Explanation of Voluntary Self Identification Opportunity for EEO-1 and Mansfield Certification: Holland & Hart LLP (the “Firm”) may be required by federal law to compile and file a report (referred to as an “EEO-1”) with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission. The report contains aggregated data of applicants’ gender, race and/or ethnicity, and does not identify applicants by name. Some states in which the Firm does business may also require the collection of such information. We provide every applicant, current employee and newly hired employee the option to voluntarily supply the requested information and take advantage of firm-sponsored programs and initiatives that may benefit them.
Having achieved Mansfield Certification and Mansfield Certification Plus every year, Holland & Hart continues its efforts to advance the representation of diverse lawyers in leadership by various strategic initiatives including ensuring that an all-inclusive applicant base is considered for attorney positions.
The Firm gathers race/ethnicity data for inclusion in an EEO-1 report and Mansfield Certification report. While the Firm may be required by law to file an EEO-1 report and the information you supply will help facilitate this process, your participation is entirely voluntary and the status of your application or your potential employment will not be affected by your decision to participate or to refrain from participating in this data collection process.
The firm also gathers data regarding veteran status and LGBTQ+, both of which are not required for EEO-1 reporting purposes, however data related to LGBTQ+ data is requested as part of the Mansfield Certification reporting. Your decision to provide the information is also entirely voluntary, and your candidacy will not be affected by your decision to participate or not.
