Pepper's Diversity Outreach

Pepper regularly participates in and sponsors external diversity initiatives and bar-related events, such as:

  • Pepper's annual Celebrate Diversity event was held on July 23, 2013. Lawyers, clients, alumni and staff attended Pepper’s annual event. Romulo L. Diaz. Jr., Vice President and General Counsel, PECO Energy Company, was presented with the 2013 Champion of Diversity Award.
  • Pepper also supports diversity goals in pro bono work. For example, beginning in March 2011, Pepper’s Boston office is partnering with the Economic Justice Project, an arm of the Lawyers’ Committee for Civil Rights Under Law of the Boston Bar Association, which combats race and national origin discrimination through litigation, minority community economic development and legal assistance. Several lawyers in our Boston office will be working with EJP to help budding entrepreneurs and others in the Haitian community in Mattapan, MA through workshops, legal clinics and other pro bono representation.
