Diversity & Inclusion



Diversity enlivens our workplace. It jostles traditional thinking and brings rich experience to our clients and communities.

Our priority is to attract, retain and promote talented individuals who reflect an array of racial, ethnic, social, economic, religious and personal backgrounds. Nixon Peabody is recognized as a diversity leader by important measures like the Corporate Equality Index. We are incredibly proud of our 100% rating and actively work to keep it.

We’re proud of our progress in building a more diverse and inclusive firm, but we know there's more work to do. Watch what we’ve accomplished so far.

While we are proud of our diversity record, we know our actions going forward are the more important story. Through continuous attention to recruitment, training, mentoring and policies we will achieve our goal of ever greater diversity in the future.
