“We were probably among the earliest in our part of the industry; we formed our Inclusion & Diversity Council in 2014, so we’ve been at it for a number of years,” said Suzanne Donohoe, partner, global head of strategic growth; co-chair, inclusion and diversity council, KKR & Co. “It really was formed at the top of our firm. Henry Kravis and George Roberts, our co-founders, came to a group of senior folks and said, ‘This matters; we think we could be doing a much better job; and we’d like your help driving it.’ It’s been a strategic priority since the beginning. We’ve done things to marshal resources and create a lot of energy across the firm, including things like unconscious bias training and a successor to that, which was about manager effectiveness.”
