Alexis S. Gettier, Ruth S. Moskowitz and Namita Tripathi Shah were quoted in an article, "We're Calling It: 2019 Is Year of Female Law Partner in Connecticut," published in the Connecticut Law Tribune. The article about partnership diversity spotlights Day Pitney among Connecticut law firms that have increased the number of women partners. Gettier told the Connecticut Law Tribune she has felt "so supported" as a woman, mother and working attorney at the firm. "The word on the street is that Day Pitney is ahead of the curve on these things, and other firms are clearly looking to us as an example of what they should be doing for their employees," she said. "I'm sure that affects the bottom line as well."

Both Gettier and Moskowitz said a culture of support was a key part of their success at the firm and that they are paying forward to up-and-coming female associates. "It's reassuring to be part of an organization that has a tradition of supporting and promoting women," Moskowitz said. Shah told the Connecticut Law Tribune, "I think Day Pitney has been at the forefront" of supporting women, adding that she has stayed at Day Pitney for years "because of that supportive culture."
