Commitment to Diversity

Ropes & Gray strives to provide unmatched service to its clients by attracting the most talented and motivated individuals and adhering to the highest standards and ethics. Welcoming and appreciating diversity in all aspects of the firm's operations is fundamental to our core values of excellence, fairness, and integrity.

Ropes & Gray has long been committed to the recruitment, retention, and advancement of people of diverse backgrounds at all levels of the firm. As a result of this commitment, Ropes & Gray is today a place where individuals with diverse backgrounds and life experiences work together in a spirit of openness and collaboration.  At Ropes & Gray we see our individual differences as an asset that not only enhances the quality of life for each of us but also strengthens what we can accomplish as a firm.

We are proud of the diversity we have achieved at Ropes & Gray and remain committed to fostering a work environment in which all individuals can thrive and are motivated to do their best, strengthened by their different backgrounds, perspectives and life experiences.  The firm's continuing effort to that end is led by the Diversity Committee, whose membership includes both lawyers and staff, and whose mandate is to provide guidance and recommendations to the firm on policies and programs designed to retain and enhance the firm's diverse workforce.
