We support our community.

Community Involvement

Supporting and improving the communities where our employees and clients live and work is a decades-long tradition for us. Whether we are providing financial support, employee volunteers, board members or mentors to local and national civic and charitable organizations, the goal is the same – to make a difference. Our commitment to the community is an essential part of who we are.

Commitment to Diversity

Fostering a community of diversity and inclusion is one of our core values and a part of our overall business strategy. We firmly believe that as our workforce, suppliers, and vendors become more diverse, we become better. The variety of personal experiences, values and worldviews that arise from differences of culture and circumstance are a foundation for our continued success. Employing and retaining a talented and diverse workforce as well as ensuring that the organizations with whom we partner are a reflection of our commitment to diversity, is not only the right thing to do, but also expands our ability to deliver excellent service to our clients.

We view the UNPRI as a high-level framework for appropriately considering Environmental, Social and Corporate Governance (ESG) issues in the investment process. We believe we are setting an industry standard by having Grosvenor Capital Management, L.P. as a UNPRI signatory as we seek to set higher standards of responsible investment and business practice.

    fun people in a growing department

    Former Employee - Computer Science Intern in Chicago, IL
    Former Employee - Computer Science Intern in Chicago, IL

    I worked at GCM Grosvenor as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    I got to work on my own project as well as work with a team on the applications they were developing. Everyone was so willing to help me whenever I needed it.

    Cons

    The internship program in the software dev department is still in its infancy; there were organizational roadblocks that could've made things easier.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It would have been nice if I were allowed to indicate what type of software development I'm interested in working on; they just placed me wherever they wanted with whatever projects they wanted. Obviously I want to contribute the best I can but receiving some more of my feedback would have been nice.
