Our inclusive environment
Inclusion and diversity represent thought leadership and a passion for knowledge from different perspectives to achieve maximum results.
Home Office Inclusion Mentoring Program
Encouraging cross-cultural development of mentor relationships to create learning opportunities
This program was created to foster mentoring relationships. It encourages cross-cultural development of mentor and mentee relationships to create an opportunity for both parties to learn more about each other and their cultures.
The mentors are encouraged to learn about their mentees' work styles, their strengths and development needs in terms of career strategies and leadership potential. Mentors also share their knowledge and experiences with mentees to help aid in the mentee's ability to identify strategies for personal and professional development.
Business Resource Groups (BRGs)
Members from various affinity groups voluntarily serve as a resource to facilitate inclusive and diverse perspectives.
Members of Business Resource Groups (BRGs) provide opportunities for professional development, networking and participate in local community activities that promote cultural awareness.
Partial list of affinity groups at Edward Jones:
- Asian American
- African American
- Young Professionals
- LGBT and Allies
