Sara Piccollo is the definition of a rising star, rapidly climbing the ladder at PIMCO in her nine years at the company. After joining PIMCO as an entry-level learning and development coordinator in 2006, Piccollo worked her way up the global investment management firm to become head of diversity and inclusion.-

Piccollo, 33, has been a key player in developing PIMCO’s diversity and inclusion strategy, implementing unconscious bias training, offering incentives for inclusive leadership and ensuring that all employees are involved in the company dialogue about diversity. Recently, Piccollo led the design and launch of PIMCO Parents, an initiative focused on mothers and fathers.

A champion of diversity of thought, Piccollo works constantly to prove the truth of PIMCO’s diversity and inclusion philosophy: Diverse teams create better business results.
