Mayer Brown was recognized with Accenture’s “Outside Counsel Diversity Award.” The annual award celebrates firms working with Accenture that are committed to advancing diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI) across the legal industry—and making tangible progress.
Accenture recognized Mayer Brown for its comprehensive strategic plan to accomplish its DEI goals. The firm’s dedicated team of DEI professionals and Diversity Steering Board work with leadership and all firm affinity groups to ensure that diverse lawyers can reach their full potential and are provided with opportunities to be leaders in the firm. The firm’s Mansfield 4.0 Certification underscores its progress in diversifying leadership.
“We are honored to receive Accenture’s recognition of our DEI initiatives from such a valued client and business partner,” said Jeremiah DeBerry, Mayer Brown partner and Director of Diversity, Equity & Inclusion. “Mayer Brown is committed to cultivating a work environment in which we embrace, respect and value diversity, equity and inclusion, and in which our shared dedication to excellence, teamwork and outstanding client service unites us. We continue to introduce and build upon numerous initiatives aimed at helping each of us live these values, every day, in all our offices worldwide.”
