Diversity Champion

Broadridge Financial Solutions

Fintech company Employees:10,000+ AUM:N/A

Broadridge CEO Rich Daly has spearheaded his firm's efforts to increase diversity and inclusion. He initiated the Broadridge Inclusive Pledge, which promises to build on existing efforts to increase diversity, to ensure hiring and promotion practices to reduce unconscious bias and structural barriers, and to incorporate diverse representation.

"For Broadridge to be successful, our associates must reflect the diversity of the financial industry we serve, and the communities and cultures in which we operate," said Frieda Lewis, chief commercial diversity officer at Broadridge.

The firm formed its first employee resource group, the Women's Leadership Forum, in 2010. Two more followed: Leading Broadridge to Greater Awareness for LGBTQ employees and allies, and the Multi-Cultural Associate Network.

An Executive Diversity Committee and a separate Inclusion Board track the company's progress and commitments in diversity and inclusion. Broadridge has been named one of the "Best Places to Work for LGBTQ Equality" for five consecutive years by the Human Rights Campaign Foundation.

The firm gives more than 24,000 diverse students across New York City and Long Island access to the Stock Market Game, an educational tool for increasing math skills and financial awareness.
