Diversity and Inclusion

Our diversity makes us stronger—and helps ensure our success.

At FINRA, we're committed to fostering an inclusive and diverse workplace. Our goal is to ensure that every employee has the opportunity to thrive and contribute their unique talents to our organization. Why? Because our diversity—meaning our backgrounds, education, cultures, thinking styles and unique perspectives—is a driving force behind our ability to effectively carry out FINRA's mission of investor protection and market integrity.

When we work together, we're stronger. And each of us is responsible for making that happen. Building an inclusive culture means taking the time to consider and appreciate each other's differences. This is important for everyone at FINRA—regardless of job function or level. Our combined abilities and backgrounds are what make FINRA strong


“At FINRA, we are committed to fostering a diverse and inclusive workplace for all employees. This commitment is based on our core values and is also the most effective way to achieve our goals as an organization. Our diversity and inclusion programs help our employees reach their highest potential—which, in turn, helps FINRA fulfill its mission of investor protection and market integrity.”

–FINRA President and CEO Robert W. Cook
