Inspiring Change: Jupiter's Ongoing Commitment to LGBT Great
February 08, 2024
LGBT Great, the trailblazing advocate for LGBTQ+ diversity and inclusion, proudly announces that Jupiter Asset Management has reaffirmed its steadfast commitment for the second consecutive year. Jupiter, one of the UK's leading fund managers with assets exceeding £50 billion, continues to champion diversity and inclusion in the Financial Services sector.
At a time marked by the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) and Prudential Regulation Authority (PRA) releasing their ground-breaking Diversity and Inclusion Consultation Paper, and with Jupiter actively reviewing its workplace policies, this partnership represents an inspiring stride by Jupiter to enhance its LGBTQ+ approach towards building a more inclusive asset management sector.
Jupiter has taken decisive action in fostering an open, inclusive, and confident work environment. The firm has organised numerous awareness events, fortified its Jupiter Pride Network, and tirelessly worked to elevate LGBTQ+ issues throughout the organisation, extending beyond the traditional Pride calendar.
Looking ahead, Jupiter is unwavering in its commitment to LGBT Great in 2024, aiming to bolster its journey toward diversity and inclusion excellence. The collaboration will intensify efforts in workplace and policy guidance, training, education, as well as LGBTQ+ careers and talent attraction. Jupiter, dedicated to progress, has benchmarked itself using LGBT Great's Inclusion Index Benchmarking Tool (iiBT) to identify strengths and areas of improvement in its Diversity and Inclusion strategy.
Jupiter's aspiration is clear: to further enhance the workplace experience for LGBTQ+ individuals and to wholeheartedly embrace intersectionality in all inclusion initiatives. The company will dedicate itself to addressing inclusion challenges and fostering greater connectivity among its employee resource networks.
As corporate members of LGBT Great, Jupiter is a part of the #ProudWork Sustainability Programme, a ground-breaking initiative committed to engaging businesses with the LGBTQ+ community, augmenting LGBTQ+ representation, and bolstering the Financial and Professional industry's reputation for inclusivity. Anticipate a wave of new and exciting initiatives from this program in 2024.

"Since its inception in 2018, our Jupiter Pride Network has been a driving force behind our DE&I initiatives. Being part of the LGBT Great Membership Community, and having access to its network, insights, and thought leadership, gives us the ability to significantly enhance the experience for LGBTQ+ people and allies at Jupiter. We remain steadfast in our commitment to fostering an inclusive environment where everyone can achieve their full potential."
