Morrison & Foerster was honored to be selected as a 2021 ChIPs Honor Roll Award winner as a result of its Inclusion Blueprint Leadership & IP Index Score and “Do Something Hard” commitment.
The Inclusion Blueprint is a joint initiative between ChIPs, a nonprofit organization focused on advancing and connecting women in technology, law, and policy, and Diversity Lab. It differs from traditional diversity surveys in that it goes beyond just measuring headcount. In addition to assessing the overall representation of diversity in leadership, the Inclusion Blueprint captures a firm’s efforts in monitoring its lawyers’ leave, sponsorship, and other critical development and advancement opportunities. Measuring this data ensures that diverse lawyers have equal access to all opportunities and interrupts unconscious biases that may occur within a firm.
The award was announced during the ChIPs Global Summit, which was held on October 27.
