Diversity, Equity, Inclusion and Belonging

The core of our mission at Irwin IP is to create an atmosphere of inclusiveness and belonging.  Providing a team of diverse attorneys and staff to represent and support our clients aligns with our responsibility and promise to practice with excellence, integrity, and success.  We are committed to building relationships with affinity groups and a diverse pipeline of law schools to create a sustainable and robust candidate base.  We hold ourselves to the highest standards of professionalism, fairness, and training in all areas of the diversity, equity, and inclusion space.

Close to half of our employees are first generation professionals.  We know all-too-well the virtues of hard work, determination, and merit, especially when a pre-existing network of individuals cannot hand you opportunities.  Our top priority is to be leaders both in our profession and our community in eliminating the inequities that continue to hold motivated individuals back.  We adhere to a strict anti-harassment policy, harassment prevention plan, and provide training from your very first day of employment.

Our Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Committee meets regularly and keeps abreast of hot topics in firm culture IQ to ensure that we retain the best and the brightest.  Irwin IP strives to provide leadership by holding ourselves accountable, setting our goals publicly, having our fingers on the pulse of human rights issues, and celebrating diverse holidays and historically important occasions in the workplace.  Our team consists of a varied mix of genders, religions, ages, races, veterans, and lgbtq+ members.  Every IIP team members’ voice is heard and considered valuable and irreplaceable.  The thoughts, ideas, and perspectives of every IIP employee are considered at every level and everyone feels free to be who they really are.
