Vinson & Elkins Recognized for the Third Consecutive Year to Bloomberg Law’s Annual Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Framework
Vinson & Elkins today announced that it has been named to Bloomberg Law’s third annual Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) Framework.
For the third year in a row, Vinson & Elkins is one of 55 U.S.-based law firms that was recognized for its level of disclosure of diversity-related metrics and distinguished performance against six core pillars: demographics, leadership and talent pipeline, recruitment and retention, business innovation and strategy, marketing, and diversity & inclusion in the community.
“As one of the world’s leading law firms, our diversity, equity, and inclusion efforts are focused on meaningful solutions that allow us to attract, retain and promote the best and brightest lawyers and business professionals,” said Hy Pomerance, Chief Talent Officer at Vinson & Elkins. “This recognition from Bloomberg Law reflects our deep-rooted commitment to nurturing an inclusive environment that celebrates the unique perspectives and talents of all our team members.”
“DEI remains a critical factor for general counsel seeking to engage law firms that reflect their values, and we’ve brought our industry expertise and strength in data analytics to bear in assessing how law firms are performing in this critical arena,” said Joe Breda, president, Bloomberg Law. “Through a demonstrated commitment to DEI, Vinson & Elkins is helping to move the legal industry forward and we’re pleased to recognize their performance.”
Firms were assessed across more than 85 metrics, each associated with one of the framework’s six core pillars: demographics, leadership and talent pipeline, recruitment and retention, business innovation and strategy, marketing, and diversity and inclusion in the community.
