Ariane Marchis-Mouren



Bio: Ariane is an associate on BlackRock's Investment Stewardship (BIS) team based in London. Her primary responsibilities include supporting the team with its proxy voting activities, and contributing to BlackRock's engagement with companies in the EMEA region on governance, social, and environmental issues. She actively works with BlackRock's portfolio companies to address economic risks that arise from social, environmental and governance issues, and coordinates the integration of corporate governance and responsible investment considerations into the investment process.

Ariane joined BlackRock on the graduate programme in 2018, and is a committee member of the firm's Out & Allies network, 100 Women in Finance NextGen committee, and the Diversity Project's LGBT+ workstream. She is passionate about promoting diversity, inclusion and intersectionality in the workplace, and is proud of BlackRock's culture and commitment to these priorities.

Prior to joining BlackRock, Ariane graduated from Bryn Mawr College with a B.A. in Economics, International Studies and Political Science, and completed a M.A. in International Relations with a focus on European Security from Durham University.
"I always (naively) thought that gender inequality and the push for LGBT+ diversity and inclusion were pretty much obsolete. Let me explain: Bryn Mawr College, a historically women's liberal arts college, has consistently been ranked #1 most LGBTQ-friendly college in the U.S. by The Princeton Review, and St. Aidan's College, where I lived during my postgraduate studies, is known for being Durham University's most LGBTQ-friendly college. I never questioned the place or visibility of women and queer people in the communities I found myself in because we ran the world. I recognise that it was a privilege to have been surrounded by such a nurturing and empowering environment during my most formative years. Today, I am lucky to work in a firm that values diversity and inclusion in all shapes and forms. While our culture encourages an environment where people are comfortable being themselves, I still believe the industry has a long way to go in terms of promoting visible role models for aspiring talent. I am eager to continue advocating for bi/pan representation and visibility in the industry, particularly for women like myself who struggle to find role models to look up to as we progress in our careers."
