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 address diversity issues. We recognize there is much work to be done in order for our industry, workforce, and those of our portfolio companies to look more like the societies in which we live and work.
Warburg Pincus Council for Diversity, Equity, & Inclusion (DE&I)
We formed the inaugural Warburg Pincus Council for Diversity, Equity, & Inclusion in 2020 to formalize our efforts to actively address issues of access and representation in our firm, in our business, and in our portfolio companies. The council is co-led by our CEO, Chip Kaye, and Chairman, Tim Geithner. It is chaired by Andrew Park, Head of our Healthcare Technology practice, and comprises a diverse group of colleagues who span all levels of seniority, functional expertise, and tenure at the firm.
