3 Strategic Plan and Diversity Leadership How does the firm's leadership communicate the importance of diversity to everyone at the firm? The Management Committee works closely with the Diversity Steering Committee to execute the Firm's Strategic Plan by focusing on not only recruiting, retention and advancement, but also directing innovative efforts toward integrating diverse attorneys into our lawyer teams, client teams and succession plans. By focusing on integration, we hope to create pathways for success for all within our Firm and position ourselves to be stronger and more successful because of our diversity. Diversity is regularly discussed at Firm meetings. Diversity accomplishments are communicated using the Firm's intranet. The Dorsey News Page highlights various Firm activities; at least once every two months, information about diversity programs is featured. The Managing Partner also distributes Firm-wide communications regarding diversity. A more inclusive Firm calendar was developed for use in scheduling Firm events. The Firm's professional development group regularly hosts educational and training sessions on diversity topics. A few examples of recent educational sessions include: What You Don't Know Can Hurt You: Unconscious Bias and the Practice of Law; Developing and Utilizing a Critical Race Lens in the Practice of Law; and Lean In and Relax: A 's Forum and Client Appreciation Event discussing topics presented in the book "Lean In:, Work, and the Will to Lead." The Firm's mandatory ethics and loss prevention testing includes questions that deal with diversity and the non-discrimination aspects of loss prevention. The Managing Partner bestows special awards to partners to encourage mentoring and inclusion. The Dorsey Diversity Award is an annual award program that recognizes individuals, groups, or offices who contribute greatly to the fabric of the firm by enhancing diversity at Dorsey. The Partner of the Year Award recognizes excellence in mentoring and on-the-job training. The Firm gives special awards to encourage mentoring and inclusion. Who has primary responsibility for leading diversity initiatives at your firm? Continued from response to question above: The Firm conducts annual upward evaluations of its partners and of counsel attorneys. This process is part of our effort to increase partner accountability for behaviors that exacerbate retention issues. The focus is to improve behavior by providing feedback and guidance, as well as help partners set personal objectives. The evaluation information also provides more meaningful kudos to those partners who foster diversity and associate development. Our evaluation processes for all lawyers include diversity-related criteria. In addition, the partner review process includes consideration of upward evaluations, partners' descriptions of their own contributions toward the Firm's diversity goals, and input from the Firm-wide Diversity Committee co-chairs. Partner compensation is adjusted positively or negatively with respect to "Firm citizenship" issues, including diversity. Additionally, bonuses were awarded last year specifically for partner's contributions to diversity efforts. Answer to question "Who has primary responsibility for leading diversity initiatives": Ken Cutler (Managing Partner) together with Lynnette Slater Crandall and Cornell Moore (Diversity Co-Chairs) Does your law firm currently have a diversity committee? Yes If yes, does the committee's representation include one or more members of the firm's management/executive committee (or equivalent)? Yes If yes, how many attorneys are on the committee, and in 2013, what was the total number of hours collectively spent by the committee in the furtherance of the firm's diversity initiatives? Total attorneys on committee: 19 Total hours spent on diversity: 121 Comments: We track diversity time recorded by all Dorsey attorneys, not just Diversity Committee members. Does the committee and/or diversity leader establish and set goals or objectives consistent with management's priorities? Yes Has the firm undertaken a formal or informal diversity program or set of initiatives aimed at increasing the diversity of the firm? Yes If yes, is it formal or informal? Formal How often does the firm's management review the firm's diversity progress/results? Annually How is the firm's diversity committee and/or firm management held accountable for achieving results? The Firm created a methodology to track the allocation of work to women and lawyers of color, which is reviewed by the Firm's Diversity Partners and Department Heads biannually. This process allows the Firm to make adjustments in order to provide equal opportunities for development. Representatives of PPC collaborate with the diversity partners to monitor the quality of work to ensure that our non-majority lawyers are getting opportunities of the same or comparable quality as majority lawyers. Additionally, Dorsey's marketing department tracks the number of diverse lawyers included in client pitches. The Diversity Co-Chairs prepare an annual report on Dorsey's diversity initiatives and progress for review by Management Committee and Policy Committee members.

During the school year, 14 volunteers from Dorsey spent an hour each week tutoring students at Bethune. Additionally, the Firm plans and sponsors a Spring Carnival for the students of Bethune and their families. Since the inaugural Carnival in 2000, this event has become an important and meaningful tradition for the families in this community. The Minneapolis office also partners with Cristo Rey Jesuit High School in the Twin Cities and their Hire4Ed Program. The Hire4Ed program is a nationally successful workstudy model that provides students with real world job experiences while allowing them to earn a portion of the cost of their education. The Firm has been recognized by the school as a leader in their program and we have received compliments not only from the school, but also from other businesses, some of which are clients of the Firm.

