Forbes has recognized TIAA as one of the 2022 Best Employers for Diversity. This achievement emphasizes TIAA's ongoing dedication to inclusivity and welcome for all.
"We are proud of our commitment to diversity, equity and inclusion," said Sean Woodroffe, Chief People Officer of TIAA. "These are values at the heart of TIAA's mission. We believe it is our duty to lead the way and Be the Change. We are honored to be recognized by Forbes. Most importantly, we know there is more to be done."
In 2020, TIAA launched its Be the Change platform to address injustice and inequities. Since then, the platform has expanded to make real change in local communities through dialogue, education, and engagement. TIAA has also launched a leadership coaching tool and a program to target career development of underrepresented groups.
Forbes collaborated with the market research company Statista to survey 60,000 working Americans in order to determine the companies and their rank for the Best Employers for Diversity list. Survey participants had to rank their companies based on factors such as equality within age, gender, disability, ethnicity and sexual orientation.
