Diversity, equity and inclusion

We are working toward a more diverse, equitable and inclusive company and society.

Our DE&I efforts aim to drive positive impact across our workforce, workplace, customers and communities. We believe a workforce that includes an array of backgrounds and experiences helps create an environment that maximizes every employee’s contribution, widens the leadership pipeline and enhances our work, including the quality of our opinions, products and services.

Our workforce

Our business benefits from the inclusion of many different perspectives. That is why we actively promote diversity at every level of Moody’s. We work hard so that all employees, from new hires to senior leaders, feel respected, included and empowered.

Our workplace

We encourage our employees to bring their authentic selves to work and thrive on their unique path to success. This starts with creating an inclusive culture, where all employees are heard, valued and empowered.

We are committed to paying all of our employees equitably and fairly. We study pay equity annually to identify any areas in the company where women or, in the U.S., racial / ethnic underrepresented groups, are not paid comparably to their peers.
