DIVERSITY LEADERSHIP

Ted Mathas
Chairman, President and CEO

“Diversity is about growth for any business, but it’s also about growth for each of us personally and professionally. A company that embraces different backgrounds and different opinions — one that is open, flexible, and respectful — produces the best results for the increasingly diverse communities it serves. At the same time, no one ever grows through complacency. We grow when we are confronted by the unexpected, and challenged by new ideas and new perspectives. Diversity provides us with exciting opportunities to learn and to look at the world around us from a fresh point of view.”  
Kathleen Navarro
Vice President and Chief Diversity Officer

“I am proud to be a part of an organization that unleashes the full potential of all employees by creating an inclusive environment where differences are encouraged and leveraged. Our richly diverse culture makes us a more forward thinking and agile company, and one better aligned to the needs of our policyholders.”
