IPB Achieves Mansfield Certification Plus for the Second Time


Ivins, Phillips & Barker is pleased to announce that we have achieved Mansfield Certification Plus for the second time.  The goal of the  Midsize Mansfield Rule is to ensure all talent at participating law firms has a fair and equal opportunity to advance into leadership. Mansfield is focused on broadening the talent pool for consideration, including those historically underrepresented in the legal profession, to facilitate transparent pathways to leadership. Certified firms have considered broad slates of qualified talent for leadership roles that included at least 30% historically underrepresented lawyers—such as women lawyers, underrepresented racial and ethnic lawyers, LGBTQ+ lawyers, and lawyers with disabilities, as well as working to enhance the transparency of their leadership roles, advancement processes, and compensation policies.

Congratulations to our DEI Committee, firm leadership, and everyone who played a role in our success! We look forward to continuing in our efforts to advance diversity, equity, and inclusion at IPB and in the legal profession, including continuing in the next iteration of the Midsize Mansfield Rule program.
