Responsibility / Social Engagement

Empowering Our Communities

We support the diverse communities in which we live and work – it’s core to who we are. Through investing in job training, increasing access to education and supporting the arts, we are proud stewards of a variety of organizations, and we are committed to creating opportunities for all people, regardless of race, ethnicity, culture, gender or sexual orientation.

Building Momentum

Diversity, Equity and Inclusion

To further our goal of cultivating a workforce rich in different backgrounds, we collaborate with our network of companies to strengthen diversity, equity and inclusion initiatives across our portfolio.


Prioritize our people and culture, fostering an environment where all employees are welcome, and each person is positioned to be their best self. Through our values, practices and recruiting pipeline, we focus on creating an equitable and inclusive firm.


Lead the industry by modeling how corporations can effectively build and foster diverse workforces and inclusive cultures while driving corporate accountability across our private equity and permanent capital portfolio.


Open channels of access and inclusion through business engagement opportunities; examine activities with partners through a DE&I outlook and participate in industry initiatives and groups that move our DE&I mandate forward.


Support and partner with nonprofit organizations by investing in communities and developing the next generation of leaders in finance and technology.

Helping to Close the Opportunity Gap

We strive to create opportunities for individuals who have traditionally been underrepresented in finance, including women, African American, Native American and Latinx candidates. Vista supports the advancement of educational opportunities for all, and helps strengthen our shared communities by supporting foundations advancing a variety of causes, including:

  • Arts

  • Sciences and Education

  • Regional Communities

  • Healthcare

  • Racial Equality

  • Social and Criminal Justice

  • Nature and Conservation
