Diversity, equity & inclusion
Through diversity, we all make a difference. At RiverSource, we believe that diverse perspectives, talent, and ideas are critical to delivering financial solutions that meet clients’ needs and make a difference in their financial lives.
Belong, grow and contribute in a culture that unleashes potential.
We foster an inclusive culture where we embrace the unique contributions of everyone at RiverSource and empower them to deliver value for our diverse clients, community and shareholders.
- To be a workforce that reflects the diverse clients and markets we aspire to serve around the world
- To deliver shareholder value through industry-leading business initiatives by a diverse and engaged ecosystem of employees, advisors and suppliers
- To be a leading firm in the financial services industry as measured by external recognition, engagement and external representation benchmarks
Diversity is supported through RiverSource business resource networks that reflect the breadth and depth of communities across the firm.
These networks provide additional resources to support professional development and a healthy work/life balance. Members focus their actions around four core areas:
- Leadership engagement and development
- Business growth and support
- Community involvement
- Cultural awareness
Every support channel is critical to building a diverse and inclusive culture. That’s why we make sure our employees have access to a range of programs that provide the resources they need to feel supported and empowered to pursue successful careers. Key programs include:
