Ice Miller Awarded Mansfield 5.0 Certification Status

Ice Miller LLP is pleased to report the firm has earned Mansfield 5.0 Certification status.

Ice Miller was one of over 180 law firms that participated in Diversity Lab’s Mansfield Rule certification program. The goal of the program is to boost the representation of lawyers from historically underrepresented groups in law firm leadership by broadening the pool of candidates considered for those opportunities. 

When Diversity Lab first launched its pilot certification in 2017, the primary requirement was to consider at least 30 percent women lawyers and lawyers underrepresented racially and ethnically for leadership roles. Now, law firms are required to consider at least 30 percent of historically underrepresented lawyers, including LGBTQ+ lawyers and lawyers with disabilities, when appointing leadership roles and promoting into the equity partnership, among a dozen other activities that focus on the path to leadership. Additionally, firms must consider 30 percent underrepresented talent for C-suite roles. Firms are also asked to share lessons learned with each other through monthly knowledge sharing forums, and must continue to meet routine check-in, data-collection and reporting milestones. 

“Our firm is committed to recruiting, developing and retaining talented attorneys and professional staff from all backgrounds and we are honored to participate in the Mansfield Certification process so that we may further promote diversity, equity and inclusion at Ice Miller,” said Myra Selby, Partner-in-Charge of Diversity and Inclusion. “We take great pride in fostering a culture of inclusion where everyone feels respected, is treated fairly and has the opportunity to perform at their highest potential.”

The firm's strategic focus is to build an inclusive culture and equitable systems that retain and advance team members from all backgrounds. Achieving Mansfield Certification directly advances this mission. Ice Miller values diversity and inclusion at all levels and is committed to recruiting, developing and retaining talented attorneys and professional staff from all backgrounds.
