At Manulife, we live by our mission to make decisions easier and lives better. Foundational to our success is ensuring that all of our colleagues, customers, and stakeholders are respected, feel connected to each other and to our mission, and are treated with equity and dignity.
Manulife and John Hancock are investing more than over the next two years to promote diversity, equity and inclusion in the workplace and the communities we serve. The goals of these focused investments are three-fold: ; create greater inclusion across the company through enhanced training; and to support organizations helping Black, Indigenous and People of Colour (BIPOC) communities.
We support businesses owned by women, members of minorities, and persons who identify as LGBTQ, veterans, persons with disabilities, and Indigenous Peoples who are part of our efforts to reflect the diversity of the communities in which we operate.
Our global DEI strategy is spearheaded by our Chief Diversity Officer, and our Global Executive DEI Council guides, supports, and facilitates its implementation. Chaired by our CEO, the Council is made up of executives, with global representation, who are passionate about moving our DEI agenda forward. They work closely with their executive leader to develop and implement annual DEI plans with specific targets set for their function.
