Recognizing the particular challenges women face in legal careers, in 2008 the firm launched a formal program, Women At KDW, to provide networking, mentoring and learning opportunities for women associates. Our Women Partners Group is equally active, meeting regularly to network, mentor women associates, cross-market, and share business development strategies.
The Kelley Drye LGBTQ Network is an affinity group of friends, allies and members of the LGBTQ community. Open to everyone, the group reflects the firm’s commitment to promoting diversity and inclusion and to increasing understanding of, and involvement in, the unique issues facing the LGBTQ community.
Kelley Drye’s Diverse Associate Network serves as a forum for racial and/or ethnic minority associates from historically underrepresented groups to promote their careers and professional development by building community, sharing and transferring knowledge, leveraging collective resources, and creating a safe space, empowering participants to achieve career success.
Kelley Drye is pleased to offer a Diversity Scholarship to an outstanding second-year law student. The scholarship recipient(s) will work in our New York office. Applications for the 2020 Diversity Scholarship are now open. The application period will close on December 1, 2020.
