What’s Your Why?

Life@BlackRock

 

When I was young I wasn’t sure at first what might I do in this big world.

I grew up with the goal of pursuing a career in business but also giving back to the community.

I wanted to enter a company that actually cares about what’s going on.

BlackRock’s given me the opportunity to combine my personal and professional passions.

What we are doing that is something impacting our society.

Our aim is to help empower people with our savings.

We are offering hiring people that have had a diverse backgrounds.

As a minority get crucial to have a firm that is diverse.

Black Rock has given me opportunity, I feel like I can belong in finance.

I feel that I’m doing something special.

I feel I have the power to bring in the change that I want.

At BlackRock, we work with our own values in everything that we do today.

At BlackRock, we believe we’re at our best when our employees connect their personal purpose to their work and our firm’s purpose. In our “What’s Your Why” series, employees share how they bring their passions to what they do.
