Mintz has been designated as a 2021 "Tipping the Scales" firm by the Diversity & Flexibility Alliance for having 50% or more women in its U.S.-based new partner class. Mintz was one of 67 firms recognized during the Diversity and Flexibility Alliance's annual conference on November 3 and identified in the Diversity & Flexibility Alliance's New Partner Report, a compilation of public data released annually over the past decade.
Seven out of the nine new Members in Mintz's 2021 Member Class, announced January 1, are women: LisaMarie Collins, Alison Glover, Angela Kung, Melanie Ruthrauff Levy, Marguerite McConihe, Tali Tuchin, and Lily Zhang.
“Efforts to achieve equality benefit us all,” said Bob Bodian, Managing Member of Mintz. “Mintz is lucky to have so many talented and driven lawyers of all genders and backgrounds, which contributes to our culture of collaboration and inclusion. The firm has made a commitment to attract, hire, and retain more women and make gender-parity a strategic goal.”
"We applaud our member firms, who have made systematic changes and taken intentional steps towards increasing gender diversity," said Manar Morales, President and CEO of the Diversity & Flexibility Alliance.
Mintz is consistently recognized for its innovative diversity and inclusion efforts, including by Chambers Diversity & Inclusion Awards: North America, the Human Rights Campaign Foundation, the National Legal Aid and Defender Association, Vault, and many others. Firm leaders and attorneys have also received individual accolades for their dedication to advancing diversity and inclusion in the legal profession.
