As an investment manager entrusted with $4.14 trillion* and as an employer of 2,500 talented people across the globe, we understand the special responsibility we have to our clients and employees to support diversity at every level of our business.
We’re proud of receiving an 100% from the Human Rights Campaign’s Corporate Equality Index and an 100% on the Disability Equality Index, among many other accolades – but we are not stopping there. We’ve made a commitment to measure and improve diversity throughout our organization.
In our 2019 Corporate Social Responsibility report, we have further expanded on our efforts to address racism and inequality among other topics. We have disclosed our EEO-1 survey data, which outlines our employee data by race/ethnicity, gender and job category.
