Diversity, Equity & Inclusion

AIMA is committed to leading on improving diversity, equity and inclusion (DE&I) in the alternative investment management industry.

AIMA’s work on DE&I is overseen by our Global DE&I Steering Group. The Steering Group's goal is to provide “practical resources, advice, role models and case studies to enable firms to develop a culture which embraces difference, and to hire and retain a more diverse and inclusive workforce”. Initiatives of AIMA and the Steering Group include AIMA and EY’s The Alternatives, a paper containing practical steps that firms of all sizes can take to improve DE&I, and AIMA and Albourne Partners’ DE&I Due Diligence Questionnaire, which is available to both members and non-members who are looking to explain their approach to DE&I. 

To help support gender DE&I across the alternative investment industry, AIMA has launched a Careers Network. The network provides a forum for individuals across the industry to connect, find mentors, and develop the skills and knowledge necessary to further their careers. For more information and details on how to join the network, please see here.
