MentoringInvesting in the next generation of diverse leaders is a key priority at MoFo.

Our Diversity Mentoring Program supports the development of under-represented minority associates by matching them with a partner who mentors the attorney through their associate years.

The mentoring program was a direct response to associate feedback received during the MoFo Diversity Summit.

The Diversity Strategy Committee (DSC), in consultation with the DSC co-chairs, carefully match associates with partners. Mentors are long-term career coaches, who offer associates insight on a range of topics, including:

  • how to navigate the firm as an associate;
  • tips for success within their practice group;
  • advice on appropriate mix of work assignments within the framework of their practice groups; and
  • advice on finding opportunities for networking and inclusion that will help further the associates’ career advancement at the firm.

In addition, mentees have the opportunity to participate in peer mentoring circles. Designed as safe spaces for associates, the mentoring circles provide an opportunity for associates to discuss any issues they may be experiencing.
