McGuireWoods Champions Diversity and Inclusion
McGuireWoods is committed to diversity and inclusion within our firm, the legal profession and our communities. The firm’s Diversity and Inclusion Committee is led by Jacquelyn Stone, the first African-American Woman to become a partner at the firm.
The firm has five lawyer networks to support the success of diverse and women lawyers. Our networks include the African-American Lawyers Network, the Asian Pacific Lawyers Network, the Hispanic/Latino Lawyers Network, the LGBT Lawyers Network and the Women’s Lawyers Network. The largest of these is our Women Lawyers Network. The chairs of the lawyer networks sit on the Diversity and Inclusion Committee.
McGuireWoods supports diversity and inclusion in many ways, including:
Our diversity and inclusion initiatives have received numerous awards, including the Minority Corporate Counsel Association’s inaugural Innovator Award in recognition of the firm’s Lawyers of Color and LGBT Lawyers Retreats. We also have been recognized as Working Mother/Flex-Time “50 Best Law Firms for Women” for five years. Equality Illinois has recognized McGuireWoods as one of the top law firms in Illinois to show a growing commitment to lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) inclusiveness in the workplace.
A full report of McGuireWoods’ diversity initiatives can be viewed in the 2011 Annual Diversity Report.
