Diversity and Inclusion: What’s driving D&I at BNY Mellon?

BNY Mellon conducts business and delivers services across geographic and jurisdictional borders. Our employees must be able to work effectively on cross-cultural teams and move seamlessly across borders to meet client needs. A diverse workforce generates more ideas and delivers more robust solutions, leading to greater success for our company.

Our vision for global diversity and inclusion is to promote a respectful environment that leverages diversity and recognizes and advances top talent through a culture of meritocracy. We are focused on advancing diversity in our leadership ranks, across the workforce and through our suppliers of professional services. We have made measurable progress with respect to diversity and inclusion over the past several years, with a significant number of proactive mechanisms and actions:

– Our Global Diversity and Inclusion Council, led by our Chairman and CEO, has championed diversity and inclusion programs and emphasized accountability for company-wide diversity efforts.

– Since 2009, every employee has had a diversity and inclusion goal in his or her annual performance plan.

– We measure progress on diversity and inclusion through a variety of quantitative and qualitative mechanisms.

– Global communications, including our Diversity & Inclusion Matters newsletter, educate and raise awareness of our policies and programs to all employees.

– Our global recognition programs spotlight exceptional diversity and inclusion practices and contributions by employees or teams.

In 2012, we saw further progress. We named Jyoti Chopra our new Global Head of Diversity and Inclusion; engaged with regional executive teams to develop customized diversity strategies and plans for our EMEA and Asia-Pacific regions; and launched our Unconscious Bias diversity training program. We also engaged in a number of initiatives in the U.S. and UK to train and develop returning military personnel for reentry into the civilian workforce, and successfully recruited a number of additional returning military members to BNY Mellon.

BNY Mellon is committed to continuing to develop a workforce that closely mirrors our surrounding communities. For our current U.S. workforce demographics, see our GRI index.
