Orrick Named One of Fortune's 2017 Best Workplaces for Women


Orrick is one of four law firms named to Fortune’s 100 Best Workplaces for Women list, adding to the growing recognition we have received for our commitment to being one of the best places in the world to work.

The Fortune profile highlights our initiatives to promote mentoring, professional development and diversity at the firm, including programs to advance women to leadership.

The Best Workplaces for Women list considered more than 400,000 employee surveys from hundreds of businesses in all sectors of the economy. The ranking gauged women’s assessment of their organizations’ culture, leadership, fairness and other elements essential for a great workplace.

Orrick is consistently recognized for the ways we invest in women within our firm, at our clients and in our communities. We are one of only four firms on all three leading measures of the best firms for women: Working Mother magazine and Flex-Time Lawyer’s Best Law Firms for Women list, Yale Law Women’s Top 10 Family Friendly Firms and the WILEF Gold Standard Certification, which recognizes success in advancing women to leadership.

Earlier this year, Fortune named Orrick one of the 100 Best Companies to Work For and one of the 100 Best Workplaces for Millennials – both for the second consecutive year.
