The mission of the Boston Lawyers Group (BLG) is to support the efforts of its member organizations to identify, recruit, advance, and retain attorneys of color. Innovation and collaboration are the key elements of BLG’s foundation. BLG members are ultimately responsible for turning their organization's objectives into action. Each member gathers information through the consortium and takes steps independently to achieve the goal of greater diversity in its organization.
Boston, the largest city in the New England region, is a vibrant and lively city with a population of over half-million residents. It is the tenth largest metropolitan area in the U.S. and offers a multi-culturally diverse and modern urban lifestyle. Boston is a city with an immigrant heritage. In recent years, Bostonians have witnessed the arrival of a wave of immigrants from all over the world; including Asia, Latin America and the West Indies. In fact, foreign born residents represent approximately 27% of the city’s total population. This rich diversity is reflected not only in Boston’s neighborhood demographics, but also in the arts, culinary fare, entertainment, and within its professional and social organizations.
The mission and work of The Boston Lawyers Group is as relevant today as it's ever been. Diversity and inclusion are not just a concept, but an important business and moral strategy to ensure that Boston remains a welcoming city for everyone.
