When it comes to CSR and talent retention, the topic of diversity has never been higher on the agenda of many countries and companies. Long term issues next to potential racial disadvantages, such as prominent gender pay gaps, lack of female and POC leadership, as well as fewer chances for the disabled are hindering the creation of diverse workforces. With institutional investors vetting fund managers more closely on their commitments to diversity, capital allocations might become dependent on such strategies in the future as well.
