At DTCC, we recognize the importance of community involvement, the need to build sustainable partnerships with local organizations, and our responsibility to respect the environment through responsible building practices and energy conservation. We also understand that creating a workplace that celebrates diversity and encourages open dialogue through our [email protected] initiative is essential to achieving our core business goals and objectives.

Here are examples of our 2013 diversity and inclusion and corporate social responsibility efforts:

  • Employee survey results reached world-class levels in key categories and were among the best in DTCC's history. When compared to 2012 results, individual survey items increased on 18 attributes, were unchanged on eight and did not decline in a single category.
  • DTCC demonstrated its commitment to treating all employees with fairness and equality by joining with 13 other leading financial services firms in signing the Bingham amicus brief in the United States v. Windsor lawsuit. In that landmark case, the U.S. Supreme Court found sections of The Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) unconstitutional. In recognition of DTCC's work in this area, the company was honored with a Corporate Leadership Award from OPEN Finance – a network of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) leaders representing 34 Wall Street firms.
  • The Human Rights Campaign (HRC) named DTCC one of the "Best Places to Work for LGBT Equality" for the second year in a row. The HRC is the leading LGBT civil rights organization in the United States, and the "Best Place" designation is based on a 100% rating on 40 specific items relating to LGBT employees.
  • DTCC continued its commitment to the 100,000 Jobs Mission – a coalition comprising major corporations that has recently doubled its commitment and has pledged to hire 200,000 transitioning service members and military veterans by 2020. By proactively recruiting veterans via job fairs, military bases, recruitment agencies and online initiatives, and by leveraging its newly formed veterans employee network, DTCC Tampa successfully tapped the veteran talent pool for the majority of its recent new hires in the area of information technology.
  • DTCC and its employees continued to give back to the communities where they live and work by contributing significant time and financial resources to multiple organizations to support local blood drives, holiday food and gift drives, and community fundraisers. DTCC remained a corporate supporter of the United Way, raising more than $760,000 in 2013 to help individuals and their families achieve their full potential through education, income stability and improved health.
  • Employees in Dallas, Jersey City and Tampa took part in the 2013 Making Strides Against Breast Cancer Walk and the Susan G. Komen Walk for the Cure. Team Tampa manned and operated a DTCC tent for a balloon release ceremony to honor survivors.
  • DTCC was recognized with a Gold-level Leadership designation in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) from the U.S. Green Building Council for sustainable building practices in recognition of the renovation and redesign of its new offices in Jersey City.
