Our Diversity Action Plan

The Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Committee creates and enforces our Diversity Action Plan, which outlines our approach to enhancing inclusiveness through recruitment and hiring practices, staff development, and engagement with third-party vendors.

Hiring

We actively recruit and expand employment opportunities for minorities, women, veterans, and individuals with disabilities by sourcing from a diverse talent pool and taking actions to reduce bias in the hiring process.

Current Staff

We are committed to the training, development, retention, and promotion of minorities, women, LGBTQ employees, veterans, and individuals with disabilities currently employed at the firm.

Subcontractors and Suppliers

We believe that working with a diverse slate of vendors and subcontractors allows us to remain competitive by giving us access to the most creative and innovative ideas.

Fostering an inclusive workplace is one of our core values and part of our overall business strategy"

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.
