We Create a Culture of Diversity
SIX invests in bright minds who work together to shape the future of the financial markets. To do this, we need employees who look at ideas from different angles, bring in other perspectives and come up with new solutions. That’s why we are committed to diversity and inclusion and value the broad set of perspectives that team members with different backgrounds bring.
Diversity Activities at SIX
SIX benefits from the diverse know-how of its employees and wants to further promote diversity within the company. Discover more about the activities which help us create a more diverse workforce:
Membership at Advance
By becoming a member of Advance, we would like to promote our female employees even more specifically and support them in their career goals. Advance is an association that aims to promote women in leadership positions. The network offers events, workshops, mentorship and advice to women in management positions and equips ambitious women managers with skills and leadership qualities. SIX has set itself the goal of promoting talent and thereby increasing the proportion of women in management positions in particular.
Gender Diversity Network
The Gender Diversity Network is an internal platform on which women and men actively share their experiences with each other. Its objective is to generate ideas for fostering greater diversity at SIX and to put them into action. The network was founded in 2018 and is now operational at all SIX business sites.
Parents at Work
Finding the balance between work and family is an ongoing challenge. Especially for working parents who often feel that there are not enough hours in the day. SIX provides the peer coaching program parents@work for working parents.
Embracing Diversity: LGBT+ Network
At SIX, we take pride in our diverse and inclusive workplace, where everyone is valued, no matter their sexual orientation, gender expression, or identity. Our LGBT+ network is a space for all employees who want to foster a LGBT+ friendly environment. Participating in Pride events in Zurich, Warsaw, and Madrid showcases our strong commitment to this cause. We firmly believe that an environment built on acceptance and equality fosters innovation, teamwork, and personal growth.
Fair-On-Pay Certificate for SIX
SIX is proud to have received the Fair-On-Pay certificate for its equal pay policy. This certificate, awarded by Comp-On AG, is a reference in the Swiss market. It identifies us as an exemplary employer and increases our attractiveness.
Diversity, Equity and Inclusion is one of the priorities of SIX: a fair pay policy and the promotion of female colleagues to management positions are very strong indicators of our commitment.
