Movies can be more than just spandex-clad superheroes saving the world from imminent destruction. They can also be a major method of cultural expression that can both entertain and educate viewers on the worldview of the filmmaker and characters.

Our goal is to create and maintain an environment that welcomes and fosters mutual respect for different perspectives, backgrounds and life experiences regardless of gender, race, creed, color, national origin, religion, sexual orientation, age or disability. We are committed to ensuring that professional growth and advancement are based on capability and performance and recognize that a diverse workforce enriches our experiences and lends to our success.

MBLB’s Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Committee members include Members Alan Brackett, Mike Parks, Dan Sullivan and Simone Yoder, Associate Tyler Loga and Human Resources Director, Linda Castanza.
Among the initiatives the DE&I Committee has launched is the Affinity newsletter, which allows diverse voices and points of view to be shared, both within our firm and externally. The newsletter is intended to educate, particularly on historical diversity issues and their impact on or by the law. While these articles provide valuable perspective, they are not intended to espouse a position by the firm.
