Swiss Private Equity Firm Sued by Woman Who Complained About Racist Slurs

  • Partners Group says claims are “cynically misrepresented”
  • ‘Let’s not create a paper trail,’ HR executive said in email

A Black former employee at Partners Group Holding AG is suing the Swiss private equity firm for $10 million over claims she was forced out of the company after complaining about a senior colleague’s alleged racist slurs. 

Harmonie Mulumba, who spent two years as a Goldman Sachs Group Inc. analyst, says she was unfairly pushed out in July 2018 following her complaints despite performing well during her time in Partners Group’s associate program.
