Our approach and strategy

At Credit Suisse, we recognize that our identities are complex and varied and we believe that people are not defined by one characteristic, including age, gender identity, race, ethnicity, physical and mental ability, belief, sexual orientation, style, work experience, education, marital and parental status, and even organizational dimensions like location and department. Our strategy focuses on advancing diversity and inclusion across our ecosystem of workplace, marketplace and community to make true progress. In the workplace, we are devoted to developing a diverse and sustainable talent pipeline, enhancing career development opportunities and driving inclusive and equitable behaviors through learning programs. In the marketplace, we strive to be a responsible partner to our clients and investors, supporting their diversity and inclusion ambitions and work with regulatory and monitoring bodies to meet industry standards. We continue to leverage our platform and resources to help advance diversity, equity and inclusion in the communities in which we operate through partnerships and philanthropic activities. Our internal and external work is rooted in a strong foundation of transparent metrics, regular communication, policies, governance and accountability, which we believe can drive systemic change for sustainable progress.
