At the Hartford, on a daily basis, diversity and inclusion are evident at all levels of our company in the way we listen and respond to our customers, our community and each other. We value and respect the unique characteristics, skills and experiences our employees bring to the workplace. The pursuit of diversity and inclusion is a business imperative for us. We need our workforce to mirror our marketplace and communities so we can better meet the evolving needs of customers and partners and become a magnet for diverse talent. Building a culture that engages the knowledge, skills, and perspectives of all teammates is essential. Doing so encourages broader collaboration and more effective decision making, while strengthening The Hartford’s ability to innovate and adapt.
We want The Hartford to be an organization where people can succeed because of their differences, not in spite of them. In 2012, we launched an initiative to hold leaders accountable for aligning The Hartford’s diversity and inclusion strategy with business objectives. As part of our commitment, The Hartford supports these organizations:
- APPN: Asian Pacific Professional Network
- BIPN: Black Insurance Professional Network
- GLOBE: Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual and Transgendered Organization Benefiting Everyone
- HLN: Hispanic Latino Network
- PWN: Professional Women's Network
The Hartford is also committed to maintaining a robust process that ensures diverse business participation in an open, fair and inclusive sourcing environment. Our Supplier Diversity Program promotes collaboration, fosters strategic partnerships and introduces competitive sourcing opportunities that will enhance our mutual growth.
