WILEF's Gold Standard Certification emphasizes the leadership roles achieved by equity women partners. Law firms with 300 or more practicing lawyers in the United States are eligible for the 2015 WILEF Gold Standard Certification if they successfully demonstrate that women represent a meaningful percentage of their equity partners, of their highest leadership positions, of their governance and compensation committees, and of their most highly compensated partners.

Christy Tosh Crider, chair of Baker Donelson's Women's Initiative and a shareholder in the Firm's Nashville office, said, "This certification is a recognition of Baker Donelson's commitment to creating an environment where female attorneys thrive. Women are represented at every leadership level in the Firm, from our President and Chief Operating Officer Jennifer Keller to the Firm's board of directors, office managing shareholders and practice group chairs. We're very proud to be recognized by WILEF among a select group of law firms from across the country that are focused on ensuring women are strongly represented in their leadership."
