Diversity & Inclusion

Western Union envisions a culture of global unity and boundless connection, contributing to a world where our diversity is celebrated in all its forms.

  • We want every employee to feel that they belong, are treated equitably, and have the same growth opportunities.
  • Our commitment is to provide an inclusive work culture that champions our teams’ unique backgrounds and perspectives while reflecting the global communities we serve.

As a global company operating in more than 200 countries and territories, diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) are central to who we are and an important factor in driving innovation and performance. We work to build and support a workforce that reflects the diversity of our customers and communities across the globe. We focus on bringing more diverse candidates into our organization while creating a culture of inclusion and belonging to ensure they stay, grow, and thrive.

2025 Goals

  • Reach 40% women in senior management and above roles by 2025.
  • Reach 25% Hispanic/Latinx and Black/ African American employees in the U.S. by 2025.

Our ERGs are executive-sponsored and employee-driven networks that connect locally and globally to foster a diverse and inclusive workplace. ERGs are critical to our DEI strategy and are essential in attracting diverse talent, developing and retaining existing talent, and supporting an inclusive culture where employees can thrive. Many ERGs lead and support various programs and events to build an inclusive workplace.

  • Asian Pacific Islander Advisory Council (AAPI@WesternUnion): raising awareness of the cultural, social, and economic value the Asian Pacific Islander community brings to Western Union and providing professional and leadership development opportunities
  • Black Employee Network: driving access, progress, and opportunity within the Black community inside and outside of Western Union, with a focus on education and engagement
  • LGBTQ@WesternUnion: a space for LGBTQ+ employees and their allies to reach their full potential, develop leadership abilities, and contribute to business success
  • Parents and Caregivers ERG: creating a culture where parents and caregivers can easily care for their families and grow in their professional careers
  • Somos Unidos: connecting Latinx and Hispanic employees with career opportunities and development as well as fostering a culture of unity and belonging
  • Women@WesternUnion: creating a culture where leadership at Western Union is gender inclusive and women at all levels of the company feel empowered
  • In addition to these global ERGs, we have regional ERGs that strive to foster a sense of belonging and provide employees with a safe space to express their authentic selves.

We Believe in a Brighter Future

The Western Union Foundation believes education is the surest pathway to economic opportunity. We seek to empower disadvantaged youth and migrants to succeed in today’s global economy. In 2021, the Foundation celebrated 20 years of providing opportunities for economic prosperity by investing in skill building— including scholarships— and migrant inclusion, responding in times of crisis, and enabling Western Union employees to give back to our communities. To date, more than $137 million has been given to fund projects and scholarships in 175 countries across the globe, and $20 million has been dedicated to crisis response.
