In signing the CEO Action Pledge, Cowen joins other leading companies across the U.S. that commit to four areas of action: continuing to cultivate workplaces that support open dialogue on complex, and sometimes difficult, conversations about inclusion and diversity; implementing and expanding unconscious bias education; sharing lessons learned from the best known—and unsuccessful—actions; and engaging their boards of directors in the development and evaluation of inclusion and diversity strategies.

“Advancing inclusion and diversity at Cowen is at the heart of our values of Vision, Empathy, Sustainability and Tenacious Teamwork,” said Solomon. “Taking the Pledge not only reaffirms Cowen’s ongoing commitment to inclusion and diversity, but also encourages others to do the same.”

Cowen believes that inclusion and diversity are important catalysts for success and innovation in the workplace and are a vital part of achieving its corporate objectives and key results. Cowen has had a longstanding focus on creating a distinctive and collaborative culture, in which everyone can thrive to their full potential. Signature initiatives include “Women Who Outperform,” the Cowen Inclusion Series, a program of CEO-led conversations with diverse leaders from across industries, and innovative theater-based, cross-cultural awareness and unconscious bias training.

“We look forward to working with the other members of the coalition to create positive change and innovation in the financial services industry and beyond,” Solomon added.
