Diversity is at the very core of our ability to serve our clients well and to maximize return for our shareholders. Diversity supports and strengthens the firm’s culture, and it reinforces our reputation as the employer of choice in our industry and beyond.

Our commitment to creating and sustaining a diverse work environment is absolute, for three reasons:
FOR THE FIRM
We strive for excellence. To achieve it, we must have the best people, and the best people are drawn from the broadest pool of applicants. The people we need can be found only by looking across the full spectrum of race, color, religion, creed, sex, age, national origin, citizenship status, disability, qualified veteran status, genetic information, marital status, sexual orientation and gender identity.
FOR OUR PEOPLE
Ours is a culture of teamwork. For our groups to excel, all members must feel that they are operating in an inclusive environment that welcomes and supports differences, and that encourages input from all perspectives. Our people have the right to expect a workplace in which the richness of their lives and experience is welcomed and valued by their team and by the firm.
FOR OUR CLIENTS
Their interests always come first. To continue providing our clients with creative ideas and solutions for operating effectively in a complex global economy, we must be fully capable of dealing with different cultures in an informed and nuanced manner. Experience has shown us that we can best serve our clients’ interests by tapping the insights, talents and judgments of a diverse workforce.
DIVERSITY AND INCLUSION AT ELAROLAH CAPITAL
Sustaining a work environment where our people feel comfortable bringing their full selves to work and are empowered to reach their full potential continues to be a priority. As a firm, we believe that having the best team positions us to meet the needs of our clients – and to have the best team, our people must bring a range of perspectives to the table and reflect the diversity of the communities where we live and work.
Over the years, the firm’s diversity efforts have evolved from raising broader awareness and delivering an array of programs to a more deliberate, data-driven and targeted approach. We have made some progress, but we have significant work to do. To drive progress for our firm towards our aspirational goals, we have a range of initiatives in place to increase diverse representation at all levels and foster inclusion, including:
RECRUITING THE BEST, MOST DIVERSE TALENT
We continue to search for talent in new places and in new ways, from leveraging technology (e.g., HireVue video interviews and Virtual Insight Webinar Series for students to learn about financial services and to prepare for interviews) engaging with a broader range of candidates and offering early-pipeline programs designed to engage and attract people who may not otherwise look to pursue a career in financial services (e.g. Diverse Abilities) – to partnering with numerous external organizations to help us improve our diversity recruiting efforts.
CONTRIBUTING TO AN INCLUSIVE ENVIRONMENT
Attracting and hiring diverse talent is essential, but it is only one component of our approach. We offer a number of programs designed to help our people contribute to an inclusive environment.
