Moody's Collaboration and Collegiality in Diversity


Moody's, one of the leading providers of credit and risk opinions in the market, was founded more than 100 years ago through the publishing of Moody’s Manual of Industrial and Miscellaneous Securities, by John Moody & Company during its founding year of 1900. That manual was created by Moody based on his assessment of the market’s needs at the time. It turned out well and the rest is history.

Today, Moody's is recognized for the important role it plays in shaping the thinking of participants in credit-risk sensitive markets.

Moody's reach is global thus helping make it an established name to reckon with in the credit and risk industry worldwide. Because of its global dimension, it is imperative that Moody's culture reflect the diversity of the communities they serve. Indeed, diversity and inclusion are much ingrained into their culture, for they believe that different perspectives, backgrounds and skills add value to our organization and enhance our ability to service our customers, making theirs a workplace of collaboration and collegiality.

As part of their commitment to diversity and inclusion, Moody's provide opportunities to network, learn and volunteer through our Employee Resource Groups (ERG) – the Women’s ERG, the Multicultural ERG, the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and Allies (LGBTA) ERG and the Veterans ERG. Each group has executive sponsors who are vocal and visible in their support and advocacy. 

A Global Diversity Council is in placed at Moody's, and this ensures that strategic diversity initiatives are followed through by committed senior leaders, making Moody's an employer of choice.
