Idaho Business Review Discusses Stoel Rives Diversity Programs with Firm Managing Partner-Elect Melissa Jones

In The News

Stoel Rives Firm Managing Partner-elect Melissa Jones recently discussed the firm’s strategic focus on diversity and inclusion with the Idaho Business Review.

The article explores the firm’s announcement in September of its participation in Diversity Lab’s Move The Needle Fund (MTN), a national effort to boost diversity and inclusion among law firms. It also discussed the firm’s recent achievement of Mansfield Rule Law Firm Certification, which measures whether legal departments have affirmatively considered at least 30% women, people of color, LGBTQ, and lawyers with disabilities for leadership and governance roles.

Jones explained that Stoel Rives is committed to supporting attorneys who hail from a diverse range of backgrounds and experiences.

“We believe that a more diverse law firm is a better law firm,” said Jones. “Our efforts to increase the diversity of our firm have been driven by our deeply held belief that increasing diversity – of race, of gender, of religion, of sexual orientation, of socioeconomic status, of thought, of experience, of individuals with disabilities, and more – helps us to be better legal counselors and problem solvers.”
