Equality and Diversity
The corporate legal industry has traditionally been conservative and not adequately able to mirror the diversity that exists in the society around us. A leading law firm such as Wikborg Rein make a difference with regards to this, and we will therefore work to drive the industry in the right direction.
It is necessary to secure our own long-term value creation, and for Wikborg Rein to better reflect the society we are a part of. There are many good reasons why this topic is important:
- We shall recruit the most talented people, regardless of their gender, age, ethnicity, religion, disability or sexual orientation.
- A new generation of clients expects more, and increased diversity is important in order to offer the best team tailored to the individual client's challenges and needs.
In collaboration with Mino.Jur, Wikborg Rein launched a mentoring scheme for students who want to learn more about the opportunities that exist after their studies: Mino.Mentor. Additionally, we have set ambitious goals for our work with gender equality and have a goal that we will have gender balanced partner appointments. Furthermore, we work strategically to recruit broader, preserve talents better and to secure a work environment where there is room for everyone, where everyone can thrive and succeed.
