Abenex signs L’Autre Cercle’s LGBT+ Charter

Abenex has signed L’Autre Cercle’s LGBT+ Charter, further reinforcing its commitment to promote diversity and inclusion within the private equity industry. L’Autre Cerle is a leading French inclusion advocate of LGBT+ people in the workplace, and by signing its Charter, companies commit to:

– Creating an inclusive environment for LGBT+ employees

– Maintaining a strict equality of rights for all employees regardless of their sexual orientation or gender identity

– Supporting employees who become victims of discriminatory acts or comments

– Measuring progress and share best practices to improve the overall workplace environment

This commitment is fully aligned with Abenex’s longstanding D&I policy. The company also recently joined OutInvestors, an organization that was founded with the mission to make the direct investing industry more welcoming for LGBT+ individuals. Abenex signed in 2020 the France Invest Diversity Charter and is a member of Level 20.

Abenex has been certified B-Corp in 2022, further endorsing its longstanding commitment to positive investing and sustainability, a pioneer move for a buy-out fund.
