FROM THE COMPANY
AIG is strongly committed to fostering a diverse and inclusive workplace that reflects the individual voices, strengths, and backgrounds of our employees around the globe.
A culture that is welcoming and respectful to all of our employees sets a solid foundation for them to thrive and perform at their very best and contributes to AIG’s long-term success. AIG leaders recognize that promoting a diverse workforce is most effective when it starts at the top.
To that end, our President and Chief Executive Officer Brian Duperreault regularly emphasizes its importance at company events, including last year’s “Dive In Festival” and AIG’s first-ever Global Employee Resource Group (ERG) Summit.
Members of our Executive Leadership Team, which is nearly 40 percent diverse, are fully engaged in diversity efforts, including serving as executive sponsors of ERGs, leading diversity-focused events and ensuring that diversity is ingrained in our recruitment and hiring practices.
ERGsare a cornerstone of AIG’s diversity efforts and are a direct way for the company and its employees to have an impact. In 2018, AIG held its first-ever Global ERG Summit, a unique event bringing together more than 100 ERG leaders from around the world for a two-day meeting in Nashville, Tennessee, to brainstorm ideas for expanding diversity at the company.
AIG increased ERG membership by 22 percent in 34 countries and added 29 new ERGs, with a particular focus on disAbilities & Allies, Working Families, and LGBT & Allies. In 2018, AIG implemented diversity goals for the company’s senior executives in the U.S. and 34 geographies. The company is tracking progress on meeting the goals, which include increasing representation in gender, ethnicity, and ability, along with ERG membership and management engagement.
AIG plans to expand on these efforts in 2019 to ensure all of our employees feel included and represented by the company’s programs and career advancement opportunities.
