Meagher + Geer is proud to announce that it has joined Midsize Mansfield Rule to expand the firm’s commitment to equity and inclusion. This 18-month certification process is designed to boost diversity in leadership for firms with fewer than 150 lawyers. Meagher + Geer is one of 70+ major law firms participating in the Midsize program.

The overall goal of the Midsize Mansfield Rule, administered by Diversity Lab, is to increase the representation of historically underrepresented in  law firm leadership by broadening the pool of candidates considered for these opportunities.

Diversity Lab is an incubator for innovative ideas and solutions that boost diversity and inclusion in law. Experimental ideas are created through its Hackathons and piloted in collaboration with more than 150 top law firms and legal departments across the country. Diversity Lab leverages data, behavioral science, design thinking, and technology to further develop and test the ideas, measure the results, and share the lessons learned.
