At heart, being inclusive means everyone has a seat at the table. At Armstrong Teasdale, we define diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI) broadly and focus on helping professionals of all races, religions, national origins, gender identities, ethnicities, sexual orientations and physical abilities feel a sense of belonging. DEI are core values of the firm, and we recognize the richness they bring to our workplace.

More than policies and written goals, we value inclusion in practice, presenting opportunities for lawyers and business professionals to participate in engaging dialogue through resource groups, as well as through firmwide initiatives that challenge us and help us recruit, support and retain diverse professionals. From training and workshops to mentoring opportunities and social events, we are committed to promoting inclusivity within the legal profession. Such key initiatives are implemented from the top down, driven by firm leaders, and also include offering employee benefits such as flexible work arrangements, paid parental leave and DEI billable hours.

As part of our commitment to inclusion, we have a dedicated Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Department, which reports directly to the firm’s Executive Committee. Our Inclusion Committee also holds a significant role in the firm and reports to the Executive Committee on various activities and initiatives. Both of these initiatives enable us to continue holding ourselves accountable for this core value at the highest levels of firm management. We also distribute an annual inclusion report for further accountability.

We are committed to diversity within our client teams, ensuring that team leaders, supporting lawyers and business professionals are diverse in compliance with legal industry standards. Our clients consistently challenge us to align with diversity initiatives, and we take the mandate seriously. Bringing people with different experiences and opinions to the table enables us to better serve our clients.

The firm is also actively involved with various affinity groups, community and civic organizations that focus on driving diversity, equity and inclusion through various events and conferences across the country.

Resource Groups

Our working groups and resource groups are designed to drive various initiatives and respectful dialogue firmwide. The firm’s Inclusion Committee and Inclusion Workgroup implement internal programming focusing on the DEI Department’s core goals. Our resource groups provide a host of programming throughout the year to build professional strengths and break down barriers. Our resource groups also extend to the broader community, often involving initiatives with clients, professional contacts and other organizations in order to build and maintain a critical bridge.

Supplier Diversity

At Armstrong Teasdale, we believe that good corporate citizenship includes supporting supplier diversity efforts to create sustainable economic development in the communities where we live and work. We are actively seeking business relationships with minority-owned, women-owned and LGBTQ-owned businesses, and encourage inclusive suppliers to do business with us.

We celebrate Michael's life, ground ourselves in the importance of diversity, and assure other minorities have a chance to succeed in the legal profession.
