Hg believes that having a diverse workforce deepens our talent pool and brings us a wider range of perspectives. It manifests in how we navigate the business world, including the investment decisions we make.
Not only is it fundamentally the right thing to do, we have seen first-hand how diversity and inclusion (‘D&I’) creates a virtuous
cycle: the more diverse and inclusive we are, the more each individual is able to add value. That translates to a greater impact for all stakeholders – investors, portfolio companies, employees and the communities in which we work and live.
D&I has always been important to Hg and in 2019 we began to formalise and communicate our D&I strategy, which included targets to better drive and measure progress. We still have some way to go, but Hg have been taking significant steps since to become a much more diverse and inclusive firm and we remain fully committed to driving change.
