Diverse Culture & Experiences
At Sapientia, we don’t spend time talking about diversity or forming committees to focus on it. We live it. Our minority-owned, multi-ethnic multi-cultural professional corporation includes attorneys with African American, Asian American, Caucasian, Latino and Native American roots. We are a proud member of the Midwest Minority Supplier Development Council (MMSDC), and we have the distinction of being certified as a “Minority Business Enterprise” by the MMSDC. We are also a member of Twin Cities Diversity in Practice.
Sapientia was vetted and admitted into the prestigious National Association of Minority and Women Owned Law Firm (NAMWOLF) in 2014. NAMWOLF is a trade association comprised of a select group of preeminent minority and women owned law firms and other interested corporations throughout the U.S. Among other things, law firm membership into NAMWOLF requires national certification regarding ownership, management, and control status, favorable corporate client references by Fortune 500 companies, excellence in quality of law practiced, Martindale-Hubbell AV® Preeminent Peer Review ratings, practice liability insurance, more than three attorneys, and adherence to NAMWOLF’s core values. In September 2018, Sapientia was honored as NAMWOLF’s “2018 MVP Law Firm” based on its contributions to NAMWOLF and its members, as well as its contributions and promotion of diversity and inclusion in the legal profession. Sapientia was recently honored with the Diversity & Inclusion 2019 Award from Minnesota Lawyer.
Our professional experiences are equally as diverse. Whether we’ve practiced law as solo practitioners, big firm attorneys, or in-house counsel, we all share a common vision and commitment to:
- Supporting and broadening diversity within our group.
- Implementing policies and strategies that support women and minorities in the workplace.
Our strength lies in our differences. We understand this and we honor it.
