We're proud to announce that we’ve been partnering with Fragomen since 2016! Thank you for supporting AWE's mission to create more diversity in corporate America. Together we're increasing the number of women in corporate leadership positions and on boards to improve the global economy.
Fragomen is an international immigration firm headquartered in New York and established in 1951. They specialize in providing a range of immigration law services to corporate and individual clients, and are recognized as the world's largest firm that focuses its practice solely on global immigration law.
Fragomen has a long history of promoting women and ethnic minorities to prominent positions within the firm’s leadership. In the U.S., more than seventy-five percent of Fragomen’s employees are women and twenty-five percent are minorities. The American Lawyer ranks Fragomen’s U.S. practice as one of the top five law firms for ethnic diversity since 2012. In 2015, Law360 ranked Fragomen second amongst the top 100 firms for female attorneys in the U.S. based on the percentage of attorneys and partners that are women, and third among the best law firms for female partners. Law360 also ranked Fragomen second amongst the top 100 firms for minority attorneys, based on the firm’s minority representation at the partner level, non-partner levels, and total number of minority attorneys (2015).
“Throughout Fragomen, we have cultivated an employee population that is as richly diverse as are our clients—and the countries that they are coming from and going to. By embracing our differences, our employees enjoy a vibrant, creative work environment and gain insight into other cultures and life experiences. Our employees’ diversity gives us a heightened understanding of our clients’ needs which manifests in our effective immigration solutions.”
