Debevoise & Plimpton LLP has been ranked first in the newly released 2017 Chambers Associate Diversity Survey. The Chambers Associate rankings are based on a survey of associates, who are asked to rate their firms in a range of categories, including diversity recruiting, inclusivity training, mentoring, staffing and retention.
In naming Debevoise to the top spot, Chambers cited the firm’s unyielding dedication to diversity—namely the progress of the firm’s initiatives to improve diversity and inclusion, and open dialogue about where the firm stands on diversity and where its emphasis will be placed in the future.
Debevoise is committed to promoting the diversity of our community. Firm lawyers are also actively engaged with a wide range of organizations whose missions are focused on diversity and inclusion. Through work with the Leadership Council on Legal Diversity, Catalyst, the National Association for Women Lawyers and participation in important education programs such as A Better Chance, Prep for Prep, the Law MENTOR Program and the PENCIL Program, Debevoise partners are striving to make a meaningful difference on these issues.
