Leadership Council on Legal Diversity Presents Compass Award to Armstrong Teasdale
Armstrong Teasdale, a law firm with offices across the United States, proudly announces that it has earned a Compass Award from the Leadership Council on Legal Diversity (LCLD). An LCLD Member Firm, Armstrong Teasdale earned the award by actively participating in various LCLD programs designed to build a more open and diverse legal profession.
The firm was recognized at the Ninth Annual LCLD Membership Meeting on Oct. 16 in Washington, D.C.
“While our inclusion work is ongoing, we are proud of our results and efforts to-date,” said Managing Partner John Beulick. “Inclusion is extremely important to us, to our clients, and to the future of the legal profession. We’re committed to creating and sustaining a culture of inclusion through ongoing initiatives from recruiting to community involvement.”
Members of the firm who are currently participating in LCLD programs include Financial and Real Estate Services Partner Hillary Bean, who was previously selected for the 2018 Fellow program. Bean, who is also Director of Armstrong Teasdale’s Women’s Inclusion Network, is participating by attending conferences, training in the fine points of legal practice, peer-group projects to foster collaboration and build relationships, and extensive contact with LCLD’s top leadership, including the managing partners and general counsel who host the Fellows for Learning Experiences and Leadership Lunches.
In addition, Armstrong Teasdale actively participates in more than 10 separate efforts aimed at attracting diverse talent, one of which is the LCLD Pipeline program. The program matches attorney mentors with 1L students at schools in St. Louis and Kansas City, Missouri, and Denver, Colorado.
