We Have Always Made Diversity a Priority

Posted on Jun 05, 2023 in Announcements

Our firm has always strived to provide a work environment where diversity is encouraged.  Not only does a diverse culture benefit us as members of society, it also benefits our clients and the entire legal community.  We are proud to announce that our firm has achieved Mansfield Certification following an 18-month diversity audit.  The Mansfield Certification recognizes the structural changes and actions we have taken to diversify leadership in our firm by broadening the slate of talent considered for internal leadership roles and increasing transparency with written and accessible advancement processes and role descriptions. The goal of Mansfield is to increase and sustain diversity in law firm leadership through a science-driven method that embeds accountability, transparency, and knowledge sharing into our talent practices. We know that with diverse leadership comes more inclusive and equitable decisions that reflect the needs of our diverse workforce for the benefit of our talent and clients.   Mansfield aims to increase and sustain diversity in leadership within firms by expanding the pool of women lawyers, LGBTQ+ lawyers, lawyers with disabilities, and underrepresented racial and ethnic lawyers considered for firm governance roles, equity partner promotions, client pitches, Chambers awards, and more.  #Mansfield #MansfieldRule #DiversityLab #MidsizeMansfield
