Meketa announces results of 2022 diversity, equity, and inclusion questionnaire

May 2022

Meketa Investment Group (Meketa), a global investment consulting and fiduciary management (OCIO) firm, today announced the results of its second annual questionnaire aimed at evaluating asset managers’ efforts for a deeper understanding of Diversity, Equity & Inclusion (“DEI”) within their organizations. The firm’s Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Questionnaire was distributed to public and private market managers in Meketa’s proprietary database in January 2022.

In total, 420 managers responded to the questionnaire, which is a 50% increase in response rate from managers compared to 2021. Participation was highest for total firm diversity statistics, with many managers abstaining from reporting diversity statistics for decision-making positions such as boards of directors, and equity ownership. However, it is worth noting that not all firms have a board in place. The questionnaire looked at three key areas: 1) Transparency and Reporting; 2) Policies and Initiatives; and 3) Employee Conduct.
