Diversity, equity and inclusion: our three-pillar approach




We aim to attract talented people and provide the resources and encouragement they need to grow.



We strive to make Raymond James a welcoming place where differences are celebrated, and everyone is able to bring their whole selves to work.



Our communities are an integral part of who we are, and we strive to be an integral part of them.

Fostering Inclusion

At Raymond James, we believe we are all responsible for creating the world we wish to see. It’s in that spirit we ensure our firmwide commitment to diversity and inclusion thrives and evolves, through firm-led initiatives, strategic partnerships, and maintaining an environment where all voices are valued, respected and heard.

  • The Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Advisory Council (DEIAC), comprised of senior leaders appointed by our CEO and Executive Committee, is the primary body responsible for championing the practice of inclusion throughout the firm by supporting the implementation of corporate initiatives and representing associate and leader perspectives.

  • Amid collective despair following the tragic killings of George Floyd, Ahmaud Arbery, Breonna Taylor and others, thousands of associates and more than 60 leaders across Raymond James pledged their commitment to the Black community. While we have always worked to ensure we have policies and programs in place that seek to address racial inequality, we recognize we can – we must – do more. The pledge included an initial $1.5 million contribution to support racial equality, financial literacy and empowerment, and volunteerism opportunities.
