Diversity & inclusion

Powered by many voices, driven by many ideas.

“At WEX, we strive to achieve a fully inclusive workplace that unifies and celebrates the diversity of our people. To fully realize our potential as a company, we must embrace our differences in culture, identity and background.”

Melissa Smith, Chair and CEO

“Focusing on diversity also means focusing on inclusion. Employee Resource Groups are great because it gives everyone a voice regardless of origin and background. This allows us to see the company through a different lens or perspective than we normally would.”

Lance, NexGen

“Military veterans possess invaluable leadership skills and business acumen. WEXVets provides mentorship, development, and camaraderie for veteran employees, empowering them to capitalize on their unique experiences.”

Sophia, WEXVets

“Women play an important role at WEX. With a female CEO, an executive team with 30% female leadership, and global workforce that is nearly half female, women are a key part of WEX’s business at all levels. We are positioned to create a community that sustains and supports us as individuals and leaders, while also helping us to drive positive impact to our business.”

Hilary, Women of WEX

“I want to make a difference and make people feel like they belong here and WEXPats empowers me to do that by giving me a community of people who have the shared experience of immigrating to a new country for work and the passion to make the transition easier for others.”

Elena, WEXPats

“ERGs drive diversity by fostering new bonds and communities across the company. It can be easy to get caught up in a routine or a silo at WEX, but NexGen has given me the opportunity to connect with people in other functional areas that I otherwise would have never met.”

Vincent, NexGen

Employee resource groups

As we seek to provide an engaging and inclusive culture at WEX, employee resource groups (ERGs) are a key part of our strategy for creating opportunities and support systems for growth.

More than just providing engaging programming and places for meaningful dialogue, our ERGs play a vital role in influencing the direction of the company.
