Reflections on recent tragedies

A message from Roger W. Ferguson, Jr., president and CEO of TIAA

Personally, I am outraged by the recent incidents of racism, violence and police brutality against members of the African American community.  The haunting video of Mr. Floyd’s last breaths is a sobering reflection of this national crisis.  Particularly with the pandemic issues we are confronting in 2020, this is a time when we must embrace our differences and become more inclusive.  No group should ever be targeted for racism, harassment or other form of discrimination. At TIAA, we are committed to playing our part to constructively engage as difference makers, consistent with our guiding values and, indeed, our legacy of inclusive leadership.
