Asian Pacific Islander Attorney Affinity Group

Our affinity groups welcome and encourage participation from all lawyers and patent personnel

The mission of the Asian Pacific Islander Attorney Affinity Group is to create space for open dialogue to recognize the unique challenges Asian Pacific Islander lawyers face within the legal profession and the broader Asian Pacific Islander communities; to provide a forum for the diverse voices, narratives and experiences of Asian Pacific Islander communities; to celebrate each other’s personal and professional journeys; and to cultivate understanding and mentorship so members feel supported, find strength in their own voices and become a better advocate for themselves and those around them. We are committed to empowering each other, championing broader Asian Pacific Islander leadership within the law and supporting diversity, equity and inclusion across the firm for all diverse groups.
