63 percent male and no one identified as non-binary.
37 percent female.
44 percent under 30 years.

Responsible Alpha prioritizes diversity as a business strength as diversity drives richer and better strategic decision-making.
"Diversity is a fact and we are judged by our approach to inclusion that is formed by the choices we make everyday when we surround ourselves not by those who agree with us or whose identity we relate to, rather by those whose diverse experiences can drive both business growth and sustainability impact while we can learn from them with humility and gratitude."
Gabriel Thoumi, CEO, Responsible Alpha.

It does not discriminate or make hiring/promotion decisions on the basis of gender, race, gender identity, sexual orientation, religion, age, nationality, ethnicity, or any other identity.
