Carlyle’s Diversity & Inclusion Council launched in 2013 as one of the first groups of its kind in the investment management industry. As well as being a leader on this council, Sandra plays a pivotal role in ensuring at least half of the firm’s incoming classes are diverse. In the past year, she led the charge in re-evaluating and refining Carlyle’s portfolio board diversity goals, which now includes ensuring that 30% of all directors on the boards of Carlyle portfolio companies are diverse by 2023. As an active leader in Carlyle’s Global Mentorship Program, which has had over 800 participants globally within the last four years, Sandra oversees nearly 100 employees, 50% of whom are diverse. She also started Carlyle’s Women’s Employee Resource Group to help create inclusive environments that support and encourage women to advance their skills and leadership potential through connection, mentorship, collaboration and discussion.
