From The Company
Building a Culture of Diversity & Inclusion
We believe that diversity and inclusion are critical to our success – promoting a creative workplace that leads to innovation, growth and profitability.
We invest in each employee through a wide variety of programs and initiatives — seeking to ensure that our people are not only respected as individuals, but also truly valued for their unique perspectives.
- To enhance the diversity of our workforce, especially at senior levels, we offer three career-development programs focused on women and people of color. They provide support such as mentor matching and coaching.
- Our 138 Employee Resource Groups (ERGs) reflect 13 dimensions of diversity and provide a forum for employees to advocate for one another and advance diversity and inclusion within our communities.
- Membership continues to increase, rising by 16% in 2019, representing 24% of all employees.
- Our employees are multifaceted and allies for others: approximately 62% of ERG participants are members of more than one group.
- AIG offers unconscious bias training to all employees to help them recognize and manage assumption “blind spots” in their interactions.
- AIG introduces new, entry-level analysts to our two-year development program through the AIG Insurance Academy, which takes place four times each year. This is one example of how we are preparing for the insurance industry’s generational shift.
