In October 2020, Franklin Templeton announced that we were joining the Coalition for Equity & Opportunity (CEO), an effort led by The Office of Treasurer Shawn T. Wooden and the Ford Foundation to address racial inequity and promote economic prosperity for all. As part of this corporate call to action, we’re proud that we are committing to transparency and accountability by disclosing expanded workforce data.
Known generally as “EEO-1 data,” these disclosures will, for the first time, allow us to track and benchmark progress toward greater diversity within our organization. This effort in transparency is a reflection of our shared commitment to racial diversity, and we’re joined by many partners in the coalition who are eager to set this new industry standard on workforce diversity.
