Landmark research led by Mercer has created a baseline for the diversity of the investment management industry, identified the barriers that must be tackled to disrupt the status quo and articulated an industry-developed blueprint for change. In this session, Mercer’s Diversity and Inclusion Practice Leader, Yolanda Beattie, will share the detailed findings and outline what investment managers can do differently to attract and keep diverse talent.
