Promoting an Inclusive Workplace
Senior leaders at GCM Grosvenor participate in our Inclusive Leadership program to heighten awareness on Unconscious Bias, Microaggressions and Intersectionality so they can be more mindful about adopting inclusive attitudes, behaviors, and actions as part of their charge as leaders at Grosvenor.
All GCM Grosvenor employees have access to our online Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) Resource Center. This compilation of movies, books, podcasts, research, and articles helps broaden awareness by providing resources to those who wish to educate themselves on creating a more diverse, equitable, and inclusive industry and society. We also support our inclusive culture by sponsoring employee resource groups that promote professional and personal development including our Women’s Inspirational Networking Group, Pride Alliance, and Parent Resource Group.
