In episode 7, Bert Feuss (Senior VP of Investments) and Sue McAllister (Marketing Director) discuss SVCF's efforts to increase the number of minority and women investment managers at SVCF. Because SVCF values inclusion and diversity in all aspects of our business, we had to take a hard look at our investment practices and acknowledge that there was room for improvement.
Bert and Sue talk about why this effort has been such a great success, including increased investment in communities that other investment managers overlook. They walk us through the process of hiring consultants, finding talented women- & minority-owned investment managers, and the excellent results we've had so far. Bert and Sue wrap up by discussing some steps that other nonprofits or foundations can take to increase diversity in the hiring process.
