Cowan, Liebowitz & Latman, P.C. Achieves Mansfield Certification Plus for Diversity and Inclusion Efforts
Cowan, Liebowitz & Latman is proud to announce that the firm has achieved Mansfield Certification Plus!
Mansfield Certification Plus, awarded by Diversity Lab, measures the structural changes and efforts the firm has taken over the past year to ensure its paths to leadership – including lateral hiring, client pitch teams, promotions, and more – are open and transparent to all.
The advancement processes and leadership role descriptions at the firm are now written, clear, and accessible. This high level of transparency is part of a larger effort the firm is undertaking through Mansfield to broaden the slate of talent considered for opportunities – both internally and externally.
The “Plus” designation indicates that the firm has not only taken steps to increase inclusivity in leadership, but also has made measured progress in doing so. This is no small feat as only half of the Certified firms achieved this honor this year.
Why This is Important to the Firm and Clients
- Mansfield’s processes seek to ensure equal opportunity and access to leadership roles. With diverse leadership comes more inclusive and equitable decisions that reflect the needs of the entire workforce for the benefit of the firm and its clients.
- The Mansfield framework helps us take an inclusive, structured, and data-driven approach to making decisions, such as how to build client pitch teams or who to elect to leadership roles. Overall, this ensures that the talent pipeline includes a continuous inclusive stream of qualified individuals.
- Data shows that having an equitable advancement process helps diversify leadership at firms that continue to follow Mansfield’s principles long-term.
Cowan, Liebowitz & Latman is pleased to have reached this significant milestone. The firm will continue to build teams that reflect the diversity of its clients and communities while providing exceptional service.