21 The Firm Says One of the goals of Dorsey's Strategic Plan is to reinvigorate the Firm's efforts to increase diversity in our workforce by focusing not only on recruiting, retention and advancement, but also on innovative efforts to integrate diverse attorneys into our lawyer teams, our key client teams and our succession planning. By focusing on integration, we hope to create pathways for success for all within our Firm and tap the skills and energy of individuals across the organization to ensure that the Firm's stated goals of diversity and inclusiveness become reality and the Firm becomes stronger and more successful because of our diversity. Our Flexible Work Arrangements (FWA) policy allows our lawyers to opt for a reduced hours' expectation, a flexible full-time schedule, or telecommuting. In order to ensure the success of FWAs, Dorsey has made substantial investments in technology that allow for greater flexibility in meeting client demands. All lawyers are provided laptop computers, Blackberry devices and technical support available around the clock. Also provided is an internet-based document management system and a voic system that is integrated with our system, allowing our lawyers to monitor voic remotely. In 2013, Dorsey made two significant changes to its Parental Leave and Flexible Working Arrangements (FWA) policies. First, Dorsey increased the number of paid weeks of Parental Leave that our attorneys receive from six weeks to eight weeks. Second, Dorsey implemented a change to the FWA policy so that attorneys returning from parental leave are automatically approved for a reduced-hours schedule of at least 60% for the three months following their leave. Additionally, starting on January 1, 2013, Dorsey began providing tax offsets for same-sex domestic partner benefits. Dorsey's Firm wide diversity structure drives the Firm's global diversity effort. The Diversity Co-Chairs serve as a brain trust to the Managing Partner. Their purpose is to identify and explore the best practices and ideas aimed at developing, retaining and advancing diverse legal talent at Dorsey. The Diversity Co-Chairs, together with the Managing Partner, focus their attention on successful integration strategies which will lead to the retention of diverse talent. The full Diversity Steering Committee, made up of partner representatives from each office, develops Firm-wide diversity policies. They work together with the Professional Personnel Committee, the Recruiting Committee, and Professional Development and Marketing Group concerning the impact of diversity initiatives on education, recruiting and workload allocation. They also share strategies and successes and are responsible for monitoring the success of each office's diversity efforts such as mentoring, recruiting and retention, pipeline activities and sponsorships. The Diversity Co-Chairs report progress, successes and concerns to the Management and Policy Committees on an annual basis. In 2013, Dorsey's Managing Partner appointed three women to the Management Committee and Dorsey's partners elected two women to the Policy Committee. We are proud of the following external recognition that we have received over the years for our efforts in ensuring the success of our women lawyers, minority lawyers, and LGBT lawyers. For example: -Dorsey was deemed one of the "Top Ten Family-Friendly Law Firms" in 2008, 2010 and 2011 and given special recognition for "Overall Support of Part/Flex-Time" in 2013 and "Utilization of Parental Leave Policies" in 2014 by Yale Law. -The Human Rights Campaign designated Dorsey as one of the "Best Places to Work" and awarded the Firm a 100% score on their Corporate Equality Index, measuring policies and practices that promote workplace fairness and equality for GLBT employees (2006, 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012, and 2013; there was no 2007 CEI). -Working Mother magazine named Dorsey as one of the "Best Law Firms for " (2007, 2008, 2009, 2011, 2012, and 2013; no awards were offered in 2010). -In 2011 and 2012, Dorsey received Gold Standard Certification from the In Law Empowerment Forum (WILEF). WILEF Certification emphasizes the leadership roles achieved by women equity partners, rather than just the percentage of women partners or the policies or practices of the firm. At Dorsey we are proud of the external recognition that we have received over the years for our efforts in ensuring the success of our diverse lawyers. However, the external recognitions that Dorsey as a law firm has received are less important than the success and recognitions that our diverse lawyers have experienced. For example: -Lynnette Slater Crandall (Partner in Minneapolis) was named to Finance & Commerce's 50 Top in Finance list in Annette Jarvis (Partner in Salt Lake City) was selected as the Distinguished Lawyer of the Year by the Utah Chapter of the Federal Bar Association in In 2013, Elizabeth Buckingham, Sandra Edelman, and Lisa Osman (Partners in Minneapolis, New York, and Denver, respectively) were named to the IP Stars-Top 250 in IP, a new publication from Managing Intellectual Property that identifies the leading female IP attorneys in the U.S. -Hebba Aref (Associate in Minneapolis) was named to Lawyer of Color's inaugural Hot List, selected as one of 100 early- to mid-career minority attorneys under 40 from the Midwest Region. -Eight female Dorsey partners and one minority Dorsey partner were recognized by Chambers and Partners in its annual survey, Chambers USA: America's Leading Lawyers for Business 2013.
