Dority & Manning Pursues Midsize Mansfield Rule Certification to Expand Firm Diversity, Equity and Inclusion

August 25th, 2021

Dority & Manning is pleased to join the 2021-2023 Midsize Mansfield Rule cohort, partnering with Diversity Lab and more than 50 midsize law firms to build a stronger and better legal community through diversity and inclusion. The goal of the Midsize Mansfield Rule is to increase the representation of historically underrepresented lawyers in law firm leadership.

“We are excited to partner with Diversity Lab on this important diversity, equity and inclusion initiative” said Firm Chair Steve Bondura. “The Mansfield Rule was a natural next step in expanding our DE&I efforts and continuing to build an environment where each individual is equally accepted, valued, and empowered.”
