Diversity & Inclusion Strategy
Aon plc is committed to creating a winning and inclusive culture with growth and development opportunities for everyone. Diversity is the foundation on which we have built our world-class organization, unparalleled in delivering distinctive value to clients in risk, retirement and health.
Inclusion at Aon can be defined as a sense of belonging, feeling respected, valued for who you are; the achievement of a work environment where all colleagues can do their best work, have fair and equal access to opportunities and resources, and can contribute fully to the organization’s success. It is the power to align and integrate Inclusion concepts and offerings into all areas of Aon that ultimately drive business, create opportunities, and serve our clients internally and externally.
Harnessing the multiplicity of cultures, backgrounds, and experiences of our talent will increase the quality of work yielding greater innovation and business results, ultimately shifting the organization from awareness to understanding.
