Global Diversity and Inclusion

At CME Group, our success depends on our talented team of employees and the contributions they make every day to move our business forward. We embrace our employees’ diverse experiences, cultures and skills, working to ensure that all perspectives are acknowledged and valued.

As we extend our global reach, our goal is to continue to make our individual differences work for the good of our company, employees, customers, shareholders and communities. Embracing our differences enables us to become more innovative, competitive and customer-focused across everything we do.

Our global diversity and inclusion initiatives include:

  • Offering a strong base of Employee Network Groups (ENGs) to promote shared professional and personal interests.  Learn more about our ENGs.
  • Offering flexible work/life balance and family-friendly programs to accommodate the diverse needs of our employees.
  • Participating in the Financial Services Pipeline, a collaborative effort between 19 financial organizations and the Chicago Community Trust, with the goal of increasing the representation of Latinos and African Americans and improving the cultural competency within the Chicago financial services industry.

We are also proud of our diverse workforce that spans the world.  We have more than 2,500 employees in global cities including Chicago, New York, London, Singapore, Belfast and Bangalore. Our employees speak more than 40 languages and serve our customers’ risk management needs across more than 150 countries.

We consider all potential employees without regard to race, color, religion, age, gender, sexual orientation, national origin, ancestry, disability, marital status, veteran status or any other protected characteristic. Persons with disabilities (as defined by the Americans with Disabilities Act) will be considered for any position where, with or without reasonable accommodation, they are able to perform the essential functions of the position, as long as such accommodation does not cause an undue hardship to CME Group.
