Diversity of thought leads to increased creativity, better decision-making, and breakthrough innovations. We’ve known this since the start, which is why IMC has built a company culture that feels like home to over 70 nationalities across our global offices.
IMC recognizes that our people, with all their diverse skills and perspectives, will always be our greatest asset. Our success is driven by the collective sum of individual life experiences, knowledge, inventiveness, self-expression, unique capabilities and talent. This is why Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion has always been our priority.
Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion is important to all of us at IMC. That’s why we’ve already committed to the following:
We proudly endorse the Sustainable Development Goals of the United Nations, in which Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion are fundamental to its success. IMC is committed to leading our workforce by not only encouraging, but embracing the differences in age, color, disability, ethnicity, geographical provenance, family or marital status, gender identity or expression, language, national origin, political affiliation, race, religion, sexual orientation, socio-economic status, educational and professional background, and other characteristics that make us all unique.
Making things happen today and making them better tomorrow is quintessential to how we do things at IMC. When it comes to Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion, that means our policies and commitments are ever-evolving to help shape a fairer, and more equal world.
Inclusive culture training
At our offices around the globe all our employees are trained on how to create and maintain an inclusive workplace where everybody is welcome, no matter who you are or where you are from. In this full day onboarding training all new employees learn about the key DE&I values of IMC.
Safe workplace and whistleblower policies
Taking responsibility for yourself as well as others is a core value of IMC. All offices have in place policies to create a safe work environment for everyone, regardless of background. We also encourage employees to call out the wrong behavior when they see it, and provide channels available for them to do so anonymously.
Reaching out to underrepresented groups
We actively collaborate with various organizations focused on supporting under-represented groups to enter and succeed in STEM careers. Our contributions include sponsorships, event participation, and hosting open information sessions, providing an insight into our industry.
IMC is proud to host several women focused programs around the world each year. Our fun, in-house developed programs are designed to discover more about our industry and IMC. Participants are assigned a mentor, attend workshops and personal development sessions, and gain a thorough understanding of what a career in tech and trading is like.
