Commitment to Diversity and Inclusion

Our strengths lie in our differences

As a member of the diverse Twin Cities and Greater Minnesota communities, Bassford Remele recognizes that our strengths lie in our multi-faceted backgrounds and experiences. This diversity statement reaffirms our longstanding commitment to diversity and appreciation of the range of perspectives that a diverse workplace provides. We are dedicated to attracting, retaining, and promoting attorneys and staff of different backgrounds. We encourage all employees to recognize the value of diversity in the workplace and are committed to welcoming differences in our employees because of race, religion, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, disability, familial status, and marital status.

Our pledge embraces the value of understanding and considering differences in backgrounds and approaches. As a law firm with local, national, and international clients, we appreciate that having lawyers and staff of diverse races, religions, ethnicities, cultures, genders, and socio-economic backgrounds contributes to a more well-rounded evaluation of legal issues and more effective representation of our clients.

Bassford Remele recognizes that a commitment to diversity requires more than a pledge. We are committed to a concerted effort to effectuate a change in the way law firms traditionally operate. At Bassford Remele, our leadership identifies, counsels, hires, and retains qualified diverse candidates. We have an active Diversity and Inclusion Committee comprised of Shareholders, Associates, and Administrative Professionals who work together with the common goal of advancing our commitment by discussing ideas, implementing specific programs, and ensuring we keep abreast of the latest diversity and inclusion developments. Our Diversity and Inclusion Committee seeks to:

  • Improve the experience of all members;
  • Increase diversity at all levels;
  • Promote successes in supporting diversity efforts, and identifying areas for improvement;
  • Facilitate the support and mentoring of diverse employees; and
  • Actively foster an environment of better communication and greater inclusion across all levels throughout our Firm.

In concert with our Diversity and Inclusion Committee, Bassford Remele, as a whole, takes pride in utilizing a multifaceted approach aimed at furthering a diverse and inclusive workplace, including:
