CalPERS is committed to a work environment that promotes and supports diversity and inclusion. The Investment Office Targeted Investment Programs team works with the CalPERS Diversity Outreach Program to engage and promote a diverse workforce and extend that philosophy to our stakeholders. We also host the Diversity Forum, which explores the representation of women and minorities in business.

Our Approach

CalPERS has a strategic, 3-tiered approach to ensure a diverse and inclusive environment:

  • Marketplace - We serve our members with sensitivity to their diverse perspectives. Our business partners include certified Small Business and Disabled Veteran Business Enterprises.
  • Workforce - We recruit and retain a high-performance team inclusive of our state’s rich diversity.
  • Workplace - We actively educate our leadership and staff to increase diversity and inclusion awareness, understanding, and skills that lead to greater quality, respect, and accountability.
