Gardere Receives ‘A’ on Austin Law Firm Diversity Report Card

28 July 2015 News

The Austin Minority Bar Associations issued their 2014 Law Firm Diversity Report Card. For the second consecutive year, Gardere earned an "A" grade for its exceptional minority recruitment, hiring and retention efforts.

The report card is issued annually by the Hispanic Bar Association of Austin, the Austin Black Lawyers Association, the Austin Asian American Bar Association, the South Asian Bar Association of Austin and the Austin LGBT Bar Association. This year, the Diversity Report Card Committee requested information from 30 of the largest law firms in Austin. Of these 30 firms, 23 submitted responses, which were evaluated and provided a grade. This grade is based on the percentage of minority attorneys in each firm, as well as the percentage of minority partners in each firm, recognizing those firms that have done particularly well in retaining and promoting minority attorneys to partnership level.

Only nine of the 23 firms that responded received an "A" grade on the report card. Of those nine firms, Gardere is listed as having the highest composite score of all reporting firms in Austin.
