Jordana Semaan on Diversity, Equity and Inclusion

Since 1982, DEI was at the heart of Investcorp’s foundation. Today, approximately 500 employees from 45 nationalities uphold this culture. 

DEI Pillars

Our primary goal is not only to attract individuals of different backgrounds & experiences, but also to provide them an opportunity to feel safe, grow and feel a sense of belonging within Investcorp. A values-grounded and diverse set of talent helps us become better leaders for tomorrow. Through an open, inclusive, and diverse culture, we are able to bridge gaps through mutual understanding, transparency, and dialogue.

We are creating and evolving industry-competitive policies that support our employees’ well-being with healthcare, wellness, and flexibility. More comprehensive and clearer policy makes us more accountable to our goals over the long-term and creates a healthier culture.

Employees undergo all types of training – teamwork, leadership, communication, networking, and DEI inclusion – on an annual basis. Workshops are held internally to strengthen awareness and inform better DEI tactics. Expanding an employee’s skillsets will aid their career growth.

Employee Resource Groups


Established in 2021, IWill is Investcorp’s female focused affinity group which brings together women to collaborate, innovate and exchange ideas and experiences across our global offices. We host monthly meetings in each office and quarterly on a global scale. IWill seeks to provide career development opportunities, mentorship, guest speakers and more.


GEN-I aims to empower and uplift our young professionals, enabling them to explore avenues for both professional and personal growth. This group will provide a supportive network, collaborative opportunities, and essential resources to help them unlock their full potential.

  1. Supportive Network: Fostering collaboration and building meaningful connections.
  2. Essential Resources: Equipping members with workshops, mentors, and industry expertise.
  3. Amplified Voices: Encouraging diverse perspectives and enriching the company culture. 


The Investcorp Inspire Mentorship program was launched in January 2023 to allow our global employees to network globally, to develop as emerging leaders, and promote diversity of thought. The mentor and mentees are matched based on interests and are ideally located in different geographies and lines of business.

Memberships & Affiliations

As part of our DEI journey, we value partnering with organizations that not only focus on Diversity, but also on a shared view of equality, inclusion and belonging. Our partners are an extension of our pillars and with them we collectively continue to make a positive impact in this space.


Nemir Kirdar Global
Internship Program

In 2022, we launched a global internship program honoring our founder’s legacy, the Nemir Kirdar Global Internship Program. The 10-week journey immerses talented young minds from the US, Europe, GCC, and Asia in the heart of Investcorp’s diverse businesses.

Responsible Business

We launched this year’s Responsible Growth Report, demonstrating our commitment to incorporating Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) principles into our business strategies. One of the key aspects of ESG reporting is diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI), which reflects how we foster a culture of respect, belonging and empowerment for all our stakeholders. DEI is not only a moral imperative, but also a competitive advantage that can drive innovation, productivity and profitability. In this report, we will present our DEI achievements, challenges and initiatives, as well as our future plans to advance this critical dimension of our ESG strategy.
