  10. Edward Jones

    We believe in order for us to effectively serve the diverse communities that represent the entire fabric of our country, we must become more diverse and inclusive. Diversity enables us to learn about and understand the unique needs and nuances of different ethnicities, cultures and backgrounds. Without understanding and embracing different perspectives we lack the knowledge to deliver outstanding service and values to every client. Inclusion enables us to benefit from different ideas and perspectives that permeate from different educational and life experiences. Our strategy is to create a more inclusive work environment that welcomes different perspectives and gives every associate an opportunity to maximize his or her potential.
