As we begin our celebration of Pride Month, MoFo honors the many contributions made by members of the LGBTQ+ community and invites you to learn more about LGBTQ+ activism with respect to civil rights, mental health, education, and the arts.
MoFo continually strives to provide a work environment where all employees feel respected, valued, and part of a vibrant community where everyone can bring their whole selves to work, openly and proudly.
We will celebrate Pride Month on our MoFo+ blog and in our social media posts, with profiles highlighting our global LGBTQ+ Affinity Network Liaisons (ANLs), and longstanding leaders at MoFo: Finance senior of counsel and Europe ANL Brian Bates; Head Singapore Litigation partner and Asia ANL Daniel Levison; Capital Markets and Public Company Advisory & Governance partner and U.S. ANL John Owen; and Commercial Litigation and Trial partner and Asia ANL Chen Zhu.
The LGBTQ+ Affinity Network, in collaboration with the D+I Team, is pleased to present special events during the month of June.
On Friday, June 23, 2023, we are hosting a paint and sip event for the members of the LGBTQ+ Affinity Network. The LGBTQ+ Affinity Network actively supports the recruitment, engagement, retention, development, and advancement of our LGBTQ+ attorneys/employees across the firm.
In honor of Pride Month, on Tuesday, June 20, we are hosting a conversation with Andrew Solomon, a writer and lecturer on politics, culture, and psychology; winner of the National Book Award; and an activist in LGBTQ rights, mental health, and the arts. New York partner, Katherine Erbeznik will moderate the discussion. To be added to our mailing list, please complete this form.
In honor of this month and the LGBTQ+ community, the Morrison & Foerster Foundation will donate over $20,000 across a variety of nonprofits including The Trevor Project, the Transgender Legal Defense & Education Fund, and the New Conservatory Theatre Center in San Francisco.
MoFo is proud to be a standard-bearer for LGBTQ+ equality in the legal profession for more than 30 years and to have elected the legal industry’s first openly gay chair in 2001. We hope to continue to be a leader in and champion for LGBTQ+ inclusion and invite you to join in celebrating Pride during the month of June.
