Cambridge Associates is focused on ensuring that people with diverse backgrounds, ethnicities, and life experiences join, and then thrive in, our firm and our industry. We believe that pursuing increased diversity within our firm is essential for these 3 reasons:
- Our success depends on our talent, and to find the best talent we need to look at the broadest pool of candidates.
- There is conclusive evidence that surfacing diverse viewpoints leads to better decision making and better financial outcomes
- Our clients expect us to build a diverse talent pool for the reasons above, and because giving the opportunity to all is the right thing to do
CA is engaged in implementing a comprehensive diversity and inclusion strategy.
At the core of our work to build an inclusive culture are our employee resource groups. These groups have broad participation, and contribute significantly to the firm’s dynamic programming for their members and allies around the firm.
CA Mosaic: dedicated to representing ethnically diverse colleagues within the CA community, increasing firm-wide diversity and inclusion, building community, providing support, enhancing career development, and contributing to the personal development of our diverse staff
CA Pride: dedicated to representing LGBTQ+ employees, working to establish Cambridge Associates as a leader with regard to the workplace environment for and professional development of LGBTQ+ colleagues, and addressing issues affecting opportunity for members of the LGBTQ+ community
CA Women: works to cultivate an inclusive, equitable and supportive culture that empowers women and fosters connections and community both inside and outside of the firm to ensure women thrive personally and professionally at CA
CA’s Leadership, Partner group, and managers have made our D&I strategy a priority. From expanded training on unintended bias and managing sensitive conversations to a commitment to annual financial contributions to organizations committed to social justice and economic empowerment, this important work is top of mind.
We proactively engage throughout the year with women- and minority-related affinity groups and networks that help advance investment outcomes, create connections in the industry, and encourage people to consider careers in investing.
