Global law firm Bryan Cave Leighton Paisner (BCLP) recently signed the Germany Charta der Vierfalt (Charter of Diversity) on Aug. 14. The Charter of Diversity is an employer initiative committed to promoting the recognition, appreciation and inclusion of diversity in the workplace in Germany and to creating a work environment free of prejudice.

BCLP is committed to clear diversity and inclusion (D&I) goals and is engaged in a number of programs and campaigns on this important issue. The firm secured second place this year in the Stonewall Workplace Equality Index (WEI), the UK's leading LGBT ranking and charity. BCLP works to create an environment in which all employees feel valued, motivated and able to be themselves.

"By signing the charter, we also want to send a clear message of the firm’s commitment to diversity in Germany," says Boris Strauch, Frankfurt partner and a member of BCLP's Global D&I Advisory Board. "A workplace that is unprejudiced and diverse is a fundamental value for BCLP. Therefore, joining the Charter of Diversity was a natural step."

"Bryan Cave Leighton Paisner's D&I strategy is fully supported by the firm's management," says Roland Fabian, managing partner of BCLP in Germany, confirming the firm's commitment. "Our employees know that we see a heterogeneous team with diverse influences as an absolute asset to our firm and our work. But also new talents should recognize Bryan Cave Leighton Paisner as an open employer. We are delighted that, by signing the Charter of Diversity, we are now making a public statement about the philosophy that has always characterized our team.”
