St. Louis Business Journal Features Firm's Ranking as Best Law Firm for Women
Stinson was recently named a Best Law Firm for Women by Working Mother magazine for efforts and successes in attracting, retaining, promoting and developing women lawyers. This recognition was featured by the St. Louis Business Journal, as they highlighted the three area firms on this year's list.
In addition to female representation at all levels, Stinson was ranked based on access to parental support programs and support for women's advancement. Among ranked firms, on average almost half of associates and more than a third of partners are women, with firms increasingly offering and encouraging attorneys to use extended parental-leave benefits.
"Diversity, equity and inclusion is one of Stinson's core values and strategic initiatives, and we will continue to strive to create a workplace where women can thrive," said Chief Diversity and Inclusion Officer Ann Jenrette-Thomas.
This recognition builds on Stinson's diversity and inclusion initiatives, which are led by Jenrette-Thomas. Stinson's efforts aim to create a diverse and welcoming environment for all, with flexible work policies, employee resource groups, and programs centered on career success and advancement.
