Diversity, Equity & Inclusion

Our philosophy

Meet Matt, VP - Portfolio Manager
Matt remarks on BlackRock’s inclusive culture, and how it’s crucial to have a diverse workforce.

Our philosophy of working as One BlackRock is at the core of our commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) across every level of our firm and within every region and country we operate – across gender, race, ethnicity, disability and veteran status, among others.

At BlackRock, DEI is a business imperative. We know that a diverse workforce is indispensable to our creativity and success. It’s how we answer the biggest questions and solve the toughest problems.

An inclusive, equitable environment makes us thrive. It enables us to draw on expertise and unique experiences from across the firm and bring out the best in each other.

Talent - Our talent and culture across the globe. Attract, develop and retain a diverse talent pipeline. Foster an inclusive and connected culture.

Clients - Supporting our clients. Provide a range of choices to meet our clients’ DEI objectives alongside other investment objectives. Deepen external business relationships.

Communities - Impact in underserved communities. Invest, through BlackRock philanthropy, in the long-term success and sustainability of underserved communities.

Our approach to hiring

We seek to hire diverse teams because we believe they lead to better decision-making, especially in complex, changing environments. To do that, we regularly review job postings for biased language, champion diverse candidate slates and use a competency-based approach to interviewing.

Our employee networks

Our global networks are dynamic communities built on shared experiences, intersectionality and allyship. They are culture carriers for the firm, offering employees and allies the opportunity to enhance and shape the inclusive culture to which we aspire.  Employee networks are sponsored by senior leaders and are proudly designed by employees, for employees.

Our first network, the Women’s Initiative & Allies Network (WIN), was established in 2006. Today, we have 15 employee, professional, and impact networks which come together in a forum called Mosaic – to identify and explore shared interests and common challenges across all networks and the firm. We continue to add new networks to support our employees.
