BOSTON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--State Street Corporation (NYSE: STT) today announced its commitment as an inaugural employer pursuing the Management Leadership for Tomorrow (MLT) Hispanic Equity at Work Certification. This first-of-its kind certification sets clear, measurable standards for achieving Hispanic equity internally and for contributing to Hispanic equity in society. This commitment further builds on State Street’s launch partnership and participation in the Management Leadership for Tomorrow's Black Equity at Work Certification.
Through the MLT Hispanic Equity at Work Certification, employers develop a rigorous plan and measurably promote five core areas including: Hispanic representation at every level; an inclusive, anti-racist work environment; compensation equity; racially-just business practices; and racial justice contributions and investments. This Certification will provide State Street with a guide to evaluate equity in the workplace with the same rigor as financial reporting or other core business initiatives.
In July 2020, State Street announced 10 Actions to combat racism and inequality through measurable tenets that are part of the company’s global plan to become a leader in promoting greater equity in the industry and local communities. The 10 Actions aim to triple Black and Latinx senior leadership and double the percentage of those populations at all levels of the organization by addressing development and advancement programs, governance models, community outreach and philanthropy. In addition, the 10 Actions look to strengthen supplier diversity programs and seek to improve diversity in the company’s board of directors.
“Although we are seeing progress made in addressing racial inequities across financial services, there is still much more work ahead. We continue to make meaningful progress through State Street’s 10 Actions to Address Racism and Inequality with the goal of promoting racial equity in our company, our industry, and our society,” said Eric Aboaf, vice chairman and chief financial officer of State Street. “Our partnership with MLT on the Hispanic Equity at Work Certification will further our commitment to transparency, accountability, and action as we continue our journey to advance inclusion and diversity.”
“We are proud to be an inaugural participant in MLT’s Hispanic Equity at Work Certification, which is the perfect complement to our work to be an industry leader in addressing racism and inequality. MLT is once again providing State Street, and other leading organizations, an important roadmap to help build a more resilient and equitable future,” said Paul Francisco, chief diversity officer for State Street.
