Putnam DEI Fellowship

In May 2021, we developed the Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) Fellowship.

The DEI fellow is a Putnam employee who has one of their projects working on incorporating DEI into the firm’s strategy.

The goals of the fellowship are to:

  • Create structure around DEI, while maintaining Putnam culture by allowing firm engagement and interest to drive DEI development

  • Recruit diverse, global talent to ensure a wide range of perspectives are represented

  • Educate employees on topical issues related to DEI to ensure Putnam is an inclusive firm for all current and future employees
