For the 12th year, Working Mother has named Sidley as one of the “Best Law Firms for Women.” This annual list highlights law firms’ efforts and successes in recruiting, retaining, and promoting women lawyers. Commenting on the 2020 rankings, Subha Barry, president of Working Mother Media, noted, “Law firms on this year’s list were better prepared to respond to the effects of the pandemic because of their continued support of flextime and remote work for working parents and caregivers.” Sidley was also designated a Hall of Fame honoree for its inclusion on the annual list for more than a decade. On September 22, 2020, Sidley was recognized during the “Best Law Firms for Women” virtual awards ceremony, which featured a number of presentations on topics relevant to working mothers. Maria Melendez, Sidley’s chief diversity officer, spoke on the panel, “Creating Allies – Strategies from the Best of the Best,” moderated by Subha Barry.
