Bentley Systems, Incorporated, the infrastructure engineering software company, today (June 14) announced that its Vice President and Chief Compliance Officer Angela Curry has been named In-house Lawyer of the Year in the Chambers and Partners Diversity and Inclusion Awards: North America 2022.
 
These awards celebrate the fantastic achievements of firms, companies, and individuals who are furthering the advancement of diversity and inclusion across the US and Canada, said a statement from Bentley. 
 
Curry’s accomplishments in her role at Bentley include initiating the review of the company’s professional and internship programs, resulting in broadening the scope and revising Bentley’s hiring process to promote diversity within the organization. 
 
She also supports the company’s important education initiatives including partnering with historically Black colleges and universities, providing no-cost engineering software and mentorship for students working on senior engineering projects. 
 
This initiative demonstrates the enormous commitment Curry and others at Bentley have in laying the groundwork for diverse workforces in the future, it stated. 
 
"Since becoming our chief compliance officer and stepping up as head of diversity, equity, and inclusion at Bentley, Curry has endeavored to create a welcoming and inclusive workplace for all of our employees," remarked David Shaman, Bentley’s chief legal officer. 
 
"For the past two years, she has pursued a carefully structured and wide-reaching strategy that has revolutionized Bentley’s diversity and inclusion provision worldwide," she added.
 
Curry also supports Bentley’s Inclusion, Diversity, and Equity Alliance (IDEA), a platform for educating colleagues on how to identify racism, discrimination, and bias in the workplace. Moreover, she has implemented rigorous diversity, equity, and inclusion training within the company. 
 
As chief compliance officer, she is responsible for managing Bentley’s regulatory compliance programs that cover privacy and data protection, export controls and trade compliance, and compliance and ethics. 
 
As a highly experienced compliance professional, Curry understands that embedding core diversity, equity, and inclusion principles from the top to the bottom of an organization is not only fair and equitable, but also sound corporate governance.
