Jones Day’s commitment to diversity is strong and is demonstrated from the ranks of associates through the highest levels of Firm leadership. As of December 2022, women make up 42% of our U.S. lawyers – 30% of our partnership and 50% of our associates. In the last three years, 19% of the U.S. attorneys admitted to the partnership were diverse and 47% were women. In the United States, 11% of our partners and 22% of our associates are diverse. The Firm’s leadership similarly reflects this commitment.
