Striving for equity

Taking action

Committed to change

Diversity

We are committed to building alliances and to sustaining an ecosystem where diversity is our reality. Respecting and appreciating what makes each of us unique is our strength.

Inclusion

We know people produce their best work when they are valued, are treated fairly, and can be themselves without covering to fit in. This is inclusion, and we believe it strengthens our ability to better serve our clients.

Equity

We are working to deliver access and opportunity. With the help of our Executive Board and leaders across the bank, we want Credit Suisse to be a place where we can all taste success.

Belonging

We all experience the world and challenges differently – so do our clients. We are working to ensure our people feel welcome, seen, heard, and valued, just as they are. That sense of belonging fuels our creativity and innovation.

Our Next Generation Networks bring together young colleagues to accelerate career progress and leadership capabilities through personal development opportunities, networking with peers, exposure to senior management, and volunteerism for impact in our communities.

Our LGBTQ+ & ally networks support an open and inclusive environment.

Our networks seek to raise awareness of racial, ethnic and cultural diversity and its importance to our employees and our business. This includes sustaining an inclusive environment, supporting professional development, and fostering network sponsorship by senior leadership.

Inclusive of all gender identities, our networks contribute to the firm-wide dialogue on gender equality and its implementation. Empowering women by providing opportunities for development, fostering valuable connections, and facilitating member success through business and career growth. 

Our network brings together veterans, and the families, friends and supporters of those who have served, to increase awareness of veteran causes through volunteer opportunities, engage speakers on crucial topics, and showcase the value of their military leadership abilities as veterans transition to the corporate sector.
