SEC Values: TeamworkOn October 10, 2019 by Raul Dinwiddie
Teamwork is all about working together; it’s
about bringing diversity of thought, experience, perspectives together. It’s about taking the best that the individuals
can have and making them even more effective as a group. It really came to light during the financial
crisis. The people that I saw here at the SEC just kind of rolled up their sleeves and
said, “What do I need to do?” “Let’s get to work,” “Let’s try to resolve
this.” People want to get the job done. People want
to make sure that whatever mission they’re working on, whether it’s a small task or
a larger project, that it’s met. Are we maintaining fair, orderly and efficient markets? Are we facilitating capital formation?
If each one of us in our various roles can answer those questions as a “yes” with
everything that we do, that in itself is what builds the team. That’s our common goal
as a team and each one of us has a part to play.
