Parker Hudson is proud to announce the firm has achieved Mansfield Certification Plus for the 2021-2023 certification period.

The Mansfield Certification, facilitated by Diversity Lab, recognizes the structural changes and actions we have taken over 18-months to diversify leadership in our firm by broadening the slate of talent considered for internal leadership roles and increasing transparency with written and accessible advancement processes and role descriptions. Our Certification “Plus” status indicates that, in addition to successfully meeting the consideration and transparency requirements, our firm has achieved at least 30% representation of historically underrepresented lawyers in current leadership roles and pathway activities.

“In order to foster diversity, equity, and inclusion within the legal field and our organization, it takes an unwavering commitment, active cooperation, and purposeful endeavors to drive meaningful change. We are grateful to have participated in the Mansfield Rule certification process, and to see the positive effect it has had on our firm, building on our already strong foundation of DEI initiatives and efforts,” said Harrison Roberts, Parker Hudson’s Managing Partner.

“Mansfield Certification is a testament to our steadfast dedication to diversity, equity, and inclusion. This milestone strengthens our ability to serve clients and fosters a more equitable future for the legal industry and Parker Hudson,” said Johnna Goodmark, Parker Hudson’s Diversity Committee Chair.

We are committed to creating a firm that truly reflects the communities that we serve and to achieving even higher diversity goals for ourselves. We are very proud of this certification, but our participation in the Mansfield Rule does not end here. We are renewing our commitment for the next certification period.
