DEIB Policy

Last updated 07/2023

Ethos Capital is committed to Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Belonging (DEIB) and equal opportunities for its employees and within its portfolio companies. Ethos Capital complies with all equal employment opportunity laws. Ethos Capital is dedicated to encouraging a supportive and inclusive culture amongst the whole workforce to promote integrity, teamwork, and respect for others. We believe that diverse and inclusive teams, where individuals feel a sense of belonging, can make better decisions, and diverse teams can build better businesses. Our support for diversity, equity, inclusion, and belonging is integral to our culture and at the core of our identity as a firm.

Our aim is to ensure that all employees and job applicants are given equal employment opportunities and feel a strong sense of belonging. Each employee should be respected, valued, and able to give their best as a result.

This policy reinforces our commitment to providing equality, fairness, and belonging to all in our employment and not provide less favorable treatment or terms on the grounds of any legally protected characteristic, including without limitation, age, disability, gender reassignment, marriage and civil partnership, pregnancy and maternity, race, ethnic origin, color, nationality, national origin, religion or belief, or sex and sexual orientation. We are opposed to all forms of unlawful discrimination and harassment.

All employees, no matter whether they are part-time, full-time, or temporary, should be treated fairly, with respect, and feel a sense of belonging. When Ethos Capital selects candidates for employment, promotion, training, or any other benefit, it will be based on equal employment opportunity. All employees will be given encouragement to develop their full potential, utilize their unique talents, and foster a sense of belonging.

We are focused on translating strategy into execution and tracking what impact this approach has on the employee experience and their sense of belonging. Driving sustainable change requires effective monitoring and implementation efforts, in accordance with all applicable laws, and we track employee diversity attributes as a result.

Ethos Capital will inform all employees that this DEIB Policy is in operation and that they are obligated to comply with its requirements and promote fairness and a sense of belonging in the workplace. Our DEIB Policy may also be drawn to the attention of funding sources, stakeholders, customers, lenders, and job applicants.
