Our support for Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) goes beyond the business case. At RGA, DEI is a human imperative. We find deep meaning in what we do to help protect lives and livelihoods, and we draw on diverse perspectives to help us achieve our purpose. DEI empowers us to better listen to our clients, touch hearts, open minds, and break down barriers to reach the people who most need the security insurance provides.

What Does Diversity Mean at RGA?

It's about you and us. It's about our differing backgrounds and cultures, our personal identities, our life experiences, and our perspectives. And it's about eliminating the destructive “isms” and “phobias” that prevent the best thinking and strongest solutions. 

Diversity, equity, and inclusion may feel like abstract concepts. DEI means we listen to ensure all voices are heard. We learn to draw strength from our differences. And we act with heart, searching, always, to build an environment of open dialogue and feedback at every level of our organization.

RGA is a great place to work. It's in RGA's basic DNA to care, nurture, and provide the right environment for learning, development, and growth. The most unique aspect of RGA is that the organization embraces diversity and promotes a culture of respect. Here, colleagues inspire each other. The organization fosters an environment of trust, promotes collaboration, and encourages people to do extraordinary things."

We Listen

Inclusion starts with listening to every voice. We are passionate about building an environment of open dialogue and respect, and we have formed multiple Employee Resource Groups (ERGs) to ensure all employees are heard. Everyone is welcome to join an ERG. These organizations encourage allyship, build networks, and promote positive change and understanding of the communities and markets where we operate. 

Through a partnership with international consultancy Mercer | Sirota, RGA also conducts bi-annual employee satisfaction surveys to capture honest perspectives on ways to improve organizational wellbeing and create an environment where our employees and all people feel safe, valued, and respected.  We stand in solidarity with marginalized groups, and we encourage RGA employees to bring any concerns into the open. Only by listening with heart can we ignite the full creativity and potential of our diverse workforce.

To keep this workforce engaged and motivated, we not only seek to our offer an inclusive and satisfying work environment, we also emphasize equity in career advancement and educational opportunities.

We Take Responsibility

Diversity is about more than what is visible from the outside; it must translate into measurable performance. RGA has made progress in embedding diversity into our strategy and our employee Code of Conduct.  A Global Diversity and Inclusion Council of executive leaders oversee the implementation of this strategy. Employees also have formed regional diversity and inclusion councils, and employee resource groups provide forums to share insight and guide the organization. Through speaker series and community outreach, our local offices also promote employee wellbeing and provide community support. 

We Act.

As a culture beating to an analytical heart, RGA takes pride in measurable progress toward a more inclusive work environment.

RGA continues to review our policies and practices to ensure barriers do not persist in our recruitment and promotion processes. This includes ensuring diverse candidate slates and selection panels, close performance monitoring and goal setting, and partnerships with organizations that help promote diversity within our company and industry. We are committed to removing barriers that inhibit full participation and equal access to information, pay, and opportunity throughout our operations.

Bloomberg Gender Equality Index

Our commitment to diversity and inclusion starts at the leadership level. The Women’s Forum of New York has repeatedly recognized RGA for the company’s role in advancing gender parity in the boardroom. Our leadership has become more representative of the markets we serve around the world. 

We are also proud to be recognized on the Bloomberg Gender Equality Index for our commitment to diversity and inclusion. We believe that a more equal world is a better world for everyone.

 

 

Pay equity is a powerful measure of workplace equity. RGA conducts an annual study of compensation practices using an external consulting firm, and the results reveal marked progress.
