We are committed to promoting diversity and inclusion in and across our business and ensuring equal opportunities for all our people. We value our people and respect their professional skills and personal qualities. We believe that the diversity in our workforce adds to an enriched workplace and an open culture. Our people are assessed on their skills and experience alone to fulfil the roles we ask of them and opportunities for training, promotion and transfer to other roles within our business are available to all.
As a recruiter for the private equity industry, we are also committed to supporting our clients in their own diversity and inclusion strategies by providing diversity in our shortlists and breadth in our candidate pool. Gender diversity is a global issue for private equity firms. We are consciously providing gender diversity in our shortlists and our monitoring shows that currently 25% of all offers made are to female candidates. We are working with our clients to increase this percentage with industry wide initiatives and a focus on the issue. We are an active supporter of Level20, an organisation committed to increasing the representation of females at senior levels in private equity.
