At Wolf Theiss, we believe that employing a diverse workforce makes us a more effective firm which is better able to support the success of our clients. A diverse workforce benefits from a wide variety of perspectives and is better able to understand the complexities of the global marketplace. We have adopted a mandate for diversity and strive to be an inclusive workplace which is a leader in the business community and profession.
Initiatives and projects – gender diversity
Our continuous support of women in the legal profession has earned us the "European Women in Business Law Award" multiple times in several countries.
Our awarded projects include our "Step Up Equal Opportunities" initiative, by way of which we help to promote career development and work-life balance. As part of this initiative, we were the only Austrian law firm participating in the "WoMentoring" project.
In Poland we have supported female entrepreneurship through partnership with the Women's Entrepreneurship Foundation (Fundacja Przedsiębiorczości Kobiet) and Black Swan Fund. Our activities have included conferences on investments in start-up companies and establishing new businesses, as well networking events in our Warsaw office for women investors.
