Wiley Receives Diversity & Flexibility Alliance ‘Tipping the Scales’ Award for Third Year in a Row
Washington DC – Wiley is pleased to announce that for the third year in a row, the firm has received a “Tipping the Scales” award from the Diversity & Flexibility Alliance for having 50% or more women in its 2022 new partner class. As one of just 57 law firms in the nation to receive this award, Wiley is proud to be among those not just advocating for gender parity, but also making it a reality. This year, the award is particularly notable because of the overall decline in the percentage of new women partners in major U.S. law firms by 2.1%
“This recognition reflects our firm’s commitment to provide opportunities and growth to our women attorneys,” said Rashida MacMurray-Abdullah, Wiley’s Chief Diversity Officer. “Wiley remains committed to removing barriers for women, promoting women attorneys into positions of leadership and influence as well as providing the exposure, mentorship, and substantive opportunities to enable them to meet their career aspirations.”
The Diversity & Flexibility Alliance is a think tank that works with law firms and other organizations to help them better understand their unique cultures and promote inclusive and flexible work practices that help advance more women into leadership positions. The Alliance provides practical research-based solutions, training workshops, and strategic advisory services to help organizations increase their overall effectiveness through diversity and flexibility.
