Our goal is to create a structure that facilitates an increased appreciation for diverse perspectives and skills, which in turn will facilitate increased collaboration and enhance our ability to attract, retain, develop, and engage top talent.
To help facilitate our goal of heightening awareness of the importance of diverse perspectives, five employee groups, overseen by an Inclusion, Diversity & Culture staff, were created:
Over 400 volunteers have demonstrated interest in collaborating at a grass-roots level towards creating a more diverse and inclusive environment at PIMCO.
The employee resource groups have provided significant guidance around educational programming, networking opportunities, best practice resource creation, policy and process feedback.
Innovation requires an exchange of ideas that raises awareness of different perspectives. In the spirit of aligning our broader culture with our long-standing investment process, we should recognize that an active dialogue that engages diverse views enables us to not only optimize portfolios, but also our teams. Creating an inclusive, cognitively diverse environment will enable us to be a better service provider to our clients and better colleagues to each other.
