Members of the Minority Attorney affinity group help create opportunities for mentorship, skills training, and business development.
Davis Wright Tremaine pioneered a cross-mentoring program with one of our top corporate clients in 2012, which was expanded to include other Seattle law firms. By matching diverse firm associates with in-house counsel mentors, the mentorship program sought to improve retention and enhance client service.
Our Minority Attorney affinity group members work together to create other initiatives partnering with clients to provide leadership, cross-mentoring, and other valuable career development opportunities. One of the group’s goals is to promote an inclusive environment that allows all attorneys to succeed and grow professionally, regardless of their race or cultural or ethnic background.
