management and leadership.
Our rationale for making this commitment is clear: in addition to being the right thing to do, maintaining an equitable, inclusive and diverse workplace environment is a business imperative. By leveraging the knowledge and experience of talented individuals across cultures, backgrounds, ethnicities, gender identities and sexual orientations, we can provide truly unique solutions to our clients’ global business challenges.
We support this commitment by dedicating significant resources to initiatives and programs that help us recruit, retain and promote high-performing individuals from all walks of life. These efforts are led by our Equity, Inclusion and Diversity Partners, Jane Colston and Chelsea Mullarney, with Director of Equity, Inclusion and Diversity, Renauld G. Clarke, who collectively advise the firm on how best to identify and address implicit biases, increase the representation of women and people from diverse backgrounds at all levels, including the partnership, and create a more inclusive environment for all members of the firm.
