Affinity Groups

At Bass, Berry & Sims, our affinity groups are directly connected to firm management. Together, we are fostering an inclusive and supportive environment while advancing the firm’s diversity goals.

Affinity group members and allies play a key role in the firm’s strategic plan and overall commitment to diversity and inclusion, and each group is focused on the unique goals of its membership. An Executive Committee member is assigned as a liaison to each group to ensure members’ perspectives are heard and considered at the highest level.

By sharing knowledge and promoting dialogue between the group and non-members, each affinity group actively contributes to building a stronger and more open firm community. Ongoing initiatives involve educational events, networking and social activities, community partnerships and service opportunities, law-school and lateral recruitment efforts, and mentorship programs.
