HARTFORD, Conn. -- May 06, 2013
DiversityInc magazine recently named Travelers one of 25 Noteworthy Companies
in recognition of its diversity and inclusion efforts. Travelers was chosen
from more than 893 participating companies based on an annual survey that
measures CEO Commitment, Human Capital, Corporate and Organizational
Communications, and Supplier Diversity.
“We are honored to be recognized by DiversityInc for our company-wide efforts
to create a work environment that supports and promotes diversity in
everything we do,” said Joelle Murchison Hayes, Vice President of Enterprise
Diversity & Inclusion at Travelers. “Our leadership and employees know that
this focus is essential to our organization being more reflective of our
customers, agents, communities and future opportunities.”
Highlights of Travelers’ Commitment to Diversity:
*Travelers partners with a number of diverse professional organizations
including INROADS, The Posse Foundation, the National Black MBA
Association and the Association of Latino Professionals in Finance and
Accounting. The company has also implemented various initiatives focused
on the development and progression of women and people of color.
*The company has launched seven employee-led diversity networks focused on
fostering the attraction, retention and development of all Travelers
employees, many of whom are engaged by the company’s leaders to influence
business strategy. More than 3,500 employees have joined at least one of
the diversity networks to date, a participation rate that is more than
double what most employers see in the first five years following the
implementation of similar groups.
*Each of Travelers’ more than 30,000 employees is required to attend a
live, half-day diversity education training program to examine their
personal biases and engage in learning strategies to become diversity
*Travelers launched its signature education program, Travelers EDGE:
Empowering Dreams for Graduation and Employment to increase the number of
underrepresented individuals who complete a bachelor's degree and are
prepared for a career at Travelers or within the Insurance and Financial
