Brown & Connery, LLP is Proud to Announce a Partnership with Diversity Lab by Participating in the Midsize Mansfield Rule Certification Process

Brown & Connery, LLP is pleased to announce that our firm is participating in Diversity Lab’s Mansfield Rule certification process.  To be Mansfield Certified for 2022-2023, firms are asked to consider at least 30% historically underrepresented lawyers, including women, attorneys of color, LGBTQ+ attorneys, and attorneys with disabilities when appointing, electing, or promoting attorneys into leadership roles and equity partnerships, and engaging in client and firm governance based activities.  

“We are honored to participate in the Midsize Mansfield Rule certification process, which aligns with Brown & Connery’s commitment to fostering a diverse and inclusive workforce where the contributions of people of all backgrounds are valued and integrated into the firm.”

The Mansfield Rule has become the standard by which law firms track and measure their efforts to boost diversity at leadership levels.  Brown & Connery is participating in the 2022-2023 Midsize Mansfield Rule cohort. Participating law firms are asked to share lessons learned with each other through monthly knowledge sharing forums. Law firms must also continue to meet routine check-ins, data collections, and reporting milestones throughout the certification year.

Brown & Connery welcomes and values different ideas, perspectives, and experiences and recognizes this enables us to provide innovative legal solutions to our clients’ most complicated challenges.  We look forward to collaborating with the law firms participating in the program to share ideas and opportunities to progress our firm and the broader legal community.   To learn more about the Mansfield Certification, click here
