Diversity and inclusion is an integral part of our long-term growth that adds richness to our culture and value to our community. Diversity and inclusion includes visible differences such as age, gender, ethnicity and physical attributes, as well as underlying differences such as thinking styles, religion, nationality, sexual orientation, and education.
At Russell Investments, we believe in supporting diverse groups, events, and ideas. The reason we do this is simple. By valuing diversity and inclusion, we are better able to attract the brightest talent, increase competitiveness, and maintain relevance in our ever-changing global landscape.
Russell Investments has created a Diversity and Inclusion Committee in the EMEA region to specifically set and drive the agenda for diversity and inclusion in the region, while working in partnership with the global diversity and inclusion efforts at Russell Investments. The committee’s objectives are as follows:
- Promote recruitment and retention practices that focus on tapping into top talent across diverse constituency groups.
- Endorse suitable education, training, development and mentoring possibilities for our diverse group of associates.
- Promote a diverse and inclusive work environment where all associates feel respected and valued.
- Encourage community involvement related to the promotion of diversity and inclusion.
The Diversity and Inclusion Committee supports associates by strengthening leadership competencies, developing new skills, providing opportunities for networking and building relationships across Russell Investments, and providing unique cultural perspectives on various issues.
