06.14.2012 - New York, NY

For the second year in a row, Mintz, Levin, Cohn, Ferris, Glovsky and Popeo, P.C. has earned Gold Standard Certification from the Women in Law Empowerment Forum (WILEF), a designation based on how firms compensate women and integrate them in top leadership positions. Mintz Levin is one of only 50 firms to receive the certification from WILEF.

“We are again delighted to be recognized by WILEF as a Gold Standard Firm,” said Jennifer Rubin, Chair of Mintz Levin’s Diversity Committee and a Member of the firm’s Employment, Labor and Benefits Section. “The firm has made important strides in not only promoting women to partner –Mintz Levin promoted more women than men to partner for the second year in a row – but in creating a culture and environment where men and women are equally capable of succeeding.”

Firms with over 100 attorneys were invited to submit data to earn WILEF’s Gold Standard Certification. The firms that were selected for certification were chosen based on the extent to which the firm has successfully made women equity partners, integrated women partners into its governance structure, and recognized the contributions of women through compensation.

WILEF, founded in 2006, is dedicated to assisting women in law to assume leadership roles within the AmLaw 200 and Fortune 1000 legal departments and within their respective communities. WILEF presents cutting edge programming that provides an educational and networking forum for women in law.
