State Street is one of the world's leading providers of financial services to institutional investors, including investment servicing, investment management and investment research and trading.

Commitment to diversity

Inclusion and diversity are strategic imperatives at State Street.

As a global company, what we value most about our more than 29,000 employees are the qualities that make them unique — their experiences, interests and capabilities. Global Inclusion is our company-wide effort to ensure that every one of our employees feels engaged and valued by recognizing and utilizing their unique talents and perspectives.

State Street is proud to be a member of Pride at Work Canada and to actively support our LGBT employees in the workplace through our employee network, State Street PRIDE. Championed by our local management team, members are encouraged to network and pursue continued professional development, while cultivating and sharing their perspective across the company.

Vision for the future

Our inclusion and diversity efforts will continue to evolve and remain a strategic priority for 2012 and beyond. We believe that inclusion enables us to harness the many benefits that diversity brings—myriad perspectives, greater innovation resulting in unique and meaningful client connections, and increased motivation and engagement of our employees. We’re committed to working closely with our employee networks to expand the important message of diversity and inclusion.

At State Street, we believe that when we respect all individuals, we create an environment where every employee feels supported, valued and engaged. It’s also one of the reasons why we’re recognized as an employer of choice. We also realize that a more inclusive and diverse workforce better enables us to understand our ever-evolving business — ensuring we’re always providing the best service to our clients.
