Affinity groups are an integral part of creating an inclusive work environment. These forums offer individuals with similar backgrounds and experiences an opportunity to socialize and share ideas and interests outside their daily practice groups.
MoFo has 38 affinity groups, 18 of which provide a support network for our women lawyers and working parents.
On an individual level, affinity group members benefit from professional and personal development opportunities that emerge from within the group, including guest speakers, team building activities, and social outings.
On the firm level, MoFo benefits from the ideas generated by the affinity groups for promoting even greater diversity and inclusion within the firm, such as the introduction of women mentoring circles in each of our U.S. offices.
Lawyers and staff also benefit from the programming developed by affinity groups, such as recent Women’s History Month celebrations that featured presentations from Bronx District Attorney Darcel D. Clark and Eleanor Clift, Washington correspondent for the Daily Beast.
