Inclusion, Diversity, Equity and Action

Our people are our most valuable asset, and we continually aim to foster a culture that leverages the diversity of our workforce creating an environment where employees feel welcomed, valued and supported to do their best work.

Our Approach

NISA seeks to intentionally cultivate and maintain an inclusive, ever-growing community that embraces different viewpoints. We recognize and value the diversity of perspectives and life experiences that bring value and lead to better outcomes for our employees, our clients, NISA and the community. We aim to foster a culture that leverages a diverse workforce by continually growing and attracting underrepresented talent for both NISA and the investment management industry.

Our approach is guided by our core values of integrity, teamwork, accountability and intellectual curiosity. The following values further support our DEI commitment:

  • Respect: showing appreciation for the many attributes, accomplishments and unique contributions that people bring
  • Dignity: inherently valuing each person for their humanity and their personal lived experiences
  • Belonging: creating an environment where everyone feels accepted for who they are and has equitable opportunities to participate in the organization to their full potential 

Inclusion, Diversity and Equity in Action (IDEA)

We strive to become the change we seek. Our IDEA team is a cross-functional and committed group of employees shaping our inclusion journey and action initiatives.

The IDEA team promotes a sense of belonging by creating employee-led engagement and offering community collaboration opportunities. These activities help build an equitable and sustainable workplace and community where people desire to stay, engage, innovate and thrive.
