Member Companies in the News

Janus Henderson Investors recently established goals for diversity and inclusion recruitment and added to its internship programs to reach those goals. Janus Henderson hopes the move will help the company find a new generation of talent and maintain a position of leadership in the active asset management space. The company aims to increase the number of women in senior management positions from 24% to 30% by 2023 and increase the number of racial and ethnically diverse senior managers from 11% to 16%.

Wells Fargo and ideas42, a nonprofit that uses insights from behavioral science to drive social change, announced Shared Prosperity Catalyst, a $15 million collaboration funded by Wells Fargo that aims to increase pathways to economic opportunity and advancement in the United States. The multi-year effort will initially focus on alleviating the disproportionate cost burdens, both financial and nonfinancial, faced by low- and moderate-income communities, and particularly communities of color.

Yum! Brands, Inc. released its annual Global Citizenship & Sustainability Report, highlighting the company’s strategic investments in socially responsible growth, risk management and sustainable stewardship of its people, food, and impact on the planet. The report also details that the number of women in senior leadership globally reached 47% at the company in 2020, prompting the quick-service operator to accelerate goals for gender parity to a 2025 deadline, five years ahead of schedule.
