How Redington successfully embedded diversity and inclusion
Mitesh and Lee share their experiences, learning and thoughts on improving diversity and inclusion (D&I) and are keen to ensure an industry-wide dialogue with others in the asset management industry to share what has/has not worked; ‘so that we don’t all keep reinventing the wheel’.
It takes time to deliver results, but people are key in all businesses, especially asset management, so it is important to take this time, which Redington are doing via concentrated efforts across a few diversity characteristics.
Knowing that D&I makes good business sense, as well as being the right thing to do, and at the same time recognising that there were too few women in exec/leadership roles in Redington’s team of 75 then (150 now); three years ago, Chief Executive Officer, Mitesh Sheth, made a conscious decision that things needed to change. The result was the start of Redington’s top down D&I initiative.
