Partner Amy Conway Selected as Minnesota Lawyer D&I Award Honoree
Stinson LLP is excited to announce that Partner Amy Conway is recognized as a 2022 Diversity and Inclusion Award honoree by Minnesota Lawyer. Conway was chosen for her significant D&I work at the firm and in the greater Twin Cities community.
Conway led the firm's Minneapolis Recruiting Committee from 2018-2021 and was a key advocate for increasing the diversity of the firm's workforce. She has earned a reputation for being a vital guide on critical diversity and inclusion issues facing employers in Minnesota and across the country. In the wake of the #MeToo and racial justice movements, Conway developed and implemented anti-harassment training programs for clients to ensure they had tangible resources and tips to help make a positive impact on company culture. She provides guidance to managers when it comes to working with employees reporting harassment claims and developing policies surrounding such issues, and leads investigations into sensitive employee complaints for clients in industries such as professional services, housing, manufacturing, health care, brewing and construction.
Conway also promotes D&I in her volunteer work in the community. Currently co-chair of the firm's Pro Bono committee, Conway has received the Minnesota State Bar Association's North Star Lawyer recognition for each year of her practice which distinguishes attorneys who volunteer 50 hours or more of pro bono services to low-income clients. She serves on the Board of Directors for the Children's Law Center of Minnesota (CLC) where she currently leads its Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) Working Group. She has served as a volunteer with the organization since she was a law student. Throughout her time with the CLC, she has represented eight children as they navigate challenging situations in the legal and foster care systems. Conway also volunteers with the firm's Deinard Legal Clinic, handling difficult divorces for indigent women, often in situations where her client was a victim of domestic violence.
Conway is a labor and employment in the firm's Minneapolis office. Clients turn to her for employment best practices and to manage risks inherent to navigating all facets of the employment relationship. She advises businesses of all sizes on employment law issues. Conway was recently recognized as a 2022 Notable Partner in Law by Twin Cities Business Journal.
Conway and her fellow honorees will be recognized during a celebration on October 5, 2022.
