RMKB's Diversity Mission Statement

At RMKB, we believe in promoting and encouraging diversity.  Cultivating an environment where different backgrounds, beliefs, and perspectives can come together and thrive is vital to the legal profession and integral to our firm’s success.  RMKB values each and every individual contribution to the firm and celebrates everyone’s unique perspective.

In today’s diverse, multicultural society, RMKB recognizes that promoting diversity is a social responsibility. We also understand that embracing diversity creates value for our clients who appreciate and expect their legal team to reflect the diversity of their own organizations and communities.  Well before many law firms began instituting formal “diversity” programs, RMKB implemented internal employment practices demonstrating its commitment to diversity within the firm and within the legal profession.  We strive to mirror the rich diversity of the communities in which we practice and pledge to respect the diversity of our clients and their workforce.

We believe in creating a work environment free of barriers and bias, where individual outlooks and talents are respected and valued.  By promoting and mentoring women, members of the LGBTQ community, people of color, minorities, and those who are disabled, we are able to foster collaboration and innovative thinking that enhances our firm’s culture and the services we provide to our clients.  Our commitment to inclusion informs not only our recruiting and training efforts, but also the organizations to which we belong and sponsor.

RMKB’s commitment to increase awareness of multiculturalism includes not only a dedication of financial resources but also to encourage our attorneys and staff to volunteer time to accomplishing our goal of promoting and encouraging diversity.
