Calfee, Halter & Griswold LLP is pleased to share that the firm has again earned Mansfield Certification, successfully completing a year-long collaboration with Diversity Lab to measure and be held accountable for achieving meaningful progress toward greater diversity, equity, and inclusion.

Mansfield Certification, awarded by Diversity Lab, measures the structural changes and steps we have taken over the past year to ensure our paths to leadership – including lateral hiring, client pitch teams, promotions, appointments, and more – are open and transparent to all qualified lawyers.

We have undergone this effort with the support of our clients as well as the legal departments that are also participating in Mansfield. Like them, we remain dedicated to opening the door wider to all qualified lawyers and ensuring that opportunities for advancement are inclusive for everyone.

Mansfield takes a behavioral science approach that embeds accountability, transparency, and knowledge sharing into our talent practices. This framework helps us take an inclusive, structured, and data-driven approach to leadership advancement – and ensure the approach is consistent across offices and practice groups. This intentionality benefits everyone, including our workforce (from leadership through to our talent pipeline), our clients and our community.

Calfee is pleased to have reached this significant milestone. We will continue to build teams that reflect the diversity of our clients and communities while providing exceptional service.

We thank you for partnering with us to build a more inclusive legal field. There is more to do, of course, so we look forward to our continued collaboration with you.


Diversity Lab is an incubator for innovative ideas and solutions that boost diversity and inclusion in the legal industry by leveraging data, behavioral science, design thinking, and technology to further develop and test new ideas and research, measure the results, and share lessons learned.
