Deutsche Bank Publishes EEO-1 Diversity Data, Commits To Continued Transparency

Deutsche Bank (XETRA: DBKGn.DB / NYSE: DB) today publishes its annual summary of its submission to the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, voluntarily disclosing U.S. regional diversity statistics. The data will also be published in annual HR and Non-Financial Reports going forward.

“Diversity and inclusion are key success factors for Deutsche Bank and many of its clients, but oftentimes opaque disclosures hinder progress and shirk accountability,” said Robert Dibble, Head of Human Resources for the Americas. “The data voluntarily published today reflects our commitment to transparency and, ultimately, a more diverse Wall Street.”

To accelerate progress in the U.S., Deutsche Bank undertook seven actions to progress racial and ethnic diversity over seven months last year. This included changes in hiring practices and embedding goals in performance scorecards, which rapidly diversified Deutsche Bank’s early talent pipeline.

The regional graduate hire class for 2021 is 41% women and 10% Black, up significantly from last year, with a 13 and 6 percentage point increase respectively. This summer’s intern class, where the majority of graduate hires originate, is also far more diverse than last year at 45% women and 15% Black. This reflects a 7 and 8 percentage point increase versus prior year respectively.

Additional goals for Deutsche Bank globally include increasing women representation to at least 35% of Deutsche Bank’s Managing Director, Director and Vice President population by 2025, and at least 30% women in the positions one and two levels below the Management Board.
