Power of people through diversity

We know that transparency is key

Our aspirational goals state our clear intention to increase representation of women and ethnic minorities, especially in leadership positions. We hold ourselves accountable for delivering against those goals using a data-driven approach spanning our hiring, development and belonging activities.

We’re providing investment solutions that reflect women’s values

Our Global Gender Equality ETF, which features in an Equileap gender diversity index, makes it possible to invest in an index of 100 global companies with strong records in gender diversity and sustainability. This fund dedicated 5% of its management fees for 2022 to philanthropic projects via UBS Optimus Foundation Network in support of United Nations Sustainable Development Goal 5 to achieve gender equality and empower all women and girls.

We’re delivering solutions for ethnically diverse clients

In 2022, we launched our Inclusive Investing Solutions offering in the US and trained more than 1,000 financial advisors and field leaders to address growing client demand for investment solutions that support DE&I and align to the personal stories and experiences of ethnically diverse investors. Moreover, our Multicultural Investors Segment gives such investors a platform to grow, manage and preserve their wealth.

We take pay equity seriously

Fair and consistent pay practices are designed to ensure that employees are appropriately rewarded for their contribution. Since 2020, we have been certified under the EQUAL-SALARY Foundation standards for our human resources practices in Switzerland, the US, the UK, the Hong Kong SAR and Singapore, covering more than two-thirds of our global employee population. We fulfill our mandatory UK Gender Pay Gap reporting obligations and voluntarily disclose ethnicity pay gap information for this location.

We committed ourselves to the Valuable 500 and are delivering on that promise

The Valuable 500 brings together innovators who support disability inclusion. UBS champions disability inclusion through tangible action, so what did we do in 2022 and how are we holding ourselves accountable? And what does a day in the life of a User Experience Accessibility Consultant at UBS actually involve?
