Hunton Andrews Kurth LLP is pleased to announce it has been named to Bloomberg Law’s second Diversity, Equity, & Inclusion (DEI) Framework. Hunton Andrews Kurth is one of 43 U.S.-based firms recognized for its distinguished performance within Bloomberg Law’s six core pillars: demographics, leadership and talent pipeline, recruitment and retention, business innovation and strategy, marketing, and diversity and inclusion in the community.
Acknowledged by Bloomberg Law, Hunton Andrews Kurth is honored for the second consecutive year for its exceptional efforts to champion diversity and inclusion. Last year, the firm earned a placement in Bloomberg Law’s inaugural DEI Framework.
“We are proud of our Diversity & Inclusion initiatives at Hunton Andrews Kurth and continuously aim to promote a culture of collaboration, respect, involvement and empowerment within our firm, for our clients and for our community,” said Shemin V. Proctor, one of three diverse partners who make up the firm’s Diversity & Inclusion Committee. Hunton Andrews Kurth established its first Diversity Committee 30 years ago.
“The desire to incorporate DEI into the selection process for outside legal services presents a new challenge for the industry, but Hunton Andrews Kurth has distinguished itself as a law firm worthy of consideration,” said Joe Breda, President, Bloomberg Law. “Through a demonstrated commitment to DEI, Hunton Andrews Kurth is helping to move the legal industry forward and we recognize their performance by naming them as a member of our 2022 DEI Framework.”
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.
