Deutsche Bank fosters an inclusive culture that values the diverse mix of our people, utilizes their talent and helps them reach their full potential. We made further progress in achieving this goal in 2011. Each region and most business areas now have their own active diversity councils to ensure that the culture of diversity can be experienced in their respective areas. The first Global Diversity Week took place from October 3 to 7, 2011. The objective was to increase awareness of all aspects of diversity and to inform employees about diversity issues and initiatives. Deutsche Bank was also a co-sponsor of the highly-regarded “Veterans on Wall Street” conference in New York. This initiative aims to enable former military personnel to pursue a career in the financial industry.
