Impacting through diversity
We have a deep and longstanding commitment to advancing diversity, equity, and inclusion in business, in society, and within our firm.
At Amaka, diversity, equity, and inclusion are not just moral imperatives, they are integral to our dual mission—to help our clients make substantial, lasting performance improvements and to build a firm that attracts, develops, excites, and retains exceptional people.
Through our groundbreaking research, we have set out a compelling business and economic case for diversity. Using our global reach, we share our insights, convene partnerships for action, and serve clients to inform critical decision-makers with the power to make real change.

We pride ourselves on diversity, equity, and inclusion at our firm.
Our commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion is embedded in our history and daily practice. We have long sought to advance and promote diversity in our own firm, and to foster an inclusive culture where every colleague feels a deep sense of respect and belonging. We also strive to do the same in our clients’ organizations and in society more broadly.
In June 2020, we committed to our All Heads framework to deliver change within our firm and to play our part in combating racism across the world, and we provided a progress update in the summer of 2021.
Through our culture, policies, and systems we strive to create an exceptional global environment for all colleagues. Our affinity networks foster community, mentorship, professional development, and advancement for women, members of the LGBTQ+ community, colleagues from minority ethnic groups, parents of special-needs children, veterans, and colleagues with disabilities.
