Inclusion and diversity are key to our success. By fully leveraging our diverse experiences, backgrounds and insights, we can inspire innovation, challenge the status quo and create better outcomes for our people and our clients. We challenge ourselves—and each other—to collectively raise our game. Diversity strengthens us; we know that our best solutions come from the contributions of a group of talented and smart people, each playing a unique and critical role. BlackRock is committed to cultivating and advancing diversity in all forms because we believe a wide range of perspectives and talent is crucial to creating a richer culture for our employees and a greater experience for our diversified global client base.
Senior business leaders make sure that all employees in their groups understand why diversity is important for success and equip them with tools and knowledge to foster inclusion. We have made inclusive leadership and management a core leadership competency. We are dedicated to fostering an inclusive, collaborative culture where every voice is heard, where people at every level of the organization can develop their expertise, make an impact, and build their careers.
As a signatory of HM Treasury’s Women in Finance Charter, which seeks to build a more balanced and diverse financial services industry, BlackRock is committed to achieving 30% female representation in senior management by 2020.
Furthermore BlackRock is delighted to be partners of the TARGETJobs ‘IT’s not just for the boys’ programme, to encourage talented young women to be a part of the next generation of technology leaders.
