“Wowing in its list debut, this firm offers fantastic mentoring and networking opportunities, six affinity groups, tons of alternative work arrangements and 18 weeks of fully paid primary caregiver leave,” says Working Mother regarding Kaye Scholer’s selection.
Firms named to the list lead the industry in creating best practices that support women and working parents by creating flexible work arrangements and offering generous paid parental leave. The firms also focus on fostering business development opportunities for women, parity with men in compensation, and increasing the representation of women among equity partners and in leadership.
