Our recruiting policies are intended to ensure women and minority lateral attorney candidates are properly considered for all Greensfelder career opportunities. Two key policies were adopted in recent years to boost those efforts:

Along with these efforts, the firm has made minority officer recruiting a priority. In recent years, the firm elected its first African-American and Hispanic shareholders. The recruiting policies also have helped increase the ranks of women: One in every four officers and 70 percent of associates are women.

Outside the firm, Greensfelder played an instrumental role in launching the first citywide St. Louis Diversity Job Fair, an event it has continued to help coordinate and sponsor since its 2008 inception. The firm also participates in the Diversity Clerkship Program, established to help first-year law students from groups traditionally underrepresented in the St. Louis legal community obtain employment. Greensfelder regularly hires a diverse group of law students through the job fair and DCP programs for its summer associate program, frequently extending offers of permanent employment to the participants.
