Participants of this round table gathered to discuss and share dimensions of their DEI frameworks to secure progress in meeting their Diversity, Equity, Inclusion goals.

Questions and challenges discussed include:

– How can teams regularly have the often difficult conversations around DEI?

– How to measure progress towards meeting DEI goals, recognizing that diversity can be defined in various ways and many of the more valuable insights are qualitative?

– How and when to involve the Board as the implementation of DEI policies are often management’s responsibility?

– In many cases, board members are elected, so there is no control over the Board make-up.

– In some jurisdictions, DEI is a matter for the law to monitor and enforce. In such cases, what is the role for fund management and the Board?

– How can teams align DEI efforts with metrics for fund managers?
