Diversity at Two Sigma

A diverse employee base fosters our culture of learning and innovation, and encourages comprehensive decision making.

With this as a core principle, we are committed to building a workplace where all feel safe, welcome, and able to do their best work.

Learning never stops at Two Sigma.

We have developed a foundational DEI curriculum to promote continued development for our employees.

In partnership with the NeuroLeadership Institute, we developed an interactive and research-based workshop.

The Inclusive Actions Workshop focuses on unconscious bias and microaggression, and leaves employees with concrete actions they can take toward building a more inclusive workplace.
