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 have made inclusive leadership and management a core leadership competency. Since 2015, more than 2,500 managers and leaders globally participated in 'Driving Better Decisions', an initiative that helps leaders and managers understand how unconscious bias works and, most importantly, provides concrete tools and guidance on how to take action to mitigate bias in key people and business decisions. 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. Additionally, BlackRock are this year's partners of the TARGETJobs ‘IT’s not just for the boys’ program, to encourage talented young women to be a part of the next generation of technology leaders.
