Brown & James Achieves Mansfield Certification

October 10, 2023

Brown & James is proud to announce it has achieved Mansfield Certification.

Mansfield Certification, an initiative from Diversity Lab, measures the structural steps we have taken to enhance inclusivity at our firm and increase diversity in leadership. We’re making progress by fostering transparency through written and accessible advancement processes and broadening the slate of talent considered for internal leadership roles.

This scientific and data-driven approach to boosting inclusion and equity embeds accountability, transparency, and knowledge sharing into our talent practices. As outlined in this recent American Lawyer article by two data scientists, participating in Mansfield leads to more equitable professional development opportunities, and ultimately a more diverse leadership.

We’ve undergone this effort alongside other top-tier firms and legal departments. Like them, we remain dedicated to opening the door wider to all qualified lawyers through the ups and downs of market fluctuations and the ebb and flow of political discourse.

With a leadership team that reflects our workforce and society at large, we can make decisions that best reflect the needs of our talent and clients. Already, we’ve seen and experienced positive change at our firm for everyone.
