Bryan Cave issued the following announcement on April 17.
Bryan Cave Leighton Paisner has been named to the Yale Law Women’s 2019 Top Ten Firms for Gender Equity. This distinction was determined by assessing three categories of polices: (1) representation of women among the firm structure, (2) the representation of women in a firm’s leadership and promotions, and (3) the extent to which a firm is committed to equitable training and mentorship as it looks to the future.
“BCLP’s recognition in this annual survey is indicative of our commitment to gender equity,” said Chief Diversity Officer Lisa Martin. “We are proud that our policies and practices make us a leader among law firms and we are honored by this recognition.”
Now in its 14th year, the Yale Law Women’s Top Ten Firms for Gender Equity and Family Friendliness Report is an annual benchmark of trends among law firms ranked in the Vault 100. It aims to raise awareness of gender disparities within the legal profession, highlight progress being made in the industry, and identify areas for improvement. This year, the report introduced an intersectional approach by incorporating NALP data to recognize attorneys who identify as women of color or LGBTQ+.
