Abénex 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 Abénex’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. Abénex signed in 2020 the France Invest Diversity Charter and is a member of Level 20.
Abénex 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.
