Diversity and Inclusion

A Message from our CEO about Diversity and Inclusion

A Values-Based Commitment That Works for All of Us

At BNY Mellon, diversity and inclusion are a top business priority, consistent with our values of Client Focus, Integrity, Teamwork and Excellence. Building a vibrant culture of inclusion is just good business. It creates a stronger, smarter and more successful company.

As a global company with offices, employees and clients around the world, we operate across cultures and serve a broadly diverse client base. Our employee population is equally diverse. To help them succeed, we've worked hard to cultivate a culture that seeks out and welcomes diversity in all its dimensions.

As you'll discover by reading further, we strive to support all of our employees — regardless of age, race, gender, color, national origin, sexual orientation, sexual identity or disability — with robust, relevant programs to ensure everyone has an equal opportunity to excel.

Personally, I'm absolutely certain that the diversity of our workforce makes us more perceptive and more creative. Our wealth of experience and viewpoints helps us deliver the best, most innovative solutions to our clients. And our diversity helps ensure that each employee has every opportunity to contribute his or her best work — and to be recognized and rewarded for that performance.

By opening the doors to opportunity for all our employees, everyone benefits: our company, our shareholders, our clients and, ultimately, each and every one of us. Imagine the possibilities!

Gerald Hassell, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer
