Diversity & Inclusion
We build talented and diverse teams to drive business results. Talent comes from all cultures, countries, races, genders, sexual orientations, abilities, beliefs, backgrounds and experiences. We create respectful and inclusive environments where people can thrive. Inclusion and diversity help Deutsche Bank strengthen relationships with our clients, our partners, and the communities in which we operate.
Deutsche Bank has made several public commitments demonstrating our commitment to diversity and inclusion. We are a founding member and signatory of the Charta der Vielfalt in Germany, Women in Finance Charter in the UK, Charter de la Diversidad in Spain, and the Charte de la Diversite in Luxembourg. We made a voluntary declaration alongside other DAX-30 companies to substantially increase the representation of women, with a special focus on senior managers.
We recognize the need to accelerate progress on diversity and inclusion and we have developed a variety of programs, practices, and policies to help us do this. We believe the key to success is embedding inclusion and diversity principles in every aspect of the employee lifecycle. Our leaders are actively engaged in our efforts to attract and develop a diverse workforce.
Our employee resource groups (ERGs) play a central role in connecting people, helping us learn from other experiences, and identifying new solutions. ERGs are voluntary, cross-divisional, employee-led groups created to accelerate the advancement of employees from traditionally underrepresented groups, allies who support those groups, and people who share a common purpose, interest or background. Depending on location, ERGs have been created for the advancement of the following communities at Deutsche Bank: differently-abled, families, generations, LGBTQI, multicultural/people of color, veterans, and women.
