Hausfeld is pleased to announce the firm has achieved Mansfield Certification Plus, affirming the firm’s commitment to supporting and increasing diversity, equity, and inclusion in the legal profession
Hausfeld is proud to announce that it has achieved Mansfield Certification Plus for 2022-2023. Mansfield Certification Plus, awarded by Diversity Lab, measures the structural changes made to ensure the firm is considering a broad pool of talent, including those historically underrepresented: women lawyers, underrepresented racial and ethnic lawyers, LGBTQ+ lawyers and lawyers with disabilities – for leadership roles and career advancement opportunities, including lateral hiring, client pitch teams, promotions and more. The “Plus” designation indicates that in addition to the steps taken to increase inclusivity in leadership, the firm made measured progress in doing so. Only half of the certified firms achieved this honor this year.
“We’re proud our firm continues to achieve Mansfield Certification Plus,” said Reena Gambhir, the firm’s U.S. Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Partner. “We’ve participated in this effort since its inaugural midsize firm version. The Mansfield framework has allowed us to broaden and deepen our commitment to fostering an equitable, diverse and inclusive firm and legal industry.”
Hausfeld has committed to continuing this important work as part of Mansfield’s next certification cohort in 2023-2024.
