ARLINGTON, Va., April 27, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Bloomberg Law today announced that it is developing a first-of-its-kind Diversity, Equity, & Inclusion (DEI) Framework that will showcase U.S.-based law firms that meet or exceed an established threshold for DEI in their firms. The baseline threshold will be determined utilizing a proprietary, data-driven methodology and is being developed in collaboration with a panel of experts from industry, academia, and the legal industry.
"Our DEI Framework will be an invaluable resource for companies that are looking for a trusted third-party benchmark that can help them select diverse, equitable, and inclusive law firms – ones that reflect their corporate values," said Joe Breda, president, Bloomberg Law. "At the same time, law firms that participate in the DEI Framework will demonstrate their commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion to current and prospective clients and employees."
Firms will be benchmarked through a comprehensive range of criteria including their programs, policies, and demographics. More information is available at http://onb-law.com/Vw2L50Evy7z.
