"Having an AOC Affinity Group at Stroock has greatly enhanced informal mentor-to-peer relationships that are so important in assisting members with their career paths. Being able to discuss issues affecting attorneys of color specifically has provided us with an opportunity to highlight and inform about those issues in our firm and the legal industry more generally."
"This year, the Health and Wellness Group was proud to offer a number of unique and well-attended programs to support the well-being of Stroock’s employees. We look forward to the continued focus in the new year on sustaining a healthy mind and body for us all."
"SSLGBT has continued to go from success to success in 2019. We have strengthened alliances, increased membership and continued to spread awareness around issues of diversity and inclusion."
"SWAG held some amazing events this year that have facilitated continued successful networking and educational opportunities. The retention and promotion of female lawyers remains an important industry-wide issue and SWAG is an excellent forum not only to discuss these ongoing challenges but also to celebrate the success of our female colleagues [peers and clients]."
"The LA Women’s Group continues to provide an intimate mentoring space and important networking opportunities for the office’s women attorneys. We’ve enjoyed learning from the work and experience of our group’s more senior members and discussing our ideas regarding the future of women in law. We hope to continue to foster career development and understanding among the broader office and the community at large of issues affecting women and underrepresented groups in the legal community and business world."
"Our Working Families Affinity Group is here to provide additional support to those of us with family responsibilities outside the office. For both staff and attorneys, we’ve been able to share challenges and strategies (and some funny anecdotes). It’s great to be able to have this resource here at Stroock, and we look forward to continuing to support each other."
