What We’re Listening to

 “And our liberty, too, is endangered if we pause for the passing moment, if we rest on our achievements, if we resist the pace of progress. For time and the world do not stand still. Change is the law of life. And those who look only to the past or the present are certain to miss the future.”
– JFK

Ridgeway Partners Diversity Statement

By Press Releases

The events that have recently occurred in the US have further highlighted to us the systemic racism that persists across the world.

At Ridgeway Partners we do not tolerate any form of discrimination or harassment of any kind. We firmly believe that there is no place for racism or inequality in our society and as an organisation we continue to actively challenge and stand against both. We never assume or judge and we believe that active listening and acceptance is the way to share insight. Respect is the key to equality.

As an employer and board adviser, we continue to educate ourselves to identify and prevent bias. We also continue to support and advise clients on diversity, equality and inclusion.

Ridgeway Partners remains deeply committed to our role in promoting diversity and inclusion in the workplace, in the boardroom and beyond.

Leadership in the Digital Age

By Insights

Technology is “digitizing” the world around us. As Michael Baresich, Chief Information Officer at Ally Financial Group puts it: “Every company is either a technology company or a technology company in hiding.” What’s remarkable is the exponential rate of this growth: the modern cell phone has more computer power than all of NASA did in 1969 when it placed men on the moon. Going further into the past, the modern-day audio greeting card has more computer power than that of the Allied Army in World War II.
