Who Should Lead the Push for Progress on Diversity – LPs or GPs?

In a special conversation, originally hosted at ILPA’s Virtual Summit last fall, Orlando Bravo of Thoma Bravo and Theresa Whitmarsh of the Washington State Investment Board join Jen for a candid discussion on the specific roles that GPs and LPs are playing to advance DEI in the industry.

Theresa and Orlando weigh in on the responsibility of the LP to drive GP action on DEI. Orlando shares the importance of listening to younger voices on the team and thinking not just about culture “fit” but culture “add.” Theresa highlights the silver lining of the work from home era in widening the talent pool and WSIB’s approach to recruitment, and both share the steps their organizations are taking to create a culture that is truly inclusive.
