Diversity, Equity and Inclusion

Calamos Investments is committed to fostering, cultivating and preserving a culture of diversity, equity and inclusion.

Human capital is one of the most valuable assets of the firm. The many contributions of our associates are enhanced by their individual differences, life experiences, educations, and unique capabilities. We encourage our associates to both express and draw upon their differences.

Calamos Investments’ diversity, equity and inclusion initiatives impact recruitment, professional development and training, social programs, and a general work environment built on the premise of both intellectual and experiential diversity, which are promoted by encouraging:

  • Respectful communication and cooperation among all associates;
  • Teamwork and robust associate participation; and
  • Associate and firm contributions to the communities we serve.

To support our commitment to diversity, equity and inclusion, Calamos requires all associates to complete annual diversity awareness training to enhance their awareness and knowledge. Additionally, we promote communication, understanding and career opportunities in a variety of ways, including diversity, equity and inclusion focus groups, lunch and learns and leadership development programs.
