Diversity & Inclusion: We’re on it.

We know that a business that nurtures diversity of people and perspective delivers higher performance. That’s why we are taking bold action to increase representation and build an organization where all people feel included.

In­clu­sion dri­ves high per­for­mance

We know our col­leagues need to feel like they be­long to be able to pro­duce their best work. In­clu­sion is es­sen­tial to har­ness­ing every­one’s skills so we de­liv­er as a busi­ness. En­sur­ing that every­one feels free to bring their whole self to work is cen­tral to fo­cus­ing our en­er­gy on per­for­mance.

Di­verse per­spec­tives de­liv­er for our clients

Sus­tain­able so­lu­tions and in­no­va­tion grow from di­verse per­spec­tives. By max­i­miz­ing the breadth and depth of view­points we can rely on to de­vel­op prod­ucts, ser­vices and re­search, we can spot risks and op­por­tu­ni­ties ear­ly and serve our clients bet­ter.

Play­ing our part for an eq­ui­table econ­o­my

By striv­ing to give back, we cre­ate pos­i­tive so­cial im­pact and con­tribute to the com­mu­ni­ties where we op­er­ate. Through phil­an­thropy, em­ploy­ee en­gage­ment and pub­lic pol­i­cy ad­vo­ca­cy, we seek to play our part to widen ac­cess and ad­vance in­clu­sion so that more peo­ple can par­tic­i­pate in an eq­ui­table econ­o­my.

Inclusion is at the heart of a sustainable business

“We want to make sure that everyone feels a sense of belonging in the workplace. Prioritizing inclusion contributes to our success by helping our colleagues focus their talents on business challenges, not on overcoming disadvantage.”

How we build a sustainable talent pipeline

We are on a mission to build a sustainable talent pipeline and to make healthy communities a core part of our business strategy. To help us do this, we have elevated our global D&I function to report to two Executive Board members. This reflects a mandate that is tied not only to Human Resources but also embedded in our new Sustainability, Research & Investment Solutions function.

A high-performing organization relies on diverse perspectives and inclusive culture

We have committed to investing in talent programs and partnerships that improve access and widen opportunity, so we can build a sustainable workforce that mirrors the society we serve.
