The DEI agenda is quite profound across the industry and targeted DEI initiatives are growing in private equity as the industry begins to address how its culture has historically impeded diversity.
A number of recent surveys have highlighted that talent management was the second strategic priority across firms of all sizes, and these priorities include increasing gender and ethnic minority representation.
Private equity holds a responsibility towards its portfolio companies and can play a catalytic role in closing economic gaps between men and women—while strengthening enterprise growth, job creation, and financial security.
This evening will explore best practice in driving long term transformation at the portfolio level and how diversity can and is a key driving force in value creation.
