The company has achieved its goal of 25% women managing directors globally by the end of 2020 and has set a new goal of 30% by 2025.

The company recently announced new goals for increased race and ethnicity representation in the US, the UK and South Africa by 2025 — and today reported the outcomes of promotions and appointments, which are effective December 1. Details follow:

  • US

Goals: More than double the number of African American and Black and Hispanic American and Latinx managing directors. This will increase representation of African American and Black managing directors from 2.8% to 4.4% and of Hispanic American and Latinx managing directors from 3.5% to 4.7%.

 

This year, among the 208 new managing directors in the US, 8% (17) are African American/Black and nearly 5% (10) are Hispanic American/Latinx, bringing the total to 3.2% African American and Black and 3.6% Hispanic American and Latinx managing directors today.
