Diversity & Inclusion

Women Attorneys

Sheppard Mullin is committed to the advancement and retention of our women attorneys and strives to create an environment in which all of our women attorneys grow professionally, develop successful legal practices, and flourish as leaders both within our firm and in our communities. 

Women make up half of the elected members on both our Executive Committee and our Compensation Committee. We are partnering with Diversity Lab to pilot the Mansfield Rule. The Mansfield Rule measures whether law firms have affirmatively considered women lawyers and attorneys of color – at least 30% of the candidate pool – for promotions, senior level hiring, and significant leadership roles in the firm.

Individual office groups meet monthly and provide women attorneys with leadership opportunities and ongoing support. They also develop relevant activities and host special client and business development events.
