Company Recognized for Having Top Employee Resource Groups

NEW YORK, May 8, 2018 – New York Life was once again named one of the Top 50 Companies for Diversity and included among the companies with the Top Employee Resource Groups by DiversityInc. The Top 50 list, issued yearly since 2001, recognizes the nation’s top companies for diversity and inclusion management. These companies excel in such areas as hiring, retaining and promoting women, minorities, people with disabilities, LGBT and veterans.

 “Our diverse and inclusive culture helps us to be more agile, broaden our reach and better serve the community,” said Kathleen Navarro, vice president and chief diversity officer, New York Life. “We actively cultivate an environment that encourages employees to challenge conventional thinking, develop new ideas and embrace differences across the company.”

“Events of the past year have demonstrated that decisive ethical leadership is necessary to guide any organization to success," notes Luke Visconti, founder and CEO of DiversityInc. "Successful leaders hold themselves accountable to be culturally competent, a skill that requires constant learning.”

DiversityInc’s extensive annual survey yields an empirically driven ranking based on recruitment, talent development, senior leadership commitment and supplier diversity. This year’s competition was improved with new survey questions, increased emphasis on fairness over chasing numbers and more sophisticated analysis from DiversityInc’s data scientists.
