Black Enterprise Features TIAA in “Best Companies for Diversity”

For the ninth year, TIAA is featured as one of the “Best Companies for Diversity” by Black Enterprise magazine.
Each year Black Enterprise reviews the practices of more than 1,000 of the nation's leading companies with a focus on how they embrace and demonstrate the inclusion and participation of African Americans (and other ethnic minority groups) across a wide spectrum of corporate activities.  In evaluating which companies to honor, the organization looks at best-practices and diverse representation within the employee base, senior management tracks, corporate boards and supplier pools. They also examine diversity efforts on behalf of other groups, such as women, LGBT, the disabled, and veterans, and award points to companies who do well in these areas, as is the case at TIAA.

“Diversity is a vital part of our company’s culture and business strategy,” says Jana Brown, VP, Human Resources Chief of Staff and National Chair of the Empowered ERG. “We are continuously looking for ways to foster a diverse environment while meeting a broad range of client expectations and needs. Our commitment to diversity is part of who we are, and being recognized for the ninth consecutive year reinforces that we are on the right track.”

At TIAA, we believe diversity is broader than just race, ethnicity and gender; it’s about providing an inclusive workplace and culture where employees of all backgrounds and perspectives can grow and contribute their best. To help our clients and customers achieve financial well-being, we need a diverse workforce and an inclusive environment where everyone can helps drive success.  Diverse teams outperform non-diverse teams in terms of quantity, creativity, and quality.
