The civil injustice and unrest that erupted in the US and elsewhere has reinforced the need for progress. At AB, we recognize the value of diverse perspectives, ideas and backgrounds, and we’re committed to being a force for change. We’re taking—and evaluating—many actions to fight racial injustice and inequity.
These efforts include advancing the recruiting, development and retention of diverse talent, and ensuring that more diverse leaders are on a path to senior decision-making roles. We’re revisiting corporate philanthropy and promoting diversity and adherence to ethical and human rights standards among our suppliers. As investors, we’re working to influence positive change that also leads to better financial outcomes for our clients.
