Incorporating Diverse Managers into your Foundation’s Investment Program

Host Organization: Exponent Philanthropy


Diverse and women-owned investment funds only manage a combined 1.3% of the investment industry, which is more than $76 trillion in assets. Diversification of manager backgrounds is often overlooked and not generally considered as part of the manager selection criteria. Clients should be able to express their values through their portfolios and reflect the communities they serve. Through a panel discussion on the importance of incorporating diversity, equity, and inclusion into a foundation investment program, learn how foundations include diverse managers in their investment portfolios. 

Learning Objectives: 

  • Recognize how diverse investment managers are additive to investment portfolios 
  • Understand how organizations are incorporating diverse managers into their portfolio 
  • Determine ways you can include diverse investment managers into your investment program 

A recording of the full program, including the live Q&A, will be provided to those who register.
