Diversity, Equity & Inclusion
We embrace diverse perspectives and foster a culture of belonging
SVB has an executive-led Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Steering Committee and an employee advocacy network focused on these objectives.
We encourage our employees to share their thoughts on diversity, equity and inclusion topics, and we support these efforts with a Code of Conduct based on respect. All of our DE&I related work is captured in the DE&I SVB report.

We are proud to be a member of the Bloomberg Gender Equality Index, recognizing our continued focus and progress towards gender diversity and equality. The reference index measures gender equality across five pillars: female leadership and talent pipeline, equal pay and gender pay parity, inclusive culture, sexual harassment policies and pro-women brand. We continue to evaluate our process to advance gender parity in SVB leadership roles and ensure fair pay. In 2021, we completed a Gender Pay Gap Report for our UK office.
