Washington, DC – Wiley received a “Tipping the Scales” award from the Diversity & Flexibility Alliance during the organization’s 2020 Annual Virtual Conference, for having promoted 50% or more women in the firm’s 2020 new partner class. Of the 137 law firms researched by the Diversity & Flexibility Alliance for their 2020 New Partner Report, Wiley was one of 46 law firms in the country that received this honor.

“Advancing women lawyers into partnership is one of the most important roles I can play as a leader,” said Wiley Managing Partner Peter D. Shields. “At Wiley, we work hard to provide all lawyers with support for their professional development, and opportunities to stretch their skills and rise to the next level.”

The virtual conference, “Moments of Impact: Transforming Organizational Culture,” drew influencers and innovators from the legal and professional services industries to share best practices and examples of initiatives and programs that successfully transform internal cultures through the promotion of flexible work, diversity, inclusion, and equity throughout their organization. The conference also featured an exclusive preview of insights and trends discussed in the Alliance’s 2020 New Partner Report.

The Diversity & Flexibility Alliance is a think tank that collaborates with organizations to develop non-stigmatized flexible work policies that promote inclusive work cultures and help to advance more women into leadership positions. The Alliance provides practical research-based solutions, training workshops, and strategic advisory services that increase organizational effectiveness through diversity and flexibility.
