Continuous Learning

We actively seek to understand and address unconscious bias, and we embrace ongoing learning and development opportunities to build a more inclusive culture. Alger employees are required to attend and complete annual Diversity Awareness Training to enhance their knowledge. To fulfill this responsibility, the Firm provides employee training, which covers topics such as DEI, Unconscious Bias, Micro-Aggressions in the Workplace, and Harassment and Discrimination Prevention, among others. Each year, the Alger Human Resources Department evaluates our program to ensure effectiveness and makes adjustments to provide employees with the most impactful training.
