As a firm that considers diversity, equity, and inclusion as essential principles, Spencer Fane is committed to fostering belonging and success for people of all identities. Not only will the firm launch an LGBTQ+ connect group for its professionals later this year, but in teaming up with the Chamber, Spencer Fane unites with over 2,000 representatives and 450 organizations to support LGBTQ+ professionals and allies in existing fearlessly and advancing without barriers.
The Chamber aims to “advocate, promote, and facilitate success” for LGBTQ+ and allied businesses. They carry out this mission by providing networking, development, and business opportunities that help create “a more inclusive and vibrant economy in Kansas City and the surrounding region.”
Opportunities offered by the Chamber include programs such as Chamber Speaks, which enhances participants’ public speaking skills, and The Metzler Program for Leadership and Civic Engagement a mentoring initiative. The organization also regularly partners with members to host, co-host, or sponsor community events, and Spencer Fane looks forward to lending firm support.
