Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion at Multnomah Group

I am pleased to announce that our firm has established a Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Committee. We recently spent several months inviting experts from outside the organization to educate our team on the issues of diversity, equity, and inclusion and how they impact us, our clients, and our community. When we completed our training, we created this committee, tasking them with continuing the work we started in our training and helping our firm ensure that these issues are integrated into how we behave as an organization and serve our clients.

I owe a great debt to my colleagues who have volunteered to participate in this committee's launch and early work. We have representatives from every area in our organization, which will be critical since the Mission of this committee touches every aspect of our organization.

To help foster transparency in our goals and progress, we have launched a new Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion page that will highlight our mission, members, and progress towards our goals. We believe that to help our clients create and maintain the best possible retirement plans for their participants, we as an organization must recognize, understand, support, and leverage the differences that make each of us unique and valuable. This committee is tasked with making us accountable for this objective.

As the 2021 Diverse Asset Managers Initiative Annual Investment Consultant Survey notes, “The asset management industry has always been overwhelmingly white and male.” We are committed to driving change in our industry, and we expect that we will be held accountable for that commitment.
