Kennedys join diversity project
Kennedys are one of the first UK firms to sign up to the Mansfield Rule
Kennedys has signed up to the Mansfield Rule, a US diversity project recently launched in the UK. The Mansfield Rule is a 12-month certification process, aimed at boosting the representation of underrepresented lawyers in law firm leadership. 14 leading UK firms are piloting the project over the next year. The project measures whether firms have considered at least 30 per cent women, racial and ethnic minorities, LGBTQ+ lawyers and lawyers with disabilities for top leadership roles, equity partner promotions, client pitch opportunities and senior lateral positions.
