Awards & Rankings
For the 13th time, Pillsbury has earned recognition from Working Mother as one of the 100 Best Companies for working parents in the United States. The firm is one of only five law firms on this year’s list. The annual list honors companies whose benefits and policies show a commitment to supporting and nurturing the careers of working parents. The firm also was named a best law firm for women by the publication for the 11th time earlier this summer, earning a spot in the inaugural Hall of Fame for that list.
To be included on Working Mother’s list, companies must submit an application that includes more than 400 questions covering subjects such as leave policies, workforce representation, benefits, childcare support, advancement programs, flexibility policies and more. Working Mother also focuses on employee usage of available programs and the accountability of those who oversee them.
“Parents are speaking out more than ever before about what they need in order to succeed at work and at home, and employers are paying attention,” says Meredith Bodgas, editor-in-chief of Working Mother. “By implementing family-friendly policies such as flexible schedules, paid parental leave, post-leave phase-back periods and mentoring programs, our 100 Best Companies are taking the needs of their employees into consideration in order to create a supportive, inclusive and productive environment.”
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.
