Chicago’s Winston & Strawn has teamed up with the Minority Corporate Counsel Association (MCCA) to create the First Annual MCCA/Winston & Strawn Survey of Women in Corporate Law Departments. According to the survey, only nine percent — 44 individuals total — of general counsels at Fortune 500 companies are women. “The total number of women general counsel in Fortune 500 companies is still very low, but it’s moving in the right direction,” says Jane Pigott, a Winston & Strawn partner who supervised the survey along with staff members of the MCCA. “It’s too early to say for certain whether there are some industries that will prove to be more open to having women as general counsel,” she added. The results of the survey can be found in Diversity & the Bar, a MCCA publication that supplements Corporate Legal Times, an industry trade journal.
