MINNEAPOLIS, MN—Stinson LLP proudly announces its certification under the Mansfield 4.0 Rule, the fourth round of certification under the Mansfield Rule, which focuses on diversity in leadership and helps create systemic change to foster long-term inclusion and equity in our workplaces. The certification recognizes firms that not only consider candidate pools made up of at least 30% women, lawyers of color, LGBTQ+ lawyers, and lawyers with disabilities but have also achieved at least 30 percent representation in a substantial number of their leadership roles and committees.
Named after Arabella Mansfield, the first woman admitted to practice law in the U.S. 151 years ago, the Mansfield Rule was one of the winning ideas from the 2016 Women in Law Hackathon competitions hosted by the Diversity Lab, in collaboration with Bloomberg Law and Stanford Law School.
