As a testament to the firm’s sustained commitment to the advancement of women, Fox Rothschild LLP is pleased to announce it has again been named among the Best Law Firms for Women by Working Mother magazine.
For the fifth time and the second consecutive year, Fox was recognized for its female representation, compensation, flexibility for mothers re-entering the workforce and support for women’s advancement and leadership.
“We are thrilled to be recognized for the firm’s continued work toward the elevation and retention of women throughout the firm’s nationwide network,” said Lauren P. McKenna and Nancy Yaffe, co-chairs of Fox’s Women’s Initiative. “The firm’s robust Women’s Initiative actively works to create opportunities for growth and advancement, and we are delighted to not only have the full support of the firm in this endeavor but also to be recognized for the results.”
Fox strives to create a diverse and inclusive workforce and recognizes the benefits that come along with one. Women lawyers at Fox sit on the firm’s executive committee, serve as department chairs and practice group leaders and lead numerous firmwide committees.
As evidence of Fox’s ongoing dedication to this effort, in 2017, three of the firm’s six new office managing partners were women. In addition, firm partners recently elected two women to fill three open slots on the firm’s Executive Committee.
The Women’s Initiative at Fox seeks to promote women attorneys within the firm as well as advance Fox’s women attorneys in the legal community. In keeping with its objectives, the Initiative offers assistance with marketing and networking, peer support and mentoring, as well as investing resources into the recruitment and career development of women attorneys.
Additionally, Fox supports the participation and contribution of its women attorneys to numerous organizations within their local communities, including those committed to women’s’ interests.
The sought-after 50 Best Law Firms for Women ranking began in 2007 to recognize firms that lead the industry in initiatives for women’s business development and career advancement, plus offer flexible work arrangements and generous paid parental leave, among other important benefits.
The firm will be honored at the awards gala on October 4 at The Peninsula Chicago.
