perspectives, backgrounds, unique skills and experience of a truly diverse workforce bring to investors and the organisation.

Franklin Templeton’s core values and the desire to respect each individual, guide how we work together, value differences and pursue common goals and is an integral part of our employment policies and practices.

A UK perspective

As a board Director of our UK organisation and the Franklin Templeton Investments UK Diversity Champion, I am proud that our commitment to diversity and inclusion does not stop at hiring and employment policies. It extends to our support for external groups such as Stonewall who are active in campaigning for equality for the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Trans community. But perhaps the part I’m most proud of is the support employees give each other through our ever-growing network of communities and Business Resource Groups including:

  • ABLE@FTI (Abilities Beyond Limited Expectations) – A group whose aim is to unite and support those whose lives are impacted by disabilities, including physical, mental, behavioural or medical disabilities and delays.
  • BEN@FTI (Black Empowerment Network) – A group whose aim is to facilitate the success of all employees of African descent
  • Pride@FTI – A community to promote an inclusive environment for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Trans employees and their allies at Franklin Templeton
  • Women @FTI – A platform to encourage, inspire and support women in their career development at FTI
