Diversity & inclusion
Our mission is to cultivate a sense of belonging at Jackson by actively appreciating and respecting each other for our unique backgrounds. This allows us to best serve our customers through inclusive and collaborative partnerships.
To support the realization of our vision and mission, we have established the following strategic pillars:
- Ensure an inclusive workplace: Foster a culture of belonging by creating clear pathways for associates to make meaningful connections with one another.
- Develop a diverse talent pool: Enhance diversity across the business by attracting a diverse pipeline of talent for development and succession planning.
- Leverage diversity and inclusion in the marketplace: Engage external organizations that support our mission and vision and add value and resources to the work we are doing internally.
- Report our progress: Execute on diversity and inclusion goals and objectives against which Jackson can be evaluated.
Diversity and Inclusion Advisory Council
Established in 2018, our Diversity and Inclusion Advisory Council identifies opportunities for advancing our inclusive and diverse work environment. The council has developed a strategy for long-term sustainability, such as awareness training and recruitment, and developed our structure and charter for establishing our Business Resource Associate Groups (BRAGs). The advisory council is committed to evaluating all aspects of the organization and suggesting strategies that will make us more diverse and inclusive.
