Diversity, Inclusion & Advancement

“With more than 2,500 lawyers across the world, our lawyers have a wonderful array of cultural, religious, and social differences. We offer an environment where all people have the ability to succeed based on their individual hard work and talent.”

Yvette McGee Brown, Partner-in-Charge of Diversity, Inclusion & Advancement

As a truly global institution with more than 40 offices on five continents, Jones Day's demonstrated commitment to diversity does not stop with recruitment. Many of the Firm's practice and office leaders, and many of our most high-profile attorneys, come from ethnicities or backgrounds historically underrepresented in the legal profession. Globally, more than half of Jones Day's office and practice leadership positions are held by women and persons of color.

Jones Day is committed to making meaningful progress on diversity in the legal profession; to increasing diversity within the Firm; and to recruiting, retaining, and promoting the best attorneys and law students from all backgrounds.

Diversity makes Jones Day better—for our clients and for our lawyers.

1L Diversity Conference

After monitoring the COVID developments closely, we made the difficult decision to cancel the 2020 Jones Day 1L Diversity Conference. While we are disappointed, we believe it is the only prudent decision as the safety of the students, our lawyers, staff, and clients is paramount.

Jones Day will host "Perspectives and Pathways," our fifth annual 1L Diversity Conference, beginning with a kickoff reception at 6pm on Friday, April 3, 2020 and continuing through the day on Saturday, April 4, 2020, in New York City.
