Carlyle’s Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Council launched in 2013 as one of the first 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 boards of Carlyle portfolio companies are diverse by 2023. As an active leader in Carlyle’s Global Mentorship Program, which has had over 1,000 pairings globally since its inception in 2015, Sandra oversees more than 100 employees, 61% of whom are diverse (female or ethnic minority). She is a long-time Executive Sponsor of Carlyle’s Women’s Employee Resource Group, which creates inclusive environments for women to advance their skills and leadership potential through connection, mentorship and discussion.
