Diversity Honors and Awards

Diversity Honors

A Record of Accomplishment

Haynes and Boone has long been recognized as a pioneer in the area of diversity and women initiatives. In fact, the firm appears in many “Top 100” rankings related to diversity and women matters. Although we are proud of this recognition, the firm views these accomplishments as small steps towards a greater goal.

We believe that recognition for our diversity efforts helps build momentum to support our recruitment and retention of the widest and best cross-section of attorney talent. That is why we are proud of such designations and rankings as these:
