Inclusion and Diversity at American Express: Our commitment

Our differences are what shape the world, and we’re committed to ensuring everyone is seen, heard, and feels like they truly belong. That’s why we’re actively cultivating an inclusive and diverse workplace where every voice is valued, teamwork is rewarded, and different points of view are celebrated.

We see diversity of people and experiences as fuel for the creativity and innovation we need to be and deliver our best, for our colleagues, customers and the communities we serve.

Empowered Voices: Hear from #TeamAmex colleagues

Our colleagues’ stories—their backgrounds, their beliefs, their experiences—are just as important as the skills they bring to the table. Their voices inform how we approach our business now and in the future and let us know what we’re doing right, where we can improve, and how we can get it done. Hear firsthand from colleagues from all around the world as they define what diversity means to them and how they found their place at American Express.
