BR United

In honor of our firm’s history of progressive diversity and inclusion initiatives, Blank Rome launched our BR United affinity group in 2008, which provides a multicultural community for our diverse attorneys and professionals to network and exchange ideas.

Under the umbrella of BR United are our culturally-oriented affinity subgroups—BR Asian, BR Black, BR Latinx, and BR MENA—providing professional development, mentorship, and sponsorship opportunities, as well as connecting with members through shared identities and experiences.

  • BR Asian is a community for colleagues of Asian, Asian American, and Pacific Islander descent to gather, share and address issues and concerns that impact the group, and engage in work to educate and spread awareness about the different cultures and ethnicities of the Asian and Pacific Islander ethnocultural backgrounds. As a Blank Rome community, BR Asian will share related resources, host cultural and networking events to connect colleagues internally and externally, introduce branding opportunities, and foster inclusion that empowers this community to continue strengthening their identities.
  • BR Black is a community for colleagues of the African and Black diaspora to gather, share and address issues and concerns that impact the group, and engage in work to educate and spread awareness about the different cultures and ethnicities of the Black ethnocultural backgrounds. As a Blank Rome community, BR Black will share related resources, host cultural and networking events to connect colleagues internally and externally, introduce branding opportunities, and foster inclusion that empowers this community to continue strengthening their identities.
  • BR Latinx is a community for colleagues of the Hispanic and Latin diaspora to gather, share and address issues and concerns that impact the group, and engage in work to educate and spread awareness about the different cultures and ethnicities of the Hispanic and Latinx ethnocultural backgrounds. As a Blank Rome community, BR Latinx will share related resources, host cultural and networking events to connect colleagues internally and externally, introduce branding opportunities, and foster inclusion that empowers this community to continue strengthening their identities.
  • BR MENA is a community for colleagues representing Iran, Lebanon, Turkey, Iraq, Jordan, Saudi Arabia, Morocco, Palestine, Tunisia, and Syria to gather, share and address issues and concerns that impact the group, and engage in work to educate and spread awareness about the different cultures and ethnicities of the Middle Eastern and North African ethnocultural backgrounds. As a Blank Rome community, BR MENA will share related resources, host cultural and networking events to connect colleagues internally and externally, introduce branding opportunities, and foster inclusion that empowers this community to continue strengthening their identities.
