Arent Fox Named to American Lawyer’s A-List for Gender Diversity
The recognition follows Law360 naming Arent Fox one of the best firms in the country for women as a result of its high percentage of female partners. Arent Fox was also awarded a perfect score on the HRC 2019 Corporate Equality Index.
Arent Fox’s support for its women lawyers is driven, in part, by AFWomen, an initiative that promotes professional development, fosters business connections, and provides exposure and opportunities to attorneys. This commitment is reflected in the initiative’s three pillars, “Lead. Develop. Connect.”
The firm’s commitment to diversity and inclusion extends beyond AFWomen. Arent Fox Minority Attorneys Group (AFMAG) and OutFox, an LGBTQ mentorship program, work in tandem with AFWomen to follow the firm’s pledge to recruit, retain, and promote lawyers of color, women, and LGBTQ lawyers. Arent Fox diversity initiatives additionally work to ensure that adequate firm resources are dedicated to training, mentoring, coaching, and business development for these attorneys.
