Our DEI Framework


Three pillars organize our DEI efforts: Access, Commitment and Engagement (ACE).

  • Access: The System provides access and opportunities to underrepresented groups by identifying and minimizing barriers to open and equitable processes.
  • Commitment: Through the efforts of the DEI Committee and other stakeholders, the System is committed to DEI initiatives and processes to help drive the best investment outcomes for our beneficiaries.
  • Engagement: The System engages with external entities on relevant issues through an active ownership and an outreach program to support DEI initiatives.
