Our Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Statement
EIV Capital is committed to fostering, cultivating and preserving a culture that embraces the diverse backgrounds and experiences of our team. Our human capital is the most valuable asset we have. The collective sum of the individual differences, life experiences, knowledge, inventiveness, self-expression, unique capabilities and talent that our employees invest in their work represents a significant part of not only our culture, but our reputation and company’s achievement as well.
EIV Capital team members come from all walks of life. A majority of the firm’s leadership team identify as female or from underrepresented groups, and our employees hail from a wide range of professional backgrounds, including investment banking, industry operations, capital project management, and consulting. The complementary experience and perspectives that each team member brings to EIV Capital uniquely strengthen our opportunity evaluation process and investment stewardship.
We are committed to the professional development and continued growth of every employee so that each person’s talents can be maximized for the benefit of one’s personal growth as well as the firm. Every employee is provided with resources to pursue training and opportunities for continuous learning.
EIV Capital seeks to prioritize diversity, equity and inclusion as it invests into the next generation of business leaders, both at the firm and the larger community. Through our long-standing partnership with Cristo Rey Jesuit College Preparatory School of Houston, EIV Capital provides internships to talented students from underrepresented and underserved communities to equip them with essential business and life skills. EIV’s contributions have been recognized in the Houston community, and in 2022 EIV Capital was the recipient of Cristo Rey’s “Excellence in Student Care” award.
EIV Capital’s diversity initiatives are applicable, but not limited to, our recruiting efforts, compensation and benefits, professional development, promotions, and the ongoing development of a work environment built on the premise of diversity, equity, and inclusion that encourages and enforces:
In preserving a culture of diversity and inclusion, EIV Capital has a zero-tolerance policy regarding workplace violence and will not tolerate acts or threats of violence, harassment, intimidation, and other disruptive behavior, either physical or verbal, which includes any intentional behavior that may cause a person to feel threatened.
At EIV Capital, we believe that diversity of background and thought at all levels of the organization results in a better investment evaluation process and, ultimately, better outcomes for our investors.
