I have seen 99% SVPs are males mostly whites and mostly aggressive Indian males in IT. They have very few SVP females they use their pictures to show fake gender diversity. Females stay away if you want to grow to S and C level.

If you're a white male at Fido, you're f'd and not getting promoted, so they can make way for D&I. It's a sh@t show with associate promotions based on race and gender. Should be great for business.

Think they actually gave you about 8 examples of women in charge. If you are blaming a glass ceiling on your lack of promotion at Fidelity you need to look inward. There is no better company In finance for women.

@6ada+1g9dSdya did you seriously just say because the company is headed by the biological granddaughter of the CEO there are no diversity issues at Fidelity? By your logic, Spain had no issues with sexism in the 15h century because Isabella I of Castile was Queen.

Seriously? Company headed by a woman. CFO is a woman. How about Margaret McKenna, Kathleen Murphy, Wendy John, Sharon Brovelli, plus the heads of WI Relationship Mgmt, Head of Workplace Inclusion, Head of PI and Head of WI HR.

There is no diversity at this company and certainly not at that level. Glass ceilings are real here. I've seen it happen first hand to more than qualified individuals that aren't white and aren't male. It's very sad, and even more sad the nepotism will keep it homogenous for years to come.

Senior levels are white new England and a few Indian people.

I've seen only a single SVP who was black.

That will change in the coming years as America's changing demography - and the strong political/social support for diversity - influence Fidelity toward stronger diversity.

I've seen a lot more diversity and the director and VP level.
