Background - Diversity 2017

Affinity Groups

Crowell & Moring has four diverse lawyer affinity groups and three additional resource networks that promote inclusion, community-building, and opportunity within the firm. These include our African American, balanced (or reduced) hours, LGBTQ+, Asian American and Pacific Islander, and Hispanic or Latino lawyers, as well as our firm’s Caregiver Network (open to lawyers and professional staff) and Women’s Leadership Initiative. The groups are led by some staff and all levels of lawyers from partner to associate and meet regularly, each setting its own agenda tailored to the particular needs of its members. Topics that the groups address include business development, industry trends, lawyer integration, and networking/client development opportunities. These groups provide a safe place for our attorneys to network, share resources, and support each other; all very necessary aspects of the law firm experience.
