Statement of Purpose

A consortium of attorneys and staff committed to lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender equality in the workplace, our LGBT ARG provides an open forum for the exchange of ideas, current legal trends, and information on LGBT issues that are then shared internally and externally to promote an inclusive work environment in which respect and tolerance are the pillars of our firm culture.

  • Routinely provides speakers for a variety of management education-focused presentations, including the avoidance of sexual orientation and gender identity harassment and discrimination, diversity initiatives, domestic partner and marriage benefits and emerging same-sex legal developments
