Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion

Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion

Since Maslon's inception in 1956, the founders made respecting and fostering diversity, equity, inclusion, and community involvement an expected practice within the firm—principles which the firm has proudly carried forward. Along with our commitment to providing exemplary legal services, we believe strongly that a diverse and inclusive workplace is an essential part of serving both our clients and the broader community.

The firm has a Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Committee charged with leading and executing this key priority. Made up of both attorneys and staff, the committee is specifically tasked with promoting diversity, equity, and inclusion at Maslon, in the legal profession, and in the community through leadership, active participation in, and support of a broad range of initiatives.

In furtherance of those goals, Maslon is currently pursuing Mansfield Rule certification. During the certification process, Maslon will be evaluated for 18 months on its commitment to diversity, as demonstrated by its consideration of at least 30% women, lawyers of color, LGBTQ+ lawyers, and lawyers with disabilities for leadership and governance roles, equity partner promotions, formal client pitch opportunities, and senior lateral positions. The certification is a program administered by Diversity Lab, an organization that promotes innovative ideas and solutions to boost diversity and inclusion in the legal field. Mansfield Rule certification is another important component of our ongoing efforts to create more inclusive workplaces, recruit year-round for diverse candidates, and support and advance diverse lawyers.

Maslon also proudly participates as members of the below impactful organizations created to advance diversity in the profession:

Twin Cities Diversity in Practice: Maslon is a member of Twin Cities Diversity in Practice, a nonprofit association comprised of the leading Twin Cities legal employers with the vision to create a vibrant and inclusive legal community and mission to strengthen the efforts of member organizations to attract, recruit, advance, and retain attorneys of color.

Leadership Council on Legal Diversity (LCLD): Maslon is a member of the Leadership Council on Legal Diversity, an organization of more than 300 corporate chief legal officers and law firm managing partners—the leadership of the profession—who have dedicated themselves to creating a truly diverse U.S. legal profession.
