We stand for diversity, equity and inclusion

Manulife and John Hancock are investing more than $3.5 million over the next two years to promote diversity, equity and inclusion in the workplace and the communities we serve. The goals of these focused investments are three-fold: to increase the representation of diverse talent at all levels in the organization; create greater inclusion across the company through enhanced training; and to support organizations helping racially and ethnically diverse communities/individuals.

This comprehensive program covers three pillars of initiatives:

Building representation of racially and ethnically diverse professionals through graduate programs, focused leadership recruitment efforts and accelerated mid-career development.

Programs designed to educate and train all employees that go beyond our mandatory unconscious bias training. This will encompass regular listening forums to foster conversations that will enable building a greater understanding of inclusion and connection across our global team, allyship training and targeted training for all managers on leading inclusively.

Supporting communities through donations and volunteerism focused on financial education and career mentorship.
