We’re proud to be part of the Corporate Call to Action: Coalition for Equity & Opportunity (CCA) in the US, a corporate social justice initiative launched in September 2020 by the Connecticut Office of the Treasurer in partnership with the Ford Foundation. In 2021, we joined the Change the Race Ratio pledge, a CBI/Investment Association collaboration of employers to make progress on ethnic minority representation beyond Board level.
