Fenwick Awarded Mansfield 6.0 Certification Plus for Advancing Diversity in Leadership

Fenwick has achieved Mansfield 6.0 Certification Plus status from Diversity Lab, following a rigorous 12-month certification process. Fenwick was one of the first firms to partner with Diversity Lab to pilot the Mansfield Rule, obtaining Mansfield Certification​ for our commitment to diversity since the program’s commencement in 2018.

The Mansfield Rule certification process recognizes law firms and legal departments for broadening the talent pools and for their efforts in ensuring that all talent has a fair and equal opportunity to advance into leadership.

“We are proud to have Fenwick’s efforts in advancing the goals that the Mansfield Rule represents. Our diverse talent pool and inclusive workplace are the cornerstones of our Fenwick culture, underpinning the innovative and client-centered services we consistently deliver,” said Fenwick partners Catherine Kevane and Bomi Lee co-chair the firm’s Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Steering Board, and reiterated the firm’s commitment to advancing the principles of the Mansfield Rule.

Fenwick is a leading technology and life sciences law firm recognized for fostering a diverse and inclusive work culture.
