As a firm, Miller Canfield has earned recognition for its inclusivity and support of diversity initiatives, both within the firm and in the legal community.

In 2021, Miller Canfield was recognized as a top firm for diversity in the American Lawyer Diversity Scorecard, and Miller Canfield Hiring Chair/Diversity and Professional Development Principal Michelle Crockett was shortlisted for the Diversity & Inclusion Lawyer of the Year Award by Chambers USA. In 2018, we became the first law firm to sponsor the Detroit Regional LGBT Chamber of Commerce and the only Michigan-headquartered firm to earn Mansfield Certification, which measures whether law firms have affirmatively considered women and attorneys of color for leadership and governance roles, equity partner promotions, and lateral positions. In 2016, Miller Canfield was one of 54 top law firms nationwide selected to participate in the Women in Law Hackathon, an innovative program to advance the careers of women in the legal profession. The firm is an "Honor Roll" member of the Michigan Roundtable for Diversity and Inclusion, and we have sponsored and presented the Outstanding Diversity Award for the Kalamazoo Chamber of Commerce.

In addition, we are the first law firm to partner with the Detroit Regional LGBT Chamber of Commerce, and were recognized by OutFront Kalamazoo for our support of the LGBTQ community
