WBK Partners With Diversity Lab in Midsize Mansfield Rule Pilot
As part of our ongoing commitment to diversity and inclusion, WBK is proud to be among the small group of midsize law firms to partner with Diversity Lab in the inaugural pilot of the Midsize Mansfield Rule. This 18-month certification process is designed to boost diversity in leadership for firms with fewer than 100 lawyers. The Mansfield Rule certification measures whether law firms have affirmatively considered women, attorneys of color, LGBTQ+ attorneys, and attorneys with disabilities — at least 30 percent of the candidate pool — for recruitment, governance roles, equity partner promotions, and inclusion in engagement with clients. Sept. 15, 2020 marks the launch of the first midsize law firm cohort, and we look forward to our work together with Diversity Lab.
