Diversity

RMKB's Commitment to Diversity

 

Ropers, Majeski, Kohn & Bentley promotes a diverse, inclusive work environment, understanding that diversity creates a productive workplace, is a social responsibility, and creates value for its clients who appreciate and expect their legal team to reflect the diversity of their own organizations and communities.  Well before many law firms in the Bay Area began instituting formal “diversity” programs, RMKB implemented internal employment practices demonstrating its commitment to diversity within the firm and within the legal profession.

 

Today, RMKB offers a wide range of support –both in volunteer time and financial resources – to help increase an awareness of diversity-related concerns and find ways of accomplishing its diversity-related goals. 

 

 Within The Community

  • Through the firm's connection with the Los Angeles County Bar Association, several attorneys from our Los Angeles office are participating in an ongoing High School Outreach Program as volunteer mentors to Garfield High School students.
  • RMKB was the catalyst for the formation of a formal diversity program in San Mateo County and continues to work closely with the San Mateo County Bar Association to foster and encourage diversity related programs.
  • RMKB is proud to join PG&E, Union Bank of California, Wells Fargo, and others as the first and only law firm sponsor of the Bay Area Gardeners Foundation, a non-profit organization dedicated to providing financial support to economically disadvantaged students attending college.
  • RMKB is working with Sequoia High School in Redwood City in an effort to commit a team of diverse students to compete in the San Mateo County Mock Trial Program, offering to provide attorney coaches and financial assistance.
  • RMKB has been honored to sponsor an annual holiday celebration for the students at St. Elizabeth Seton School in East Palo Alto for almost two decades.  The mission of St. Elizabeth Seton School, a Vincentian Catholic School, is to educate kindergarten through eighth grade students from the multi-cultural and economically diverse populations of East Palo Alto, Palo Alto, and the surrounding communities.

 RMKB proudly supports other diversity related causes: 

  • Bay Area Legal Aid
  • Charles Houston Bar Association
  • Food Bank Society of Los Angeles
  • Bar Association of San Francisco Diversity Program

Our attorneys belong to the following organizations:

  • Asian-American Bar Association of the Great Bay Area
  • Iranian-American Bar
  • Japanese-American Bar
  • Korean-American Bar Association of Northern California
  • Law Society of Hong Kong

     

Within RMKB:

RMKB maintains a formal mentorship program for its associates

RMKB provides funding for and supports attorney participation in local and national organizations seeking to promote and encourage diversity within the legal profession.

RMKB provides flex-time schedules and part time employment for attorneys at both the partner and associate level.
