Intelligent power management company Eaton is excited to announce that it has been named a Mansfield 2.0 Certified Legal Department (MRLD) and achieved the MRLD Certification Plus designation. These achievements indicate that the company has met MRLD’s consideration requirement by considering at least 50% historically underrepresented lawyers for its leadership roles and exceeded it, with underrepresented lawyers comprising at least 50% of Eaton’s current legal leadership team.

“We worked hard for this and it was worth it,” said Terry Szmagala, Eaton’s chief legal officer. “Not only are we doing our part to help Eaton become a model of inclusion and diversity in our industry, but we are also breaking down systemic inequities in hiring practices, changing how people think about candidate pools and increasing the visibility of historically underrepresented talent.”

Based on the Diversity Lab’s Mansfield Rule: Legal Department Edition 2.0, the rigorous two-year certification process provides organizations with a roadmap for increasing the representation of diverse lawyers in leadership roles. Diversity Lab is an incubator for innovative ideas and solutions that boost diversity and inclusion in law.
