Sheppard Mullin Recognized In Yale Law Women’s Top Firms For Gender Equity & Family Friendliness Report
Sheppard, Mullin, Richter & Hampton LLP is proud to have been again recognized in Yale Law Women’s annual Top Firms for Gender Equity & Family Friendliness Report. In this year’s report, Sheppard Mullin was noted as one of the top four firms for LGBTQ+ Representation.
“We’re honored, once again, to be part of this prestigious list of law firms,” said Sheppard Mullin Chair Guy Halgren. “Yale Law Women does a tremendous service to the legal industry by publishing this report each year. This year’s new format is a great way to highlight how firms are making progress in a variety of gender/family friendliness areas.”
Partner Jay Ramsey, a co-leader of Out at Sheppard, the firm’s LGBTQ+ affinity group, added, “It’s gratifying that the work we are doing to ensure diversity, gender equity and inclusivity is being celebrated. We’re very proud of what we’ve accomplished and will continue working to achieve more.”
Yale Law Women (YLW) has produced the Top Firms Report for the last 15 years to raise awareness of inequities within the legal profession, highlight progress being made in the industry, and identify areas for improvement. According to YLW, in this year’s report, “individual firms are honored for excelling in specific categories that relate to overall gender equity and family friendliness. Our report attempts to respect the diverse needs and preferences of those in the legal profession with the understanding that creating equitable workplaces will not entail a one-size-fits-all solution.”
