Diversity and inclusion are not just feel-good corporate buzz words. Our global workforce is already diverse in many ways, and we consider this a competitive strength.
At the same time, we want to further increase our diversity and ensure an inclusive workplace, because both are key to achieving our goals.
Our employee networks are inclusive groups which are open to everyone at UBS, representing diverse elements such as gender, culture, mental health, life stage and sexual orientation.
