Cambridge Associates Awarded Bronze Among Stonewall’s Top LGBTQ+ Global Employers
LONDON, 2 November 2023 – Global investment firm Cambridge Associates was awarded Bronze on Stonewall’s Top Global Employers 2023 list for its commitment to inclusion of lesbian, gay, bi and trans people in the workplace.
As a leader in providing portfolio management services to institutions and families across the globe, Cambridge Associates aims to lead by example and believes that the firm’s actions can lead to greater impact on society and in the communities in which it operates. Through hard work and commitment to inclusion via its LGBTQ+ employee resource group, CA Pride, Cambridge Associates is proud of implementing inspiring changes to the firm’s policies and creating environments tailored to each region around the globe that results in a true sense of belonging for all. Progress on this work is not linear, nor is it ever complete. The firm’s dedication to DEI is an ongoing commitment and a global effort.
“We know employees who feel valued for their differences stay at their jobs longer and are nearly five times more likely to perform at their best. Stonewall’s designation has significant meaning, not only because it reflects the work we have done to create a safe, inclusive and supportive space for our LGBTQ+ colleagues, but because it says to the global communities where we work that we want the best and most diverse talent to make their home here at Cambridge Associates,” said Melinda Wright, Global Head of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI).
For the last twenty years, Stonewall, the world’s second-largest LGBTQ+ charity, has been supporting employers to create welcoming workplaces for lesbian, gay, bi, trans people. Stonewall’s Global Workplace Equality Index provides organisations the opportunity to examine their policies and practices, celebrate successful initiatives, and share their important inclusion work as they lead the way. The full list this year can be found on the Stonewall website.
“We heartily congratulate Cambridge Associates. This award reflects the incredible work done to advance LGBT+ inclusion in the workplace and advocate for the rights of LGBT people across the world,” said Leanne MacMillan, Director of Global at Stonewall (she/her). “As a global employer Cambridge achieved vital change by ensuring its workplaces are safe, supportive, and free of discrimination, and that LGBT+ staff are able to thrive at work.”
