New York Life recently released the 2021 Diversity, Equity,and Inclusion (DE&I) Report which explores the company’s approach to DE&I and underscores New York Life’s commitment to employees, agents, policy owners, and communities. According to Kathleen Navarro, senior vice president and chief diversity officer, “DE&I at New York Life is not the work of one area, but a guiding principle that permeates what we do across the company.”

The report highlights the evolution of DE&I at New York Life and the company’s focus on target and cultural markets, impact investing, and community and foundation commitments.

“As we move forward in 2022 and beyond, we are committed to driving change and progress with intention so that our DE&I efforts continue to evolve and grow, firmly ingrained in how we run our business and serve our clients and communities.”—Craig DeSanto, president and CEO-elect.

“As an organization that thinks long-term and elects to prepare for whatever the future may hold rather than try to predict it – we rely on our collective learnings and efforts as a whole to enable us to continue to proactively tackle the challenges of inequity and social justice,” said Ted Mathas, chairman and chief executive officer. “This is why in 2020, when long-standing racial injustices rose to the surface across our nation and COVID-19 disproportionately affected multicultural communities, we took immediate action but also knew we had to go beyond the short term.”

Craig DeSanto, president and CEO-elect, explained, “As we move forward in 2022 and beyond, we are committed to driving change and progress with intention so that our DE&I efforts continue to evolve and grow, firmly ingrained in how we run our business and serve our clients and communities.”
