If you think women don’t need other women to succeed, note that Paul Weiss recently announced its most recent partner class comprised of 11 white men and only one woman. Although the firm does have a strong track record of diversity, the fact that in 2019, they would put forward such a homogeneous partner slate speaks volumes. The full article can be found here.
