Thompson Coburn is one of 43 U.S.-based law firms that have been named to Bloomberg Law’s 2022 Diversity, Equity, & Inclusion (DEI) Framework, released today. The Firm was recognized for its level of disclosure of diversity-related metrics and distinguished performance against six core pillars: demographics, leadership and talent pipeline, recruitment and retention, business innovation and strategy, marketing, and diversity & inclusion in the community. According to Bloomberg Law, Thompson Coburn exceeded the average score of DEI Framework members in nearly every pillar of the framework.
“We’re proud to again achieve membership in Bloomberg Law’s comprehensive DEI Framework,” said Norma Jackson, Thompson Coburn’s Chief Diversity and Attorney Development Officer. “From our pipeline efforts, to our strong involvement in D&I efforts in our communities, to our focus on developing diverse practice and Firm leaders, we work tirelessly to enhance the diversity, equity, and inclusion of our workplace and profession. It’s wonderful to see those efforts recognized by organizations like Bloomberg Law.”
Bloomberg Law’s DEI Framework was developed in 2021 in collaboration with Bloomberg’s Gender-Equality Index team, as well as diversity leads at corporations and U.S.-based law firms. Performance was assessed across more than 85 metrics, each associated with one of the framework’s six core pillars.
Among the key findings of the 2022 report:
Thompson Coburn is committed to creating and fostering a diverse and inclusive workplace culture that recognizes the contributions individuals with different backgrounds and experiences bring to our clients and our Firm.
