May 21, 2021

Spencer Fane was recently selected for Missouri Lawyers Media (MLM)’s 2021 Diversity and Inclusion award. This honor acknowledges firms and individuals that have worked to improve diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) in the Missouri legal profession.

The firm was selected by a committee of Missouri attorneys through a rigorous deliberation process to identify honorees who drive meaningful change in the industry.

Elizabeth Wente, chair of the DEI committee at Spencer Fane, provided insight to MLM about the firm’s efforts, noting a recently implemented unconscious bias training.

“It’s a culture shift that’s been in the works for several years,” Elizabeth explained. “We want to build an organization where people are bringing their whole selves to work. There’s always room for improvement when it comes to diversity, equity and inclusion efforts.”
