20 The Firm Says Diversity is one of the defining qualities of our culture, and Perkins Coie's mission is to ensure that everyone feels empowered and equipped to participate fully. Our goal is to develop an inclusive community where all lawyers excel to their best ability. Our recent priorities have centered around the recruitment, retention and promotion of diverse lawyers. One of our long-standing recruiting tools is our 1L Diversity Fellowship (Fellowship) which provides 1L students a paid summer associate position and a $7,500 scholarship. In 2013, eight fellowships were awarded across the firm, and the firm started a program to maintain relationships with strong candidates who were in the pool of Fellowship candidates. Called the Keep in Touch Program, participants are assigned a lawyer mentor and receive periodic communication from the firm, including invitations to attend events, with the goal of recruiting them for the 2L summer associate program. We also regularly solicit input and referrals from our affinity groups for open positions for lateral partners and associates. As important as recruitment, the retention of diverse lawyers is essential. Some of the firm's efforts are dedicated to professional development through regular monitoring and training. To help achieve this, practice group leaders meet monthly with the Diversity Department to monitor and discuss the development, hours and assignments of lawyers in key practice groups. This attention requires active follow up on a regular basis. This includes meetings with assigning lawyers, supervising lawyers and other stakeholders to ensure progress towards developmental goals and competencies each month. In addition to formal training and development programs, the firm's affinity groups also offer opportunities that provide professional and business development training. For example, the 's Forum affinity group hosted a business development training series for all women lawyers to encourage them to work collectively to cultivate relationships and develop business. The firm also ensures diverse lawyers participate in a firmwide coaching program that helps partners expand their books of business. In addition, the firm hosted the 2013 Lawyers of Color/GLBT/Lawyers with Disabilities Retreat, giving diverse lawyers additional opportunities for professional and business development. The programming and the opportunity to connect across the firm and practice groups was an important element of retention support. The outcomes included associates creating individual professional development plans, partners better understanding components of their compensation and meetings with firm leadership to discuss challenges and opportunities for success at the firm. The firm also focused on retention by creating a supportive work environment through various policies and initiatives, including the Flexible Career Track policy and a generous part-time policy. The Flexible Career Track policy provides lawyers ways to adjust their career path and to step on and off the partnership track in a supported and structured way. The firm also creates a supportive work environment through a generous part-time policy that is accessible to lawyers of all levels and tenure. There is no limit on the amount of time a lawyer can work part-time, and part-time lawyers get compensated on par with their full-time colleagues, i.e. a part-time lawyer working an 80% schedule earns a salary that is 80% of a full-time lawyer at the same level. Part-time lawyers are also eligible for "make whole" bonuses which fully pay lawyers for all extra time worked over their part-time arrangement. Believing that an inclusive community supports retention, the firm also offers the same benefits to domestic partners and married spouses. This commitment, along with other policies, was acknowledged by the Human Rights Campaign, which gave the firm a 100 percent rating in the Corporate Equality Index. This commitment to creating a supportive work environment has resulted in other recognitions in 2013, including Gold Standard Certification by the in Law Empowerment Forum for integrating women into the highest leadership positions in the firm, inclusion as one of the "2013 Best Law Firms for " by Working Mother and Flex-Time Lawyers LLC and being one of Yale Law 's Top Ten Family Friendly Firms. Finally, the firm's efforts to monitor and support our partner pipeline proved successful in As a result, over 50% of the partners elevated in 2013 (effective 1/1/2014) were diverse. This included eight women and five lawyers of color. Perkins Coie aspires to be a place where diverse legal teams deliver the best solutions, ideas and innovations for our clients.
