Our new report on our diverse members and allies’ experiences offers a nuanced understanding of the perspectives of Black and brown individuals within the hedge fund and financial services industries in today’s polarized environment. A growing body of research shows that inclusive team cultures don't just benefit individuals; they enhance team dynamics, foster innovation, and drive superior business results. Despite the hedge fund and financial services industries having voiced a strong commitment to increasing diversity, our findings indicate that the results of most DEI efforts have not been effective in making real progress in building diverse teams or inclusive cultures.

Explore our report to learn more about our findings and the actionable recommendations we propose for industry players.
