Diversity

Husch Blackwell is committed to recruiting, developing, retaining, and promoting talented attorneys and staff. We believe diversity encompasses a variety of characteristics, including race, national origin, religion, gender, sexual orientation, gender identity, age, education, and family and marital status.
 

Our environment is essential to both the quality of our client service and the personal satisfaction of our lawyers and staff.
 

Our efforts have been recognized both nationally and locally in promoting diversity. We received a top rating of 100 percent in the Corporate Equality Index, the Human Rights Campaign Foundation, the Equal Justice Award, Legal Services of Eastern Missouri, and named one of the Top 100 Law Firms for Women by MultiCultural Law Magazine.
 

Minority and female partners hold senior leadership positions in management, which fully supports the wide variety of initiatives coordinated by our firm’s Diversity Committee.
 

We are actively involved in promoting diversity within the legal profession. Our firm endorsed the diversity commitment and action plans of our local bar associations.
 

Diversity and inclusiveness make us a stronger firm and better able to understand our clients’ needs. We are committed to pursue, promote and enhance diversity at Husch Blackwell.
