Chaired by Andy Johnson, our Diversity Council is a sub-committee of the firm’s Operating Committee (a group of 30+ senior leaders who provide guidance on the day-to-day activities of Neuberger Berman). The Council, which includes global representation across our investment, client coverage and operating platforms, helps to set and drive the firm’s EID strategy.

Employee Resource Group Leaders
Our ERG Leaders provide an essential voice to Andy Johnson, senior leadership and our EID team, serving as a sounding board on important issues and initiatives. Broadly, our ERGs align their programming—in many cases focusing on intersectionality—to help further the firm’s EID efforts and more deeply engage our people.
