Why ED&I is important to Warren Partners
At Warren Partners we believe passionately that everyone, regardless of race, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, age, social background, or disability should have the opportunity to achieve their full potential. A founding principle of the business is treating others as we ourselves want to be treated - and that applies to everyone that we work with. We also know that diverse teams make better decisions and diverse businesses are more successful and profitable than ones that have a less diverse leadership and workforce. There’s a business and economic case for diversity as well as a moral one.
Why being a signatory to Change the Race Ratio is important to Warren Partners
We’ve been involved in FTSE Women Leaders and its predecessors to address the gender imbalance on the boards and in senior executive positions in FTSE350 companies for a number of years, so we've seen first-hand the impact of setting targets and leaders taking active steps to address gender disparity. But frankly, we'd been really frustrated that the dial wasn't shifting quickly enough in respect of ethnicity and race, which is why we decided we’d be one of the initial signatories to the Change the Race Ratio pledges.
