At Bloomberg, our formula is Diversity + Inclusion = Innovation.

Bloomberg’s diverse workforce and open culture are essential to innovation, which is the key to our success. Diversity means the innumerable ways in which we are different, and inclusion means that those differences are leveraged. Simply stated, our success is driven by extreme diversity of thought.

Our Diversity and Inclusion (D&I) strategy harnesses both the power of our employees’ demographic diversity and our inclusive culture to yield optimal business results. Fully valuing the contributions of all employees enables us to capitalize on the strength and competitiveness of our company. As Bloomberg’s global client base becomes increasingly diverse, with emerging markets the fastest growing segment, our focus on diversity and inclusion will help us stay attuned and open to our clients’ rich and varied cultures, norms, and business practices.
