LGBTQ+ Affinity Group

Our affinity groups welcome and encourage participation from lawyers and professional staff

The LGBTQ+ Affinity Group promotes a supportive and inclusive environment to ensure all members of the Cooley family bring their authentic selves to the workplace. It seeks to foster a sense of community for all of its members through regular calls and social events throughout the year and strives to increase visibility and understanding of LGBTQ+ issues across the firm. In addition to organizing internal events in each office, the group works with a number of LGBTQ+ organizations on a pro bono basis, attends LGBTQ+ recruitment and business development events, strengthens allyship engagement and counsels senior management to help ensure all Cooley policies are inclusive.
