Diversity in all its forms makes Blakes and the legal profession stronger.
EastAsian@Blakes is a network of lawyers and students of East Asian heritage and their allies. EastAsian@Blakes is dedicated to promoting recruitment, retention, mentorship, professional development and advancement of top legal talent of East Asian heritage. The group regularly meets to exchange ideas, share information, build relationships and address issues of importance to Asian communities and maintains connections to our clients, non-profits, pro-bono organizations and alumni network which serve or have ties to East Asian communities.
The group works to ensure that lawyers have what they need to grow, attain partnership and occupy leadership roles at Blakes and in the wider legal profession. For EastAsian@Blakes, this effort starts with cultivating belonging — whether through mentorship, by offering a forum to discuss challenges or by promoting systemic change.
