Winget Spadafora & Schwartzberg, LLP is pleased to be among the 70 midsized law firms selected for Mansfield Certification. The selection was a culmination of a rigorous 18-month collaboration to track, measure, and achieve diversity in leadership. This achievement for WSS further demonstrates its commitment to diversity, equity and inclusion and boosting representation in firm leadership.

Why This Matters

The goal of Mansfield is to increase and sustain diversity in law firm leadership through a science-driven method that embeds accountability, transparency, and knowledge sharing into our talent practices. We know that with diverse leadership comes more inclusive and equitable decisions that reflect the needs of our diverse workforce for the benefit of our talent and clients.

What We Do in Practice

What does this mean in practice at our firm? Whenever our leaders make a decision about who to appoint or elect to leadership roles, we proactively consider a broad slate of talent including lawyers who are historically underrepresented in law. The same inclusive decision making takes place when we build client pitch teams. And, as part of Mansfield, we also work hard to ensure that our processes for advancement and the job expectations/qualifications for leaders at the firm are transparent.

The Mansfield framework helps us ensure that we approach succession planning for the next generation of leaders in an inclusive, structured, and intentional manner consistently across offices and practice groups.

Winget, Spadafora & Schwartzberg, LLP is pleased to have reached this significant milestone and we will continue to build teams that reflect the diversity of our clients and communities while providing innovative counsel and exceptional service.
