Diversity, Equity & Inclusion

Collaboration driven by diverse perspectives.

At Husch Blackwell, we believe the diverse dimensions of our attorneys, professionals and staff assist in leading our clients forward. As a team, we are unified by our enthusiasm for client success.

Inclusion is an important value of how we do business and an integral part of our outreach efforts, operations and strategic plans, including a supplier diversity initiative. In concert with Husch Blackwell’s written diversity policy, more than 50 diversity council and committee members set goals, which are executed by the highest levels of firm leadership, including the firm’s chairman, chief executive and executive board.

We are committed to recruiting, developing, retaining and promoting talented lawyers and staff with diverse backgrounds and experiences across 18 U.S. offices in order to provide clients with the leadership, personal attention and integrity they deserve.

At Husch Blackwell, diversity encompasses a variety of characteristics, lifestyles and perspectives; including race, ethnicity, national origin, religion, gender, sexual orientation, gender identity, age, education, veteran status, disability, socio-economic status, family and marital status. We firmly believe that our inclusive environment is essential to both the quality of our client service and the personal satisfaction of our lawyers and staff. The result of our commitment is a team of lawyers and staff who are diverse as individuals but unified by our enthusiasm for serving our clients through the practice of law in our communities.

Testimonials Tricia "TJ" Jackson, Associate, Austin

"The DE&I culture at Husch Blackwell means acknowledging the unique and inherent challenges that diverse attorneys and employees face, and then taking intentional steps, not only to mitigate those challenges as they apply in the workplace, but also closing the gap in representation by advancing diverse individuals into the highest levels of leadership. TJ will moderate the inaugural session of our DE&I Speaker Series.

Testimonials Catarina Colón, Associate, Milwaukee

"The responsibility of ensuring that Husch Blackwell is a diverse and inclusive workplace falls on all of us, not just our colleagues of color and firm leadership. Learning about DE&I is a continuous process, consisting of both education and action. While HB Communities of Change is a great place to start, I encourage all HB attorneys and staff to continue to do your research, recognize your privilege, fight racial injustice, and become better allies for your friends and colleagues." Catarina will moderate the second session of our DE&I speaker series.
