We have signed up to the Diversity Project to show our commitment to improving all aspects of diversity within the investment management industry. In 2010, Henderson Global Investors launched a Trainee Programme designed to reduce the barriers of entry into investment management and allow a more diverse group of individuals to enter the industry.
Following the success of the Trainee Programme, in 2013 the initiative was rolled out to other firms as Investment 2020.
In 2016, the firm’s focus within EDI was on improving the global mind-set and improving gender diversity at all levels across the firm. We have worked closely with recruitment agencies and our training providers to help us deliver results in these areas.
We continue to seek ways to improve our EDI initiatives, and develop and implement new ideas to ensure an inclusive culture and diverse workforce. We hope that by being part of the Diversity Project we can both learn and share ideas with other firms across the industry.
