Bringing Together Diverse Backgrounds
for Better Solutions

Inclusion, equity, and diversity are a fundamental part of who we are – and a core principle we live by every day. From our very first days as a law firm, we’ve believed that a culture that prioritizes inclusivity leads to better outcomes – for both us and our clients. And it’s why we continue to instill an atmosphere of collaboration in everything we do.

Our sponsorship and mentoring initiatives, like the Career Advocacy Program and SOAR Program, are designed to encourage the professional development and career growth of our attorneys. We also support and empower them through affinity and employee resource groups as well as internal initiatives that we have developed.

Our diversity initiatives have won multiple awards from a wide range of industry and media organizations, as well as clients like Allstate, Nationwide, The Coca-Cola Company, and many more. But beyond receiving recognition, our inclusion efforts have also strengthened our firm. Because with a wider range of perspectives and experiences, our team can be stronger, smarter and deliver better solutions for your business.

“Our many diversity, equity and inclusion initiatives ensure that Littler attorneys have access to our firm’s top leadership – encouraging individual career growth and nurturing talent that makes our firm stronger.”
– Eddie Chyun and Mark T. Phillis, Inclusion, Equity & Diversity Council co-chairs

Littler’s commitment to equality is unwavering. The firm has joined with organizations, such as Out Leadership and the Human Rights Campaign to ensure equal treatment of members of the LGBTQIA+ community and continued its support of the American Bar Association’s Resolution 113, which asks law firms to complete its Model Diversity Survey to help law firms and clients analyze the role of minorities, women, LGBTQIA+ and attorneys with disabilities in law firms and working on client matters.

Additionally, Littler and its attorneys are involved in and support numerous diverse organizations, including:

  • Black Men Lawyers' Association
  • Black Women Lawyers Association
  • California Minority Counsel Program
  • Charting Your Own Course Conference
  • Corporate Counsel Women of Color
  • Diversity Lab
  • Hispanic National Bar Association
  • Leadership Council on Legal Diversity
  • Minority Corporate Counsel Association
  • National Asian Pacific American Bar Association
  • National Association of Muslim Lawyers
  • National Association of Women Lawyers
  • National Bar Association
  • National Employment Law Council
  • National LGBTQ+ Bar Association
  • South Asian Bar Association of North America

“I am very proud of what we’ve done with regards to inclusion, equity and diversity and inclusion for so many reasons. I joined the firm as an out lesbian. Littler enabled me to give back to my community in a way that I didn’t see possible at other firms. Here, I am not just tolerated, I’m embraced.”
– Lee Schreter, Shareholder

Inclusion, Equity & Diversity

We help organizations develop customized diversity and inclusion initiatives that advance strategic objectives within the legal margins.

Affinity and Employee Resource Groups

Littler’s affinity and employee resource groups offer a forum for attorneys to create affinity-focused programming, giving members a space to have candid conversations about strategies for success, including the enhancement of skill sets and business development planning. Our groups – open to individuals of all backgrounds – develop initiatives and hold in-person and virtual meetings, which allow members to share the unique qualities and values that they bring to the firm.
