Diversity, Equity & Inclusion
Our firm's Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Initiative seeks to attract, retain, and champion top-flight legal talent. By doing so, we are able to maintain a culture of equality and support, strengthen the firm and community, and fuel improved performance and results for our clients.
At Murphy & McGonigle, Diversity, Equity & Inclusion starts with the ABCs. "A" stands for "advancement for all" that is based on the mentoring and sponsoring of the next generation of attorneys who will carry the firm’s mantle. "B" stands for "business that is inclusive" and promotes leaders from a wide range of backgrounds at all levels of management. "C" stands for "community outreach" that encourages our attorneys to collaborate on projects that leave a lasting social footprint.

The CBLA is a coordinated effort to strengthen the pipeline of diverse bar association leaders by providing leadership training and professional development programs which will benefit current and future leaders, the bar association community, and the legal profession overall. The CBLA marks the first substantive program resulting from a collaboration of the six sponsoring bar associations and lays the foundation for further collaborative efforts to foster diversity and inclusion in the legal profession.
Companies of the future are expected to have flourishing women’s initiatives with a list of rising and current stars to boot. Why? In the last 40 years or so, academia has been admitting just as many female students as male students annually on average. At some schools, women even outnumber men.
