Congratulations to Dorsey & Whitney’s Seattle office on being listed once again as one of Washington’s Most Equitable Workplaces by Puget Sound Business Journal.
Twelve Seattle-area companies made the Business Journal's most equitable workplaces list, in the recently published November 30 edition of the Puget Sound Business Journal. Dorsey was ranked ninth and the only law firm on the list.
Gender Equity Now (GEN), a Seattle-based organization that collaborated with the Business Journal to create the list, surveyed businesses this summer. Companies on the list were scored on five metrics, including how visible the firm is at communicating its commitment to gender equity and its efforts to diminish the impact of unconscious bias. In order to be considered for the ranking, companies had to meet a 60 percent threshold across the five metrics and at least 75 percent of employees had to respond to the survey.
“We are honored to be recognized again by Puget Sound Business Journal as one of the most equitable workplaces,” said Larry Ward, Dorsey Partner and office head of the Firm’s Seattle office. “Success is having both a diverse and profitable law firm, where there is a true sense of belonging.”
Dorsey has received multiple recognitions for being an employer that is supportive of diversity and inclusion and has been named a Best Law Firm for Women by Working Mother magazine, a Best Place to Work for LGBTQ Equality, and has received Mansfield Rule Certification Plus and the Gold Standard Certification from the Women in Law Empowerment Forum.
