We have a great maternity leave policy and very good mentoring programs. MoFo makes an effort to keep superstar female (and male and diverse) associates, and the partners and management really do seem to care about diversity.” • “Many women partners and women who are in decision- making positions, which is great. Not many Latino and black associates.” • “The firm has committees specifically dedicated to recruitment and retention of women and of diverse attorneys. The committees promote inclusion and integration among existing attorneys, as well as strategies and initiatives to encourage more diverse hiring. The women’s group also works with firm leadership on retention issues, including the parental leave policy and related issues. In addition, within individual offices, the firm has affinity groups for local diversity initiatives—e.g., local office women’s issues, a local office African-American attorneys group, a new parents’ group, etc. These affinity groups are involved in recruitment efforts, as well as just general team-building and business development activities.”

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
