Voices of RPIA
In Our Firm
Breaking Barriers: Diversity & Inclusion
Kripa Kapadia, Director, Client Portfolio Management, spoke on AIMA’s Breaking Barriers: Diversity & Inclusion Panel on December 8, 2020. She was joined by minority leaders from other organizations in the industry to discuss race, ethnicity, and culture, and how these topics factored into some of the challenges faced by minorities in the investment industry. On this panel, Kripa shared her personal experiences and provided some insight on actionable ideas for improving allyship, education, mentorship, recruitment, and authentic leadership at firms of all sizes. After this panel, Kripa also shared her thoughts and experiences internally at the firm by hosting an open, firm-wide dialogue about how everyone can be an amplifier of inclusion and diversity at RPIA every day.
The Equity Workshop
Equity Leaders, Next Gen Men hosted a thought- provoking workshop to help us understand, identify, and acknowledge the different forms of individual, organizational, and societal power and privilege. From there, we worked towards strengthening self- awareness and gaining practical strategies and approaches to share power and increase equity in the workplace. As a group, we defined allyship and considered practical examples and approaches, limitations and concerns, and the value of sharing and using power and privilege to actively support and defend the rights and dignity of others within and outside of RPIA!
