Inclusion and Diversity Policy
pdf, 1.3 MB
At Van Lanschot Kempen we preserve and create wealth for our clients and for society in a sustainable way. Our commitment to inclusion and diversity goes hand in hand with our ambition to contribute to a sustainable and more inclusive world. We firmly believe that to do so effectively we need to foster an inclusive workplace where everyone’s unique contributions are valued and where we optimise our combined talents.
Our policy, which you can download below, lays out our vision on inclusion and diversity, while simultaneously outlining the concrete steps that we are committed to taking in order to make this vision a reality. The policy aims to provide a solid foundation on which we can build over the years to come.
We have identified five pillars that will enable us to continuously work on and realise our ambition.

An inclusive and diverse workplace will only be realised when leadership is truly committed to not just talking the talk, but also walking the walk.
We want to build the best teams possible and recognise that in order to do so, we need to attract and hire a more diverse pool of candidates. We believe that different profiles add new perspectives to our company and we are committed to putting these talents on the right spot, and retaining them. We are motivated to ensure equality of opportunity and support the growth of our employees by providing opportunities for development.
To give space to our employees to express their personal identities and to meet their individual needs we are committed to offering flexible and inclusive labour and working conditions, thereby stimulating a greater sense of belonging for all of our colleagues.
We are intrinsically motivated to achieve equal pay for equal work. We take action to level the playing field, by removing the less visible barriers that (prospective) colleagues encounter.
To foster an inclusive workspace we need to ensure that we hear those who experience inappropriate behaviour, that we promote an open dialogue and that we welcome the expertise of others.
