Ares' Inclusion & Diversity Council
The mission of the Ares’ Inclusion & Diversity Council is to establish well-orchestrated strategies and operating plans that incorporate business alignment, leadership accountability and measured success in the following areas:
ARES’ WOMEN’S NETWORK
The mission of the Ares’ Women’s Network is to cultivate a highly talented and diverse workforce that values idea generation and unique perspectives. The goal of the program is to attract, support, advance and impact the careers of women at the firm through activities including women’s networking events, “Link Up with Leadership” meetings, “Women Who Lead” speaker sessions, and sponsorship of women’s organizations. We believe that enhanced interaction and collaboration among Ares’ female professionals can accelerate their progress and success.
