Attracting, Retaining and Mentoring Female Lawyers

Diversity & the Bar

"Cooley's Women's Initiative was founded in 2010 as part of the firm’s core principles to attract, retain and mentor a strong network of female lawyers. Over the past six years, the initiative has experienced high levels of engagement among lawyers and firm leadership, men and women alike. The Initiative’s success—and the overall success of women at Cooley—has been recognized through several external awards and rankings, including being named a 'Best Law Firm for Women' by Working Mother & Flex-Time Lawyers; receiving the Women in Law Empowerment Forum’s Gold Standard Certification four years in a row; gaining recognition on Fortune®’s '100 Best Companies to Work For' and 'Best Workplace for Women' lists; and scoring highly on Law360’s '100 Best Law Firms for Female Attorneys' list."
