“Winning this award validates the impact our data-driven approach is having across credit recruiting and DEI. This year Jensen Partners placed more credit talent than ever before in our history and more than 80% of the candidates we placed identify as belonging to one or more underrepresented groups,” said Sasha Jensen, Founder and CEO of Jensen Partners. “We have also expanded our ability to leverage data for our credit clients through our proprietary Diversity Pipeline Tracker and the launch of DiversityMetrics — the first enterprise software platform to combine self-reported diversity data and human capital management technology specifically designed for asset managers seeking to quantify, measure, report and improve workforce diversity and inclusion.

With our proprietary Diversity Pipeline Tracker, powered by DiversityMetrics, Jensen Partners is able to source more diverse credit candidates than any other recruiter.”
