17 Oct 2018
Sascha Kuhn, partner in the Dusseldorf office of international law firm Simmons & Simmons has been named one of the Top 100 Out Executives 2018. The list, which was published 11 October 2018 (Coming Out Day), saw Sascha ranked 11th in the list of 100 outlined executives. The initiative was initiated by Uhlala GmbH, the organizer of the Sticks & Stones Career Fair and the charitable foundation PrOutatWork which promotes the visibility of LGBT + role models in business, administration and society.
Country head of Simmons & Simmons in Germany Dr Bernulph von Crailsheim commented: “We are very happy and congratulate Sascha Kuhn, who is also very much involved in diversity at Simmons & Simmons. Recently, our law firm has also initiated a diversity survey on age, origin, sexual orientation, disability and the reconciliation of family and work. The data has been collected in the last few weeks and we are currently evaluating and looking forward to the results. We will then publish these in a diversity briefing.”
Sascha Kuhn added: “Many LGBTI persons still encounter discrimination at their work. A significant percentage of lesbian or gay employees are therefore hiding their own sexual identity at the workplace. Against this background visibility in a professional context is an important issue to me and I am delighted to see many executives from various sectors on the OUT 100 Executives list, who share this goal in their daily working life.”
