Advancing women

Advancing women

Helping top-performers attain and succeed in leadership roles


One of our goals is to retain and support top-performing women, while helping them succeed in leadership roles.

The Global Women's Initiative aims to help ensure access for women to partnership and leadership roles. This is supported by the grassroots activities of our local Women's Networks—which provide talent management and facilitate women supporting each other.

Raising the next generation of women leaders

Members of our Global Women’s Initiative Committee monitor the progress of our women. We also run a Sponsorship Program for lawyers on potential track for partnership, and a Coaching Program offering associates and counsel the opportunity to receive individual, executive coaching and participate in group-coaching sessions.

We pair lawyers at critical phases of their career with partner sponsors to ensure they receive opportunities and experience so they can advance to positions of leadership within the Firm and the broader legal profession.



Vivian Tsoi
We are made of outstanding women, who not only come from a range of racial and ethnic backgrounds but also women with different care-giving responsibilities, with disabilities, LGBTQ+ women, and more. We want to support all women, and give them ample opportunities to achieve their professional goals. Our Firm will be richer for it, and our clients will benefit from the diverse perspectives and experiences they will each bring to the table.
