Our Commitment to Diversity

HSPRD promotes a diverse, inclusive work environment, understanding that diversity creates a productive workplace and creates value for its clients who appreciate and expect their legal team to reflect the diversity of their own organizations and communities. Through diversity, not only do we enhance our ability to provide clients with innovative thinking and insightful solutions, but we also create a vibrant and exciting workplace.

We continually strive to improve diversity in every aspect of our workplace. Our commitment to diversity is not only measured by the make-up of our professionals, but also by the encouragement and support we give all of our professionals to do great work and achieve individual success both inside the firm and in our community.

Our firm expresses its encouragement and support of our diverse workforce in the programs and benefits we offer our employees. Among other things, HSPRD offers flex-time schedules and part-time employment for attorneys at both the partner and associate level and insurance benefits to domestic partners of firm employees.

In addition to internal policies, HSPRD supports organizations addressing issues of diversity within our communities, including the Illinois Coalition for Immigration and Refugee Rights, Heartland Alliance, MALDEF, and Women Employed.
