How Many Firms Will Follow Cravath’s Lead In Naming A Woman As Chair?

In June, Cravath announced that it would bump first year associate salaries up to $180k, and many firms followed.  In July, Cravath announced that a woman will chair Cravath for the first time in the firm’s history.  Given that her addition will make just four of the top 200 firms lead by women, I hope that other firms are as eager to follow suit.  http://www.nytimes.com/2016/07/14/business/dealbook/faiza-saeed-to-become-first-woman-to-lead-cravath-swaine-moore.html?_r=0
