We embrace diversity and encourage an inclusive culture at Causeway, as is reflected in the composition of our firm.
Our 100% employee-owned firm is majority-owned by women and minorities (combined). Nearly 50% of our current employees are minorities, and over 30% are women. Since inception, women have comprised at least 50% our board of managers—currently, women are 75% of the board.
Causeway is committed to improving professional opportunities for women. We partner with Girls Who Invest, a nonprofit organization dedicated to increasing the number of women in portfolio management and executive leadership in the asset management industry, and our CEO, Sarah Ketterer, is a member of the advisory board. Causeway actively recruits women for positions in conjunction with multiple organizations, including Women in Institutional Investments Network (WIIN). Causeway employees have participated on speaker panels at WIIN conferences and are members of WIIN, and one employee who is a member of the WIIN board of directors.
Charitable and community involvement
We believe it’s important to make a difference outside of our offices as well.
Causeway employees participate in community outreach programs in our local schools, as well as initiatives coordinated by L.A. Works, which focuses on contributing to a more equitable Los Angeles by organizing 25,000 volunteers per year to address the most pressing issues of our community through meaningful acts of service. We have prepped meals at Project Angel Food, hosted a Halloween carnival at the Boys and Girls Club and beautified a number of public schools.
We also participate in annual fundraising events designed to benefit the John Tracey Clinic, a charitable organization that provides parent-centered services locally and globally to young children with hearing loss, offering families hope, guidance, and encouragement.
