Our Initiatives

At Jones Day, diversity is not only enthusiastically endorsed, but diligently pursued. Diversity makes us better and helps us deliver the service our clients expect. By mentoring and promoting women, people of color, members of the LGBT community, and those who are disabled, we leverage the unique strength and experiences of an exceptionally talented group of attorneys, while improving the atmosphere of our Firm.

Our lawyers come from all over the world. We have 43 offices in 18 countries on five continents. Jones Day lawyers are citizens of 54 nations; they speak 58 languages. They were trained in scores of law schools; they have served in the military, in government, in the judiciary, in academia, and in corporate offices. They truly reflect the entirety of the human race.

Having diverse leaders who serve as genuine role models is not an aspiration at Jones Day. Notably, 14 of our 20 offices and regional leadership positions in the United States, and 26 of the 45 office and regional leadership positions worldwide, are held by women and/or lawyers of color.

We are proud of our accomplishments, and we remain unwaveringly optimistic about the Firm because of our people, who allow us to tap the true potential of our global organization.
