Meketa announces adoption of the CFA Institute Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Code

August 2022

Today, Meketa announced it has adopted the voluntary CFA Institute Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Code for Investment Professionals in the United States and Canada (“DEI Code”), effective August 1, 2022.

Launched in February 2022, the DEI Code provides investment industry organizations with an action-oriented and principles-based framework through which to drive measurable and meaningful change concerning diversity, equity and inclusion within organizations. As a baseline, signatories must, within two years, adopt a DEI policy and statement, establish a senior leadership ownership and oversight governance process, and implement a plan to integrate DEI within the organization’s people, processes and policies. Signatories also commit to six principles that seek to drive DEI progress as it relates to the talent pipeline, staff acquisition, promotion and retention, leadership, influence, and measurement. Further, signatories pledge  to accelerate and amplify the impact of their commitment by making the economic, business, and moral case for diversity, equity, and inclusion.
