From the Company

Inclusion amplifies our team’s potential, superior business performance and enables us to make a profound impact. As market leaders in exponential risks, we know that true success emerges from inclusion and we recognize the value that every employee’s experiences and perspective brings to the table. We know people work best when they feel heard, valued and respected. Because when every voice is heard, we reach more intelligent decisions. This commitment to an inclusive culture isn’t simply good practice—it’s the future we’re building.

Our inclusion strategy includes five focus areas:

  • A Broader, More Global Perspective on Diversity: We want everyone, everywhere, to be equally involved and supported in all areas of our workplace.
  • Success and Growth of Women: We’re committed to the success and growth of all our employees, including women, by creating pathways for women to grow at Moody’s.
  • BRGs as Cultural Ambassadors: We understand the value our Business Resource Groups (BRGs) bring to our organization—they help drive our culture.
  • Pay Equity and Inclusive Benefits: We continue to increase transparency and clarity when it comes to pay and inclusive benefits.
  • Awareness and Education: We’re committed to continuously finding opportunities to educate ourselves in a constantly changing world.
