Our Chair Jami McKeon sat down with Law360 to discuss her experiences as a woman over the course of her career and her perspective on what’s changing for the better as part of the publication’s Glass Ceiling special feature. She details the firm’s work from home program and its early commitment to the Mansfield Rule, which requires at least 30% of those being considered for a promotion or leadership role to be diverse.

She also addressed her optimism for the legal community’s ability to add more women leaders in the future.

This is nothing more than a problem for the legal profession that those same brains can help solve." Read the full profile and watch the video here.
