Inclusion and Diversity
Explore Aon's approach and commitments to inclusion and diversity.
Delivering better decisions through inclusion and diversity.
We believe diverse and inclusive teams create better insights and solutions, deliver the best outcomes for clients and are vital to ensuring our long-term success.
Colleagues can achieve their professional potential when they feel a sense of belonging and are free to bring their authentic selves to work.
We celebrate the strides we are making toward becoming a more diverse and inclusive team, and are committed to continuous growth and evolution toward greater diverse representation. We are dedicated to ensuring our workforce is representative of the communities in which we operate.
Our Commitment to Advancing Inclusion and Diversity
We’ve embedded a commitment to I&D throughout our organization, starting at the top with our Board of Directors’ Inclusion and Diversity Sub-Committee. Within the firm, our Global Inclusive Leadership Council (GILC) leads our strategy and aligns leaders across our firm to work on our four I&D pillars: education, promotion, recruitment and representation. From the GILC, responsibility cascades to regional and local councils and the business resource groups. Every Aon colleague is encouraged and empowered to practice inclusion and diversity on an individual level.
Inclusion and Diversity Focus Areas
Our Global Inclusive Leadership Council (GILC) has identified the focus areas below to ensure we are building a diverse workforce with a breadth of perspective. At the same time, we continuously enhance our inclusive culture, creating an environment where colleagues feel a sense of belonging and are able to bring their authentic selves to work.
Educate, Train and Model Inclusion and Diversity
We make inclusion training available for colleagues across the firm. Unconscious bias training and our Activating Your Allyship course lay the foundation for all to engage in and continue their inclusion learning journey. People leaders participate in inclusive leadership programs to help them develop their inclusive leadership, hiring and recruiting skills. We also encourage our business resource groups to host education sessions, enabling colleagues to build their cultural competence and become better allies.
Enable All Colleagues to Have Equal Access to Roles and Opportunities
Through a focus on our career development and promotion programs, we’re committed to ensuring that all colleagues have equal access to roles, opportunities and sponsorship.
Attract and Hire Diverse Candidates
We strives to create a more equitable future through diverse hiring, talent development and other initiatives. We’re committed to enhancing our inclusive hiring practices to attract and recruit talented individuals from more diverse backgrounds, bringing more varied experiences and mindsets to our business.
Ensure Aon Colleagues Reflect the Community at All Levels Within the Organization
We are focused on being a firm that is representative of the communities in which we operate. We hold our global, regional and local teams accountable to helping us drive towards this aim.
Economic inclusion is an important element of Aon’s overall commitment to building a more equitable, sustainable and resilient firm.
