Diversity, Equity, & Inclusion

Furthering our Commitment to Diversity

We believe diversity of thought, experience, and background is an important component of differentiated decision-making and creative investing. For the past decade, we have taken steps to both increase the diversity of our global colleagues and to create an inclusive culture where all colleagues’ contributions and perspectives are both valued and are additive to the workplace experience. We recognize there is continued work to be done for our industry, our own workforce, and those of our portfolio companies to look more like the societies in which we live and work.
