“At Edward Jones, we know progress depends on our collective hard work and everyday actions to work together toward true equity,” said Jennifer Kingston, Head of Enterprise Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI).

The survey measures the differences in women’s survey responses with those of their peers and assesses the impact of demographics and roles on the quality and consistency of women’s experiences.
“This year, we renewed our five-point commitment to positively impact opportunities for women and people of color,” said Kingston. “We are focused on advancing equitable hiring, training, promotional practices and policies to progress toward greater diverse representation.”
