Working Mother magazine and Flex-Time Lawyers have named Shook, Hardy & Bacon among their 2014 “50 Best Law Firms for Women.” Fifty law firms were selected based on a lengthy survey of their family-friendly benefits and policies, flexibility, leadership, and compensation of women, among other factors.
“We are so pleased to rank with firms that have demonstrated their commitment to advancing women in the profession by adopting policies that have made a real difference in the numbers of women advancing to partnership and leadership positions,” said Kori Carew, Shook’s Director of Strategic Diversity Initiatives. “That Working Mother magazine and Flex-Time Lawyers singled Shook out for our significant women’s representation on the executive committee as well as the training and coaching initiatives available to our female attorneys is a testament to our innovative diversity and inclusion solutions.”
