'A Conversation with the It Gets Better Project'



Mayer Brown is committed to creating a diverse and inclusive workplace that offers everyone the opportunity and support to succeed. Even though the present environment may keep us physically apart, we have planned a series of events so that we can still come together and celebrate Pride Month this June.

Please join Laureen Seeger, Chief Legal Officer of American Express Company and Paul Theiss, Chairman of Mayer Brown for the fourth of five events in Mayer Brown’s Virtual Pride Parade. The ‘It Gets Better Project’ will lead a discussion on the experiences of LGBTQ youth, the impact of COVID-19, and the importance of continued advocacy during this challenging time.

Following the event, we will pair interested lawyers at your organization with Mayer Brown lawyers in the same region on a pro bono project supporting LGBTQ youth.

All who are interested are invited to attend.

Our ‘Virtual Pride Parade’ consists of weekly events - stops on our parade route - which explore how LGBTQ professionals navigate the legal profession; review legal issues and cases impacting the LGBTQ community; and provide opportunities to collaborate with clients in supporting LGBTQ youth and professionals.
