GLOBE (Global Link of Black Employees)

GLOBE (Global Link of Black Employees) provides a platform for connection and collaboration for all employees that have an affinity or interest in Black, African, African-American and West Indian culture at Nasdaq. 

Making an Impact at Nasdaq

Nasdaq’s GLOBE employee network formed a Task Force to enable Nasdaq to better champion the growth and prosperity of our Black community. Through GLOBE’s Task Force, employee volunteers were empowered to contribute to 5 pillars of effort.

  • Professional Development: host frequent professional development programs and developmental opportunities that can support the advancement of Black talent at Nasdaq


  • Recruitment and Retention: formulate a strategy to help Nasdaq recruit high quality, diverse talent at all levels in the organization, including building up relationships with existing and new partners


  • Communications and Social Awareness: raise awareness and educate employees on the history of race relations in the U.S. through illuminating conversations with thought leaders, and discuss positive ways forward


  • Community Outreach and Giving: support non-profit organizations, including mentorship for under-served students and financial education for under-served communities


  • Supplier and Partnership Diversity: explore opportunities for Nasdaq to engage more with minority-owned businesses and premier minority-led institutions.
