Diversity & Inclusion

An open, diverse, safe and inclusive environment

We believe that everyone working at AKD will only get the best out of themselves if they are allowed to be themselves. That is why we are an equal opportunity employer and are committed to providing an open, diverse, safe and inclusive environment. AKD is a place where people, regardless of race, religion, gender, gender expression, age, national origin, disability, marital status or sexual orientation, can thrive and reach their full potential. AKD has joined nearly 100 leading companies and 35 other law firms in subscribing to the Equal in Legal Diversity & Inclusion Statement. AKD is also a friend of Stichting FORWARD, whose mission is to promote the acceptance, validation and visibility of LGBTQ+ within the Dutch legal profession. All of our lawyers, tax advisers, civil-law notaries and support staff have received inclusive leadership and unconscious bias training, helping to propagate diversity as part of our daily routine. After all, we believe it is the responsibility of every AKD colleague to contribute to the open, diverse, safe and inclusive working environment we provide.
