Oct. 13 2021 – Bloomberg Law has named Davis Wright Tremaine LLP to a nationwide list of firms that have distinguished themselves on a key set of DEI metrics.
The inaugural Bloomberg Law Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Framework measures law firm performance across six core pillars: demographics, leadership and talent pipeline, recruitment and retention, business innovation and strategy, DEI in the community, and marketing. The scoring methodology also evaluates firms on their transparency.
Just 28 firms nationwide achieved scores that met the threshold to be included in this year's listing. Davis Wright Tremaine exceeded—in some cases, significantly—the average firm score across all six pillars.
"Bloomberg Law's framework provides another accountability tool for our firm, and the industry at large, as we work to advance DEI in the legal profession," said Yusuf Zakir, chief diversity, equity, and inclusion officer at Davis Wright Tremaine. "We are proud that Bloomberg has recognized the results of our efforts, but we also see this as a continued call to action to do better—and we must."
