Commitment to Diversity

We value diversity for the dynamic, vibrant spirit it brings to our organization and lives. We recognize that our own diversity helps us appreciate alternative points of view as we serve an increasingly diverse clientele. Greater than forty percent of our colleagues are women, people of color or openly gay. Diversity is not a long-range goal at Goulston & Storrs; it is our reality.

Women, racial and ethnic minorities, and gay and lesbian lawyers have served on virtually all committees within the firm. Our Diversity Committee meets regularly to address relevant issues regarding the firm’s recruitment, retention, development and advancement of a diverse workforce.

While very proud of our progress in building diversity, we set our sights ever higher. The firm takes many steps to ensure that lawyers from diverse backgrounds receive excellent work, mentoring and training opportunities, and continually seeks to increase diversity awareness in the hiring process. In addition, we maintain an active speakers program to raise consciousness regarding the many ways that diversity enriches us personally and strengthens our organization.

What is it like being a minority woman at Goulston & Storrs? 
"Like everywhere else, it’s difficult to walk around where nobody looks like you. The difference is at Goulston & Storrs the firm cares about increasing diversity."
