Robinson Bradshaw Earns Mansfield Certification for Achievements in DiversityPDF
Robinson Bradshaw is pleased to announce the firm has achieved Mansfield 5.0 Certification. This accomplishment recognizes the firm’s deliberate steps to increase and sustain diversity within the firm and its leadership.
“I am proud of our firm for obtaining Mansfield 5.0 Certification and believe it is a worthwhile initiative that will help move the needle on diversity within our firm and the legal industry,” said Managing Partner Allen Robertson. “Some of the positive results stemming from our participation are that we now approach firm leadership and structure changes with increased intentionality and transparency, and more stakeholders across the firm are engaged in our diversity, equity and inclusion efforts.”
Mansfield Certification demonstrates that Robinson Bradshaw is considering a diverse group of lawyers, including underrepresented racial and ethnic lawyers, women lawyers, LGBTQ+ lawyers and lawyers with disabilities, for job openings, promotions, leadership roles and more. To achieve Mansfield 5.0 Certification, Robinson Bradshaw collaborated with Diversity Lab to create, implement and maintain built-in measurement, transparency and accountability mechanisms that further these goals.
“It takes a lot of work for firms to make even incremental changes to longstanding systems, and it is an absolute honor for the Diversity Lab team to see what these firms have achieved over the course of the yearlong certification cycle,” said Kavita Ramakrishnan, Diversity Lab’s Mansfield Rule and Knowledge Sharing senior director.
