    "Great People" is one of Morningstar's core values, and when it comes to our people, our differences are our strength. We cultivate a diverse and inclusive environment, and value new ideas and alternative perspectives. We respect the thinking that comes from our employees' unique backgrounds, skills, perspectives, and experiences. We're a global company with employees who reflect the diversity of the clients and markets we serve. As investors benefit from maintaining diverse portfolios, Morningstar is strengthened by the contributions of our diverse workforce.

  • Diverse Perspectives
    People who are smart, hard-working, curious, and creative excel at Morningstar. Our people are passionate about our mission to create great products that help investors reach their financial goals. Because we value new ideas, we hire a diverse range of individuals with unique backgrounds, skills, and experiences. The fact that we don't all think the same way encourages lively debate, inspires thought leadership, and helps us create better solutions for our clients. Our people are the foundation of Morningstar's culture and make this a great place to build a career. Every person here matters and contributes to our success, so we welcome their unique perspectives.

    Welcoming Differences
    We celebrate both our individual differences and our unity as One Morningstar. It happens all over the world: Chicago adventurers sharing their stories in an employee travel group; the Mumbai office honoring India's Independence Day; a Mid-Autumn Festival gathering in Shenzhen; our Toronto office holding a forum and celebration supporting LGBTQ Pride; and hundreds of employees worldwide participating in the Morningstar Olympics.

    Global Culture 
    Morningstar is global. What started as a one-man operation out of founder and executive chairman, Joe Mansueto's apartment in 1984 is now a leading provider of independent investment research with thousands of employees in countries on six continents. Our clients around the world include individual investors, financial advisors, and institutions. Because of the varied insights and abilities of our global workforce, we're better positioned to understand our clients' needs and exceed their expectations.

    Diversity is a Journey
    We’ve made great strides toward achieving our diversity and inclusion goals, but we understand that diversity is a journey. We constantly challenge ourselves to find new ways to create a more inclusive work environment and leverage the unique contributions and ideas offered by diverse employees. We’re proud of our diverse and inclusive environment, but we also know there’s always room for improvement and continually strive to be better. Gender identity, ethnicity, age, and sexual orientation metrics help us gain insight, set goals, and evaluate our progress. By proactively recruiting, hiring, engaging and nurturing employees, we continue to cultivate an environment rich in diverse thoughts and perspectives.

    Transparency is deeply rooted in Morningstar’s culture. As such, we feel it’s important to share statistics from our most recent filing with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) as they relate to the diversity of our U.S. workforce. In the future, we expect to provide more comprehensive, global data to better help our customers, shareholders, and other stakeholders understand and monitor the progress we’re making.
