Schwab's Diversity and Inclusion Commitment

Diversity and Inclusion are a way of life at Schwab, transcending ethnicity, race, color, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, national origin, age, disability, protected veteran status, and life stages to include diversity of experiences, strengths, perspectives, and thought.

Our commitment to building an inclusive environment where everyone feels valued is what sets us apart. Schwab is dedicated to building and maintaining a dynamic organization and culture that reflect the individual strengths of every person who is a part of the company. Through diversity we gain a wider range of perspectives and experiences, which benefits everyone and helps us ‘see through clients’ eyes.’ And by seeing our business through the eyes of our clients, we are able to deliver the best client experience possible.

Read a message from our CEO about Why Everyone Counts

We believe that talent comes in a broad spectrum of human qualities and strengths. Inclusion is the core of who we are, that is why we seek diversity of thought and perspective and honor individuality, strengths, and experiences.

Our Diversity and Inclusion initiatives focus on:
