Williams & Connolly Commits to Improving Diversity and Inclusion Through Mansfield Rule 6.0 Participation

September 2022

Williams & Connolly is proud to join the 180+ law firms committed to increasing diversity amongst leadership in the Mansfield 6.0 Certification process. The latest iteration of the Mansfield Rule is a significant diversity and inclusion initiative that raises the bar for law firms. Among a dozen other initiatives that concentrate on the path to leadership, law firms are required to agree to consider at least 30% historically underrepresented lawyers—women, attorneys of color, LGBTQ+ attorneys, and attorneys with disabilities—when promoting individuals to equity partnership positions and leadership positions.

Williams & Connolly recognizes diversity and inclusion as core values. Our Diversity & Inclusion Committee, chaired by Chief Diversity Partner Malachi Jones, develops and monitors initiatives to achieve our goals, and the entire firm implements them. Our commitment to diversity and inclusion makes us better able to serve our clients and community.
