Foley Hoag LLP announced that the firm has achieved Mansfield Certification Plus status from Diversity Lab after completing the yearlong Mansfield Rule 5.0 certification program.
The Mansfield Rule Certification program aims to boost the representation of historically underrepresented lawyers in law firm leadership. The Mansfield Rule has become the standard by which law firms track and measure that they have affirmatively considered at least thirty percent women, lawyers from underrepresented racial/ethnic groups, lawyers with disabilities, and LGBTQ+ lawyers for top leadership roles, senior-level lateral hiring, promotions into the equity partnership, and participation in client pitch meetings.
By achieving Mansfield Certification Plus, Foley Hoag has not only considered, but achieved thirty percent representation of underrepresented lawyers in many of the Mansfield Rule’s categories, as well as heightened the transparency of our partner compensation criteria and processes.
Foley Hoag is currently taking part in the sixth cycle of the Mansfield Rule Certification program process - Mansfield Rule Certification 6.0, which runs from July 2022 to July 2023. To learn more about Mansfield 6.0 Certification, click here
