PHILADELPHIA – As part of Stradley Ronon’s ongoing commitment to ensure a more diverse, equitable and inclusive workplace, the firm is pleased to announce Associate Evan Poulgrain as chair of the LGBTQ+ Engagement Group (Q&A, Queer & Allies) and Associate Michael Tang as chair of the Asian Pacific American Engagement Group. The firm’s engagement groups were created to bring together attorneys and business professionals to provide an intimate and safe environment for those with a shared heritage and life experiences. 

“Bringing together individuals with similar identities, interests and backgrounds can have a powerful and meaningful impact in the workplace. More importantly, these groups provide those individuals with a strong and visible community,” said Chief Diversity Officer and Counsel Brian P. Seaman. “Both of these groups have been operating and meeting behind the scenes for some time, and we’re thrilled to formally announce Evan and Michael as leaders of these groups.”

The groups meet monthly for social events, meetings and training on issues that are both relevant and informative to the entire Stradley community. The groups are also fundamental to planning the firm’s celebration of Asian American Pacific Islander Month, which takes place in May, and Pride Month, which follows in June.  

A member of the firm’s business department, Poulgrain concentrates his practice on corporate law, advising public and private and private companies in various corporate transactions, including mergers and acquisitions, divestitures, entity formation, and corporate governance issues. While in law school, Poulgrain was president of Drexel Kline School of Law’s OUTlaw Association, which is dedicated to promoting diversity and inclusion of LGBT individuals within the law school and Philadelphia community.

Tang is a member of the firm’s business department and represents public and private companies on business and corporate transactional matters. His practice includes securitization, structured finance and general corporate work. Tang serves on the Board of Directors of the Asian Pacific American Bar Association of Pennsylvania (APABA-PA and served as the Diversity Committee Chair of the Philadelphia Bar Association’s Tax Section. He also serves on the Board of Directors of RSVP, a nonprofit organization dedicated to improving the lives of vulnerable populations in the local greater Philadelphia community.
