Law Firm Diversity

Many law firms have a law firm diversity department and are Mansfield 4.0 Certified working to increase the representation of diverse lawyers in leadership, high visibility opportunities and promotions, and outside counsel representation.

Law firm diversity means an equal opportunity and affirmative action employer does not discriminate based on race (inclusive of traits historically associated with race, including hair texture and protective hairstyles), ethnicity, color, creed, religion, national origin, sex (which includes pregnancy, childbirth, breastfeeding, and related medical conditions), age, marital or partnership status, familial status, sexual orientation, gender identity, gender expression, transgender, physical or mental disability, medical condition, family leave status, citizenship status, immigration status, ancestry, genetic information, military or veteran status, or any other characteristic protected by local, state or federal laws, rules or regulations.

The AM 200 law firms are always working to include a more diverse workforce.
