Northleaf's Diversity & Inclusion by the Numbers

We are committed to maintaining a diverse and inclusive workplace as the firm continues to grow given our belief that more diverse companies are able to attract and retain exceptional talent. 

Northleaf has policies and procedures in place that support internal diversity and inclusion initiatives and gender balance, including a defined principled guideline for equal opportunity for all individuals, a policy on discrimination, harassment and violence in the workplace and employee leave (i.e. maternity, parental and adoption) policy. Northleaf is committed to conducting our business with the highest ethical standards and to providing a safe, equitable and inclusive work environment. 

We want to see a diverse pool of candidates for consideration for each job posting and seek out top talent with diverse personal and professional backgrounds and experiences. As part of our recruitment process for all positions, we reiterate our commitment to providing an inclusive and accessible candidate experience and offer the ability to request accommodations during the process.
