Hogan Lovells supports GenderSmart launch of JEDI Investment toolkit
Global law firm Hogan Lovells is pleased to announce that the firm has supported GenderSmart on the co-creation and launch of the interactive Justice, Equity, Diversity and Inclusion (JEDI) toolkit. The toolkit has been designed to encourage allocators, investment influencers and intermediaries across the spectrum to understand the dimensions of JEDI investing, and start applying gender and JEDI lenses throughout their investment processes and strategies.
The toolkit will help investors, investment influencers, and intermediaries to:
• improve investment decision-making
• bring on board new portfolio or fund managers
• improve existing portfolios
• enact organisational change for both people and processes
The launch of the JEDI toolkit builds on from Hogan Lovells partnership with GenderSmart which began in September 2021 when the firm became the exclusive legal partner to their Justice, Equity, Diversity and Inclusion initiative (JEDI) through to the end of 2022. Senior Legal Director and Co-Head of Sustainable Finance, Sukhvir Basran, is Co-Chair of the GenderSmart JEDI Steering Committee, and Global Head of Financial Institutions, Sharon Lewis, is a member of the Steering Committee.
JEDI focuses on catalysing the incorporation of gender, racial and ethnic justice into global sustainable finance and investment decisions within public and private markets. Its mission is aligned with Hogan Lovells commitment to Diversity & Inclusion and Responsible Business, a strategic priority for the firm.
