Diversity + Inclusion
Diverse talents, people, ideas and perspectives are necessary to confront today’s challenges in the workplace.
Barton Gilman is dedicated to creating an environment of inclusion and diversity. We believe diversity is a core cultural value, and we are committed to the recruitment and retention of diverse talent to support our firm’s growth and to understand the needs of our clients, service providers and employees.
By hiring people across the full spectrum of diversity – which may include, but is not limited to, gender, age, race, ethnicity, national origin, sexual orientation, gender identity, religion, culture, socioeconomic status and physical abilities – we believe we can better serve the needs and wishes of our clients, employees and communities.
Our Diversity Committee
Barton Gilman’s diversity committee works with the hiring committee, with members participating in diversity events at local, state and national levels. These teams work together to formulate and adopt processes that positively impact our firm’s efforts to recruit, retain, promote and mentor a highly-talented and diverse workforce, as well as to ensure that work is allocated fairly.
We are deeply passionate and committed to always improving our workforce diversity. Currently, over forty percent of the firm’s lawyers are diverse, and virtually the entire administration and staff of the firm are diverse. Additionally, we are proud that Barton Gilman was one of the first firms in Boston to have a female managing partner.
Barton Gilman strives to create a welcoming and collaborative atmosphere to practice law or work in the legal profession.
