Diversity & Inclusion

At Sheppard Mullin, our goal is to maintain a culture in which diverse approaches are applauded. We know that it is the differences, as well as the similarities, that help make us strong.

Sheppard Mullin achieved Mansfield Certification from Diversity Lab, an incubator for innovative ideas and solutions that boost diversity and inclusion in law, and was one of just 27 to earn the Mansfield Certified Plus designation for 2018. The Mansfield Certified Plus designation was awarded to firms that in addition to considering diverse candidate pools, have achieved actual representation of at least 30 percent women and lawyers of color in key leadership roles, equity partner promotions and lateral hires. In addition, in 2019, we were among 64 firms that participated in Mansfield Rule 2.0, which was expanded to include LGBTQ+ lawyers. We continue to partner with Diversity Lab and have committed to participate in Mansfield Rule 3.0, which will add lawyers with disabilities and increase the metrics firms must report on.
