A&Out: A&Out is a network established by A&O partners, associates, and staff (regardless of their sexual orientation or gender identity) who are committed to building a workplace culture of openness, respect and inclusion around LGBTQ+ matters.

Access Ability: In 2021 we launched our disability network Access Abilty to support colleagues who have a disability, those who have caring responsibilities for people with disabilities and those who are allies. Of this new initiative, Ian Field, Banking partner and DE&I partner for London, said: “The creation of this network is the next step in our inclusion agenda. It is going to be very important in both providing additional support to our colleagues around the globe as well as raising awareness across A&O about disability”.

Asian Affinity Network (AAN): The A&O U.S. Asian Affinity Network is dedicated to highlighting the diversity of cultures to promote inclusivity. AAN focuses on hosting educational and celebratory events and discussions. The Asian Affinity Group is open to anyone interested in discussing, supporting, and promoting conversations and topics relevant to our Asian attorneys.

Black & Latinx Affinity Group (BLAG): The A&O U.S. Black & Latinx Group is committed to cultivating a space that promotes the advancement of our Black and Latinx people, creating an inclusive and open environment through mentoring, networking, and recruitment, and by fostering our strengths through community involvement, pro bono, and advocacy in order to strengthen our staff and lawyers as leaders of the future.

Families@A&O: Families @ A&O seeks to support members of our community in their responsibilities related to caring for family members. The purpose of the group is to provide tools, strategies, resources, and a community network of support to our people striving for work-life-family balance.

Women’s Committee: The A&O Women’s Committee was formed as a platform for women attorneys to discuss and help to address issues affecting women at all stages of their career at A&O.
