Ameren Names Armstrong Teasdale Best in Class for Diversity and Inclusion
Armstrong Teasdale has earned a 2016 Best in Class Diversity and Inclusion award from client, Ameren. By selecting the firm, Ameren said it is recognizing AT for “outstanding diversity and inclusion efforts, including the services that you provide to Ameren, the work within your own firm and your contributions to the community at large.”
The award was presented Nov. 30 and was accepted by Employment and Labor partner Jovita Foster, who chairs the firm’s Diversity and Inclusion Committee. The recognition adds to the firm’s diversity-focused accomplishments in the past year, which included receiving a perfect score on the 2017 HRC Corporate Equality Index.
In accepting the award, Jovita said that Armstrong Teasdale’s efforts to create and foster a diverse work environment are not only the right thing to do, but also helps the firm attract and retain top talent.
