Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion

Cleary Gottlieb is a vibrant and engaging community, home to an eclectic group of people of various sexual orientations and cultural, educational, religious, and ethnic backgrounds.

Diversity, equity, and inclusion are not mere buzzwords; they’re in our DNA and are absolutely central to our firm’s founding principles and ongoing identity.

Our culture of inclusion is a reflection of our global legal practice. We work daily with clients around the world on matters involving a broad array of legal, business, and social/cultural perspectives. To further ensure we remain an open and innovative workplace, we actively support community, outreach, and training programs focused on issues of diversity, equity, and inclusion.

We believe all Cleary lawyers benefit from interacting with the creativity, talents, and perspectives contributed by people of different backgrounds and experiences, and that our firm-wide efforts to nurture diversity, equity, and inclusion help us more effectively serve an even broader range of clients.

Our Brussels office is also a proud co-founding member of the Legal Diversity & Inclusion Alliance (LDIA), which was launched in January 2019.
