At BoMc, we ask, “how can we do better for everyone on our team?”
This Is Us
A diverse team is more interesting, fun, and enriching. It leads to better idea generation, better solutions, and better outcomes. This is not something where we reach a certain point and rest on our laurels. We continue to learn and grow. We are in this for the long haul.
Community Is Built Into Our DNA
The firm has been transparent in its goal towards being an inclusive workplace and is constantly seeking the advice/guidance of the people who make up the firm.
Miles K. Davis
The firm encourages the open sharing of ideas and uses fairness as the primary decision driver.
The firm has done a wonderful job of allowing us to work remotely and providing plentiful mentorship from other diverse attorneys.

Incorporating DEI into our Everyday Conversation
BoMc’s in-house Inclusivity, Diversity, Equity, and Awareness (IDEA) Committee is open to everyone at the firm. The IDEA Committee regularly puts together outreach and events to shine a light on DEI issues. Its board is made up of staff, attorneys, and partners providing a voice and formal mechanism outside of management to evaluate issues and implement solutions to address DEI concerns at the firm and beyond.

Happy Hour and Community Service (July 28, 2023)
The IDEA Committee sponsored a happy hour and community service event preparing donation packages for Mission D.C. which seeks to provide safe shelter, hot meals, medical care, job training, and compassionate care to transform lives in the Washington D.C., metropolitan area.
Inclusivity in the Workplace
Members of the IDEA Committee led an insightful and engaging presentation and discussion centered around improving inclusivity in the workplace, navigating microaggressions at work, and the importance of diversity. The discussion involved breakout sessions including the opportunity to share your fullest name and "a truth and a lie."
