Leadership

The Diversity Council promotes and coordinates all programs relating to diversity in the firm. It is made up of a diverse group of Crowell & Moring lawyers and senior staff members from across the firm’s offices. To further facilitate community building, the Council sponsors firm-wide affinity groups for Latino/Hispanic attorneys, Black/African-American attorneys, Asian Pacific-American attorneys, and LGBT attorneys and staff members. On a community level we support, and our attorneys are leaders in, national affinity bars such as Hispanic National Bar Association, North American South Asian Bar Association, National Asian Pacific American Bar Association, the National Bar Association and National Association of Women Lawyers and their local and law school affiliates, and organizations like LCLD, the MCCA, and NAWL. On an individual level, we offer our attorneys benefits such as domestic partnership benefits, a day-care center with full and backup day care just steps from our DC office, and adoption leave benefits, among others.
