We all know there’s a problem. Women represent only 18 percent of partners in the nation’s largest law firms, 16 percent of equity partners and fewer than 10 percent of managing partners. At every level of firm practice, including partnership, women are leaving at a much higher rate than their male counterparts.

Firms have enacted various measures to address the problem. Diversity committees were created well over a decade ago. Women’s initiatives have been expanded, part-time and flex-time programs strengthened and more personnel and resources are now dedicated to diversity.
