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.

Wikborg Rein /FN/UN We have set ambitious goals for gender equality and work strategically to recruit broader, preserve talents better and to secure a work environment where there is room for everyone, where all employees can thrive and succeed. Through these measures we contribute to UN's Sustainable Development Goal 5 – Gender Equality.
