Diversity and Inclusion

 

III is committed to seeking and maintaining diversity at all levels of our firm and to fostering an inclusive workplace that enables all employees to thrive and to achieve their full potential.

  • We have a policy of providing equal opportunity and of tolerating no discrimination of any kind, including on the basis of race, gender, gender identity, sexual orientation, age, disability, religion, national origin, political affiliation, socioeconomic and family or marital status or similar characteristics (see: Equal Employment Opportunity Policy).
     
  • III is committed to a firm culture centered around character and ethics, which is incompatible with discrimination against or mistreatment of employees, potential employees or others on the basis of such characteristics.

We believe that a workforce comprised of highly qualified individuals with diverse backgrounds, cultures and traditions can enhance our performance as a firm. We seek to increase diversity in hiring, development and leadership within III. We aspire to use our platform to effect change and help develop a broader and more diverse future applicant pool, as well as to have broader and increasingly meaningful ties to our communities -- in particular to help communities with fewer resources and greater needs (see: Diversity and Inclusion Policy, which outlines some of the ways III seeks to further these goals).

Diversity and Inclusion Committee: The Committee considers any diversity-related issues that arise and is tasked with proposing and considering additional measures that III may pursue to advance its diversity and inclusion efforts. The current Committee members are: Karen Hansen, Chairperson (General Counsel); Yelena Anuar (CFO); Jennifer Davis (HR Director); Jerry Dupont (Co-Head of Financing Solutions); Francis Feeney (Head of IR); and Scott Wyler (Chief Executive Officer).

Hiring and Leadership: III seeks to apply hiring and employment practices that are designed to attract, retain, promote and develop highly qualified talent from diverse groups, including underrepresented groups. 

Community Engagement and Outreach: III supports causes and programs that help us connect to our communities and help people in need, including those that are directly and specifically structured to benefit and assist communities that are majority composed of underrepresented groups.  In addition to supporting such causes, III also seeks to develop and support programs (e.g., tutoring, internships, mentoring, scholarships, etc.) that help develop talent and foster interest in our business and our industry among these communities. 

We are proud of the fact our people were born in 20 different countries around the world, represented by these flags:
