Hogan Lovells Receives Gold Standard Certification from Women in Law Empowerment Forum
23 June 2014
WASHINGTON, D.C. 23 JUNE 2014 – Hogan Lovells is pleased to announce it was recognized by the Women in Law Empowerment Forum (WILEF) with its 2014 Gold Standard Certification for the second consecutive year.
WILEF created the award three years ago to honor firms that are making significant progress in integrating women into leadership positions. Law firms with 200 or more practicing lawyers in the United States are eligible for the WILEF Gold Standard Certification, upon successfully demonstrating that women represent a meaningful percentage of their equity partners in the areas of leadership, governance, and compensation. Hogan Lovells is one of only 45 firms to receive this prestigious honor from WILEF in 2014.
“Hogan Lovells’ women lawyers not only manage many of our most important client relationships, but are leaders throughout the firm,” said Washington, D.C. Regional Managing Partner Emily Yinger. “We are honored to again receive the Gold Standard Certification.”
WILEF’s vision is to create a dialogue for the purpose of educating women in law firms on how to become leaders in the workplace and in the community by building, exercising, and implementing a strong sense of empowerment. Their goal is to achieve results that will foster the adoption of new policies and practices to advance women in law firms.
