Our Commitment to Diversity and Inclusion
At Natixis Investment Managers, we are actively committed to building a diverse and inclusive workforce. As a global asset manager with more than 20 independent investment affiliates, diverse thinking is at the heart of everything we do.
We continuously work to create an environment that promotes diversity and inclusion in all its forms, across gender, race, religion, sexual orientation, disability, ethnicity and background. We believe this creates equal opportunities for our employees — and better outcomes for our clients and communities.
Diversity is a business imperative at Natixis. Our multi-affiliate business model is built on our belief that leveraging many different ideas and perspectives leads to better results for our clients. Attracting and developing diverse talent is crucial to our long-term success, so our commitment to advancing diversity and inclusion in our offices and communities is an important part of our focus on sustainability.
Our culture invites different perspectives, new ideas and opportunities for growth. We work hard to ensure employees feel welcome and are valued and recognized for their hard work.
Our employees have access to a range of global and regional resource groups that offer rich connection points for networking and community engagement, including:
- Women in Natixis Network (WINN)
