Belong @ MGC: Our Differences Make us Stronger

The goal of Belong @ MGC is to foster a firm culture where talented individuals from all backgrounds and experiences are recruited, empowered, included, respected and rewarded. At MGC, we embrace diversity and inclusion, recognizing that we are a better organization with people from different races, religions, backgrounds and walks of life. We bring these qualities to our relationships with clients and to the communities where we live and work.

Diversity, Equity and Inclusion has always been important to our identity and culture, and we are always seeking to improve on attracting diverse candidates across all positions in our firm. As part of our commitment, the Firm introduced the MGC Diversity Scholarship in 2021 to provide diverse law students with access to opportunities that will aid in their development as legal professionals.
