Franklin & Prokopik continues to explore ways to strengthen our Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) efforts. The firm is pleased to announce we are currently participating in the Mansfield Rule for midsize law firm’s cohort. F&P is one of more than 70 firms working toward certification.
The Mansfield Rule is designed to diversify leadership in law firms by increasing the representation of historically underrepresented lawyers in firm leadership. Among several parameters, this entails including 30% of female attorneys, attorneys of color, LGTBQ+ attorneys, and/or attorneys with disabilities for hiring considerations, promotions, client pitches, and senior lateral positions.
The certification process will be completed in July 2024, and F&P must meet specific and measurable objectives to earn this distinction.
F&P continues to be an equal opportunity employer, believing that a diverse workforce best suits the needs of our clients. We are committed to recruiting and promoting attorneys regardless of gender, race, ethnicity, disability, religion, sexual orientation, or gender identity. Our participation with the Mansfield Rule reinforces our dedication to continued positive change and ongoing focus on DEI.
