Since its creation, Amadagana and Partners has been committed to placing individuals and their differences among its major assets for the benefit of the firm’s performance.

This commitment to diversity is part of our Corporate Social Responsibility.

We promote gender diversity. As a firm run by a woman, we understand and appreciate the challenges that women face in the job market, especially in the field of law, which is considered to be very masculine and competitive. We refuse and sanction any discriminatory behaviour towards our female employees, who make up more than half of our staff. We also reject any pay gap between men and women with equal skills and equal positions.

In Cameroun more than 200 ethnic groups live side by side. This ethnic diversity, which is one of the country’s strengths, is reflected in the firm’s staff. We promote diversity of ethnic backgrounds. We promote the representation of the diversity of society in all its differences and richness. We also promote racial diversity within our workforce, as our employees come from different countries. Thus, we implement every day the notion of “living together” at A&P. (r

We promote socio-cultural diversity. Within the Firm, all social classes rub shoulders. We vary our sources of recruitment to seek and acquire talent from all social strata. The Firm gives itself the best possible chance to retain skills and attract people, beyond any categorization. It is a strategy based on rational economic ethics.

In a global way, we promote the application of the principle of non-discrimination in all its forms in all the Firm’s management and decision-making acts, and in particular in all stages of human resources management. A&P builds and develops a working environment where everyone, regardless of their ethnic origin, social background, religion, gender, age or disability, feels valued. By creating an atmosphere conducive to the development and fulfilment of all employees, the entire firm benefits.
