About BlackRock

BlackRock is a global investment firm trusted to manage more assets than any other. Our clients are companies, governments, foundations and millions of individuals saving for retirement, including firefighters, teachers and more. Our clients come from around the world and from all walks of life, and we are passionate about helping them build a strong financial future – which means that our workforce must reflect a diversity of perspectives and insights to solve the unique and complex challenges they face.

While we have offices across more than 30 countries, we operate as “One BlackRock,” and every single employee plays a critical role. No one group or location is more important than another. We thrive on collaboration, mutual trust and respect, and we challenge ourselves and each other to collectively raise our game.

We already know that the best solutions result from the ideas and contributions of a diverse team of partners, and that more diverse teams tend to outperform homogeneous ones. But beyond building a diverse workforce, we help ensure that each and every employee feels included and that they’re a part of the BlackRock community.
