“Reed Smith continues to make gender diversity, equity and inclusion a firmwide priority,” said Sandy Thomas, Reed Smith’s global managing partner. “We are grateful to Seramount for helping us benchmark our results and identify our gains year over year in gender and racial parity. We are dedicated to sustaining our momentum in the important areas of gender equity and social justice.”
Each year since 2007, Working Mother Media has conducted an in-depth survey designed to showcase law firms’ efforts and successes in recruiting, retaining, promoting and developing women lawyers. The firms earning recognition are selected on the basis of extensive demographic data reflecting their women lawyers’ status, including multicultural women, and information on their hiring, retention and advancement practices.
Reed Smith ranked well in all three clusters assessed by Seramount this year, including Female Representation, Flexibility and Leave/Time Off and Support for Women’s Advancement.
