At Polsinelli, diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) is part of our DNA. It is who we are, not what we do. 

We value different perspectives, backgrounds and experiences that bring fresh ideas to continually accelerate our efforts and promote a diverse and inclusive workplace. To these ends, we encourage attorneys and staff from every corner of the firm to engage in DEI. 

While most every law firm touts its DEI efforts, at Polsinelli we take pride in our diversity results, not just our intentions.  We ask the hard questions and seek answers through novel and often counterintuitive approaches.  Doing so has resulted in changing our compensation matrix, exploring new methods for mentoring and training and rethinking how we recruit and retain diverse talent.  By our willingness to deviate from the mainstream, we have and will continue to provide attorneys and staff with opportunities that will enable she, he or they to become their best professional self.

To evaluate our progress, we use data to improve the how, when and where to recruit both new and experienced attorneys, to assemble diverse pitch and client service teams, and to advance our attorneys’ careers to and through the partnership ranks.  By analyzing our intentionally gathered data, we minimize implicit biases and ensure that a diverse team of decision-makers are guiding and advancing DEI every day and in every way. 

Polsinelli’s goal is for every individual to feel supported regardless of who they are or what position they hold. We are not trying to create a homogenous workplace.  Rather, we are creating an environment where every employee retains their unique character and persona in order to contribute to the greater team. Our different perspectives, backgrounds and experiences heighten our ability to service both our internal and external clients.  We do this because that’s what a law firm should be.
