Schellenberg Wittmer Celebrates International Women's Day 2021

08.03.2021

We are proud to honour International Women's Day (IWD) 2021 and celebrate it together with Schellenberg Wittmer's 20 years / 20 initiatives campaign.

Recognizing our wonderfully diverse team and the remarkable women we work with, the firm participates in the IWD's theme of #ChooseToChallenge. In light of this global challenge, we have come together to challenge and call out gender and diversity bias and inequality via volunteered pledges that choose to foster a more inclusive world, - not only today, but everyday anew.

In support of our commitment towards overcoming gender bias and inequality, this year, our firm is additionally proud to support Swiss non-profit organization #FRAUENARBEIT, which advocates the professional advancement of young women across all business sectors. The aim of the organization is to bring young women across Switzerland together with role models who can help mentor and coach women with an objective of career building and networking.

Schellenberg Wittmer is also pleased to continue its partnership in 2021 with the Women in White Collar Crime Defense Association (WWCDA), in which litigation co-head Clara Poglia is the Swiss Chapter Leader. The WWCDA promotes diversity in the legal profession, organizes business activities to facilitate networking and business development opportunities for women in the practice. The association provides educational programming focused on the defense of government enforcement actions and internal investigations, compliance and ethics issues.

A consecutive winner at Euromoney's prestigious Women in Business Law European Awards – Schellenberg Wittmer has been awarded in 2018-2020, for our commitment in promoting diversity within the workforce as part of the firms key values, contributing to our on-going success, strategy and vision.
