In recognition of Pillsbury’s continual efforts to advance women in the legal profession, the firm has again earned a spot on Working Mother’s prestigious list of the very best law firms for women. A total of just 60 firms are included this year, and a mere 17—each of whom has appeared on the Working Mother’s Best Law Firms for Women list for at least a decade—have been chosen as members of the publication’s inaugural Hall of Fame class. Pillsbury is among that highly exclusive group.
This year marks Pillsbury’s 11th appearance on the best law firms for women list. The annual Working Mother report, prepared in collaboration with the ABA Journal, recognizes those law firms that uphold the highest standards in recruiting, retaining, promoting and developing women lawyers.
“It’s heartening to see the progress women lawyers are making at firms committed to fully utilizing these attorneys’ abilities,” said Meredith Bodgas, editor-in-chief of Working Mother. “The war for talent is increasing incentives for law firms to invest in retaining women lawyers, which is why we’re seeing more women’s initiatives and parental-support groups. By highlighting what our top firms are doing, we hope others in the legal community will follow.”
Pillsbury takes great pride in its steadfast commitment to building a diverse and inclusive culture. The firm was among the first to promote women to partnership and the first large, national firm in the U.S. to elect a woman as its top leader. Year after year, Pillsbury’s inclusion efforts are recognized by Vault.com, the National Association of Female Executives and the Human Rights Campaign, among other organizations. The firm earned the 2017 Law Firm of the Year Award from Chambers Women in Law for furthering women’s career progression. To learn more about Pillsbury’s inclusive culture, click here.
