Forward Thinkers Embrace Diversity and Inclusion

At Polsinelli, we maintain a high-performing, inclusive organization where a diverse workforce can thrive personally and professionally. We also believe diversity is essential to providing the best possible service for our clients.

Core Values
The acceptance, pursuit and promotion of Diversity and Inclusion are core values of Polsinelli. These values inform, enlighten and shape the vision, thinking and activities that define our firm, allowing us to meet challenges and seize opportunities in a globally competitive and diverse marketplace.

We define Diversity to include people from various ethnic, religious, gender, sexual orientation, age, disability and socio-economic backgrounds that offer a mosaic of approaches, beliefs, experiences, perspectives and values. Our Diversity is critical to providing unique and creative solutions to our clients’ greatest challenges and to the benefit of those with whom we work, engage and interact.

We define Inclusion as the comprehensive coordinated and complete integration of all diverse persons across the various sectors of our firm as contributors, leaders and agents of change. Ours is a culture that promotes and invites openness, creativity and tolerance for bold thinking and creative ideas.

Our Diversity and Inclusion efforts have the support and are coordinated with our firm’s leadership and management teams, and the firm's Diversity initiatives are implemented under the direction of our Chief Diversity Officer with input from the firm’s Diversity Committee. We have adopted a four pillar approach to support realization of our core values and which accurately reflect our vision as we endeavor to build an intellectually vibrant workplace that allows all persons to succeed personally and professionally, while bringing the best possible service to our clients:
  1. Recruitment: Building a well-trained pipeline of diverse talent
  2. Relationship Building: Affinity Groups & Community Engagement
  3. Professional Development: Promotion and Achievement
  4. Knowledge Expansion: Speakers’ Series
