Talking about black on Bloomberg

Justin Onuekwusi, Head of Retail Multi-Asset Funds, recently spoke with Bloomberg about the #talkaboutblack campaign and how we can improve diversity in the financial industry.

 

In many industries, creating a diverse workforce has been challenging and asset management is no exception. To change that and genuinely embed diversity, I believe we need to build a more inclusive culture in the financial industry.

As I explain in this interview with Bloomberg, that begins by understanding the lived experience of employees and candidates; considering all ethnic minorities in aggregate risks ignoring the very different experiences of each community and individual.

I also call on the industry to showcase role models from different backgrounds to attract a more diverse candidate pool, and describe the after-school programme we are launching to help teach softer skills like networking and introduce people to investing.
