Our UK investment recognized for diversity & inclusion!

May 12, 2021

We’re thrilled that one of our UK investments has been recognized for its efforts towards gender equality.

Thames Water ranked in The Times Top 50 Employers for Women, which is one of the UK’s most prestigious and well-established listings of employers striving for gender equality in the workplace. Thames Water CEO, Sarah Bentley, will also become chair of a respected UK gender equality business group called Business In The Community’s Gender Equality Leadership Team.

Since 2017, OMERS has had a stake in Thames Water, through our Infrastructure business. One of the largest providers of water and wastewater services in the UK, Thames Water serves approximately 10 million water customers and 15 million wastewater customers. If you are interested in OMERS Infrastructure, you can find more information on the team and the portfolio on their website.

This recognition was additionally meaningful to us given the importance that we put on diversity and inclusion. We’re committed to having a team that reflects the communities in which we live and work and we are focusing our efforts on recognizing the diverse talents that drive our business forward. Diversity and inclusion for us means that we respect and value the broadest range of experiences, geographies, genders, ethnicities and perspectives as key elements of our culture. Like so many others, we are a work in progress, and if you are interested in our approach, we have more information on our website.
