Fostering bright ideas through diversity and inclusion
As a global company, we embrace diversity and inclusion. We value the diversity of our employees, customers, vendors and communities. From supplier diversity to workplace diversity and inclusion, to support for our diverse communities, we make diversity and inclusion a competitive advantage. Because at BBVA, creating opportunities through inclusion means a brighter future for all.
At BBVA workplace diversity and inclusion is a priority. We appreciate and embrace the inherent uniqueness of everyone. We value our similarities and differences, including diversity of thought, and recognize that people have unique backgrounds, characteristics, experiences, ideas, beliefs, motivations and choices, all of which add value to our organization.
We foster a culture of inclusion and we continuously explore ways to leverage diversity and inclusion to create an environment in which everyone feels welcomed, heard, valued, and respected.
We demonstrate our commitment to diversity and inclusion in everything we do. To that end, we strive to attract, hire and retain a group of talented people to help achieve our purpose, to create opportunities by blending the best that each of us has to offer.
BBVA is honored to be recognized as one of DiversityInc's 2017 Top 50 Companies for Diversity. Our commitment to workforce and supplier diversity allows us to fully represent the clients and businesses we serve.
At BBVA, we support supplier diversity. We are committed to identifying and expanding effective business partnerships with diverse suppliers. We believe this is not only the right thing to do, but it’s smart business.
We established the BBVA Supplier Diversity Program and have a dedicated team focused on promoting the advancement of diverse spending throughout the United States and abroad. Our long-term goal is to make substantial gains in developing strategic alliances with minority and women-owned businesses in a wide range of categories – supporting BBVA’s business infrastructure.
BBVA received a perfect score of 100 percent on the 2018 Corporate Equality Index, a measure of workplace equality for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer employees that serves as a benchmark for some of the country’s largest and most influential workplaces. This caps a remarkable drive as we work to build a workforce that fully reflects the clients and businesses we serve.
At BBVA, we partner with diverse communities in an effort to make them better. Our hope is that as our organization flourishes, so will the communities around us. We believe our community involvement, whether through financial gifts, volunteerism or other support, should be accessible to all and reflect our organization's vision of a better future for all people.
We put a premium on being diverse and inclusive in every corner of our business because we know that it’s not only the right thing to do, it’s also smart business. It allows us to attract the most creative thinkers, the most innovative suppliers, and it gives us a competitive advantage in today’s age of opportunity.
