"Diverse viewpoints lead to informed decisions and creativity, which are instrumental for NFA to achieve its mission of safeguarding the derivatives markets and protecting customer funds. Different perspectives from individuals of varying backgrounds, ethnicity, and gender, collaborating across our organization, are the foundation for NFA to evolve, and by doing so, to redefine regulation and enhance our mission. Our inclusive workforce and culture, respectful of each employee's diversity, unique values and abilities, allows NFA to flourish and succeed."

President and CEO

"Diversity and inclusion have been NFA values for over 30 years. There is nothing more important than cultivating a workplace culture where everyone feels a strong sense of belonging, regardless of their background. When we foster the collective strength of our many differences, we unlock our full potential."

Vice President, Human Resources
