Hiring the best people. Helping them make the most of their talents. Working together in an atmosphere of integrity and mutual respect. That's Schwab. And that's what sets us apart.
True to our vision and values here at Schwab, we believe that diversity and inclusion foster wealth. We define wealth as reaching beyond the creation of financial security. Wealth is also quality of life, the totality of each of our experiences, and the fulfillment of our dreams. Schwab's definition of diversity transcends race and is partly attributed to our emphasis on inclusion - recognizing and valuing our differences. To this end, diversity and inclusion are woven into the fabric of our company. We invite you to experience us and to understand our vision - the Schwab beyond the verbiage, the accolades and the notoriety. Although we are proud of our accomplishments in this area so far, we continue to set new standards in enhancing our employees' work environment, our clients' experiences and our community outreach. Our goal is simple: we will raise the bar on Inclusion in every aspect of our business.
