Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion
Create Opportunity for All
Our Diversity, Equity and Inclusion commitment is a core part of our Corporate Social Responsibility, focused on ensuring that people with diverse backgrounds, ethnicities, and life experiences join, and then thrive, in our firm and our industry.
Our DEI strategy is built on four key pillars
Build a more diverse firm
At Cambridge Associates, we are working to build a more diverse workforce. Not only because the best talent is found in the broadest pool of candidates, or because of conclusive evidence that diverse teams lead to better outcomes—but also because it is simply the right thing to do.

Invest more capital with diverse managers
We use our standing in the industry to promote the investment of capital in an equitable manner, including to best-in-class underrepresented managers who may not otherwise get the opportunity they deserve.
Elevate a more equitable and inclusive culture
Our goal at Cambridge Associates is to create an environment in which our colleagues can do their best work by being their best selves. We aim to support every employee, encourage dialogue, and empower our colleagues to act to create the community we want.
Our four Employee Resource Groups work together to advance a culture of inclusivity at Cambridge Associates
CA Allies educates and advocates on behalf of a broad spectrum of identities and experiences. The group affirms the experiences and stories of others, asks questions to understand how to best support others, and acts to dismantle systemic barriers to workplace and societal equity.
Core to the mission of CA Pride is the belief that we all deserve equal rights, protections, and privileges, particularly historically marginalized groups like the LGBTQ+ community. Our work advocates for community within our walls, industry, and global landscape, harkening back to the history of the LGBTQ+ rights movement and forward to its future.
CA Mosaic champions the need for diversity, understanding that bringing together cultures, backgrounds, and differences makes us a stronger firm. But to achieve these goals, we must build a sense of belonging, where all voices are heard and honored, to create the positive change needed within the firm and the industry.
CA Women strives to create a more equitable culture in both our firm and our industry by bringing more voices and perspectives to the table. By empowering women and underrepresented communities, we can create better leaders and innovators for today and tomorrow.
Lead a more diverse, equitable, and inclusive industry
We proactively engage with external networks and affinity groups to raise diverse representation in the industry, help advance investment outcomes, and increase opportunity for women and members of underrepresented communities in investing.
Some key industry partnerships include:
Our Global Diversity Council
At CA, we have both a genuine commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion and also a deep understanding of the magnitude of the challenge. Working in DEI for more than a decade, I know that progress in this area requires a dedication to excellence, a willingness to learn, and people who are at the table and ready to go.
