Day Pitney LLP announced the firm has been recognized by the Diversity & Flexibility Alliance for "Tipping the Scales" with its 2022 New Partner Class.
The recognition is based on the Diversity & Flexibility Alliance's 2022 New Partner Report, in which out of 200 law firms researched, only 56 firms had 50 percent or more women in their new partner class. Day Pitney's new partner class for 2022 includes nine women out of eleven new partners, or 82 percent.
"As new members of the Diversity & Flexibility Alliance, we are honored to be recognized for the gender diversity of our 2022 new partner class and will continue to build our pipeline of future women partners and leaders," said Theresa A. Kelly, Partner in Charge of Diversity and Inclusion at Day Pitney.
The recognition was announced at the Diversity & Flexibility Alliance's Virtual Annual Conference "Cultivating a Holistic Work Culture: The Power of People, Purpose & Productivity," on November 3.
The Diversity & Flexibility Alliance works closely with law firms, financial services firms, associations and corporations to understand their unique cultures, as well as their distinct diversity and flexibility challenges and opportunities.

Day Pitney has been recognized by several organizations for its commitment to diversity, equity and inclusion of women at all levels. The firm was included in Law360's "2022 Ceiling Smashers" list from the publication's annual Glass Ceiling Report for being in the top ten for highest representation of women equity partners amongst law firms with 251 to 600 attorneys. The firm also achieved Mansfield 5.0 Certification Plus from the Diversity Lab for the fifth consecutive year, and is participating in the 6.0 iteration of the Mansfield Rule. Day Pitney, which continually renews its commitment to the success and retention of women and other underrepresented groups in the legal industry, is proud of its vibrant women's initiative, Women Working Together (WWT®), a networking and empowerment group for its women attorneys that was formed in 2000.
