Vice President and General Counsel, Facebook, Inc.

Colin Stretch joined Facebook in 2010 and became General Counsel in 2013. In 2014, he was named one of America's 50 Outstanding Corporate Counsel by the National Law Journal. Before becoming an LCLD Member, Colin co-hosted a Leadership Lunch with LCLD Member Joe Conroy, CEO of Cooley LLP. 

Colin cares passionately about diversity, and in 2017 announced a diversity mandate for Facebook’s outside counsel: “We want to see them win our cases and create opportunities for women and people of color. Our articulation gives not just permission but a mandate.”

Facebook provides unconscious bias training for employees and hosts a variety of workgroups for female employees. It is also transparent about efforts to improve workplace diversity and inclusion.
