Our business benefits from having many different perspectives. That’s why we actively promote diversity at every level of Moody’s. We work hard to ensure that all employees, from company leaders to new hires, are respected, included and empowered. 

In 2017, Moody’s Corporation President and CEO Raymond W. McDaniel, Jr., was one of the first CEOs in financial services to sign the CEO Action for Diversity & Inclusion™ pledge (ceoaction.com/the-pledge), which outlines the actions that we and other signatories are taking to cultivate a more inclusive workplace.

Manager training

To ensure that company management approaches diversity thoughtfully and thoroughly, we required managers to attend at least two diversity and inclusion programs in 2017. That year, we introduced Conversations to Understand, a series that helped managers learn more about the experiences of African Americans, Hispanics and people of South Asian descent in the United States and other countries. During the sessions, employees shared how they’ve experienced unconscious bias outside of Moody’s. These conversations increased awareness on topics such as Islamophobia, the transgender community, and racial and cultural issues, and the sessions helped expand the conversation around unconscious bias and how it can play out for different groups.
