Our Commitment to Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion

At Trive, we recognize the success of our firm, portfolio, and investors depends on our team’s exchange of ideas—an exchange that is strongest when there is diversity of perspectives, experiences, and backgrounds. To achieve this, our mission is to create a culture where diversity, equity, and inclusion are valued, recognized, and embedded into our DNA through implementation of thoughtful, innovative, and continuously improving strategies that will ultimately attract, retain, and engage the best team members.
