DIVERSITY, EQUITY & INCLUSION
At Neuberger Berman, we are dedicated to cultivating a diverse, inclusive and equitable environment, where our people can be their authentic selves and realize their professional and personal goals. Our approach is based on three primary tenets: empowering, connecting and caring.
Empowering : Our people have a voice and can bring their unique perspectives to both the business table and our walls. Notably, our Advocacy Walk-located on our executive floor-is a curation of pieces from our art collection that highlights important societal issues, and reinforces that we are a firm that encourages feedback and inspires our colleagues to take risks.
Connecting : Our people are united in the way we collaborate and lead. With support from the firm, many of our engagement initiatives, create a greater sense of fellowship amongst our colleagues and stronger connections. This includes our Employee Resources Groups-Women’s Forum, Veterans Group, NB Pride Network, NextGen Network, and the NB Black Experience-and cultural celebrations for Diwali, Chinese New Year and Hispanic Heritage Month, among others in which we celebrate the diversity of our people.
Caring : Our people serve their communities. Our NB Impacts program allows employees to leverage the firm’s broad resources to support their causes globally through charity and volunteer efforts that matter to them. From providing financial support (including the Neuberger Berman Foundation and corporate grants) to using our skills, time and effort (volunteerism and nonprofit board service), we believe strongly in extending our culture of service from clients to our community.
Neuberger Berman is passionate about supporting this environment by creating a workplace that provides balance and support for our employees-both professionally and personally. Our Employee Investment Solutions and best-in-class retirement program focus on financial health and wellness. In-house yoga, meditation and Peloton bikes, along with nutrition counseling and healthy cooking demos, are among our many body and mind wellness opportunities.
