Jackson Lewis Receives Gold Standard Certification From Women in Law Empowerment Forum

WHITE PLAINS, NY (June 15, 2017) Jackson Lewis P.C., one of the country’s preeminent workplace law firms, is pleased to announce the firm has been certified as a “Gold Standard Firm” by the Women in Law Empowerment Forum (WILEF). This is the sixth consecutive year Jackson Lewis has achieved the distinction, which is reserved for major firms that meet objective criteria concerning the number of women among equity partners, in firm leadership positions, and in the ranks of their most highly compensated partners. This year, WILEF also introduced diversity of women partners as a determining factor for certification.

“In order to maintain their status as leaders in this area, firms must continue making progress,” explained Libby McGarry, Chair of WILEF’s Certification Committee. “That is why the criteria for certification have become more stringent over the years.”

“Jackson Lewis takes tremendous pride in receiving WILEF’s Gold Standard Certification for the sixth consecutive year,” said Susan M. Corcoran, White Plains Principal and Co-Chair of the Women’s Interest Network (WIN), Jackson Lewis’ resource group committed to involving attorneys in opportunities for business development by and for women. “Every year we continue to build upon our diversity initiatives to ensure we are fostering rewarding opportunities for women and minority attorneys at every level of employment.”

“For many years, Jackson Lewis has been committed to enhancing diversity within the legal profession, increasing diversity within our own workforce and cultivating an inclusive work environment that retains, engages and develops our stellar legal talent,” said Firm Chairman Vincent A. Cino. “We are honored by this recognition and look forward to continuing to improve our execution and implementation of our firm-wide diversity and inclusion goals.”
