Our Commitment to Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion
At Cutter, we believe in a diverse and inclusive work environment where all individuals, regardless of their age, color, disability status, ethnicity, gender, gender expression, gender identity, national origin, race, religion, sex, or sexual orientation, are treated with dignity and respect. We are committed to a nondiscriminatory approach and strive to provide equal opportunity for employment, development, and advancement. Cutter supports DEI (diversity, equality, and inclusion) because we believe it improves business outcomes for our clients, benefits our industry and society, and helps our employees feel safe and respected while being their authentic selves.
To that end, we will promote meaningful progress in DEI through a range of action items, including the following:
Developing Our Existing Workforce − Cutter will assess what barriers to DEI exist throughout our organization, and work to remove these barriers by providing educational information and resources internally.
Building Our Future Workforce – Cutter is committed to attracting and retaining employees from diverse backgrounds and fostering an equal, inclusive, and supportive environment. We will take measures to recruit talent from more diverse pools. (See our open positions here.)
Developing Our Business Network – Cutter recognizes the importance of supporting minority-owned and -run businesses and giving them equal opportunities in the marketplace. Cutter will assess our current suppliers and develop a supplier diversity plan that is inclusive of minority-owned and -run businesses.
Investing by Giving − Cutter recognizes the importance of taking concrete action in our communities and will support and encourage employees to volunteer for organizations to further the cause of DEI.
Creating Opportunities for the Next Generation −
Cutter recognizes that the next generation plays a critical role in ensuring DEI across the asset and wealth management industry. Cutter will work to develop opportunities for underrepresented talent who demonstrate an interest in working in research and consulting within our industry.
Cutter’s journey in understanding and promoting diversity, equity, and inclusion continues with these steps. We are determined to move forward on this at a greater pace, and we recognize that our contributions result in progress for all.
Whether developing operational strategies that drive meaningful value, or evaluating, selecting, and implementing systems, Cutter is here to help.
