Key Diversity & Inclusion Initiatives
Kobre & Kim's global community is strengthened by diversity
initiatives that promote cultural awareness and inclusion.
We pride ourselves in creating a working environment that empowers lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer colleagues to bring their whole selves to work. The firm’s network for LGBTQ colleagues and allies, Pride@K&K, is dedicated to fostering this environment throughout all of Kobre & Kim’s global locations. Pride@K&K strives to recruit top LGBTQ talent, provides a platform for colleagues to connect and share experiences, and organizes social and professional development activities. The group also works with the firm’s pro bono team to partner with organizations assisting LGBTQ individuals in need of legal representation.
Women@K&K is Kobre & Kim’s women’s initiative that focuses on the recruiting, retention and promotion of women throughout the firm. Women@K&K reflects Kobre & Kim’s strong commitment to support and promote women in the legal profession. Almost 65% of all Kobre & Kim employees are members of populations that have been historically underrepresented in the legal industry, including women and people of color. Women@K&K, alongside Kobre & Kim's Diversity@K&K affinity group, strives to create opportunities for these groups to assume leadership and decision-making roles. The leadership team of Women@K&K ensures that the women of Kobre & Kim receive continued support in their career development and can build mentor and peer relationships throughout their time at the firm.
