DENVER, Oct. 10, 2023 – Moye White is pleased to announce that it has once again achieved an industry-leading certification that underscores the firm’s commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion. The Mansfield Rule Certification, presented by Diversity Lab, follows a rigorous application and review process that aims to encourage law firms across the country to increase the representation of women and diverse professionals in leadership roles in the legal profession.
Through the expansion of their talent pool to encompass women lawyers, LGBTQ+ lawyers, lawyers with disabilities, and individuals from racial/ethnic minority backgrounds, law firms like Moye White have emerged as frontrunners within the legal industry in their pursuit of enhancing DEI initiatives.
“Moye White is honored to have earned the Mansfield Rule Certification, which exemplifies our commitment to fostering diversity and inclusion in the legal field,” said Merc Pittinos, managing partner of Moye White. “We take pride in sculpting a firm that exemplifies the core values of DEI in every facet of our work. We have a long way to go still – both as a firm and in the legal industry – but it is steps like this that make being truly inclusive and creating a place of belonging within reach.”
Introduced in 2020, the midsize Mansfield Rule Certification is a recognition bestowed upon midsize law firms who demonstrate significant, measurable progress in building more diverse leadership teams. This certification assesses whether such firms have taken into consideration a minimum representation of 30% women lawyers, underrepresented racial and ethnic lawyers, LGBTQ+ lawyers, and lawyers with disabilities for vital roles encompassing leadership, governance, equity partner promotions, formal client presentations, lateral lawyer recruitment, and more.
As certified midsize firms strive to meet these benchmarks, they foster transparency in their advancement procedures by setting forth leadership role responsibilities and establishing clear pathways to leadership positions.
