AIG is committed to Diversity, Equity and Inclusion and embraces and supports our employees’ differences in gender, age, nationality, sexual orientation, family or marital status, mental and development abilities, and other characteristics that make our employees unique.
The diversity of our people is one of AIG’s greatest assets and brings us great pride. Our colleagues show us how to better understand our clients and each other while diverse thoughts and perspectives increase our ability to be innovative – a key part of our strategy.
This is why, as a part of our effort to build the AIG of the future, we continue to focus on fostering a culture of inclusion – where everyone feels they belong and can be their authentic self – which helps us attract, develop and retain diverse talent and meet our business goals.
Gender Balance Policy
AIG Japan’s Gender Balance Policy includes a number of best practices in order to help us to drive a better gender balance at all levels within AIG Japan, and to help ensure that AIG is using the breadth of talent most effectively and that we have visible role models.
Women at AIG Japan
AIG runs several programs to support the development and promotion of women. Through these programs, participants come together from different parts of the business to increase their skills in areas such as leadership, problem-solving, and presentation skills. Many participants then apply what they’ve learned to advance their careers. Initiatives like the Women in Leadership Learning (WiLL) program and in-house groups such as Women in Distribution (WinD) and Global Women in Technology (GWIT), which focuses on the engagement, education and empowerment of women in technology, are run by and for women.
Supporting working parents and those who are involved in nursing care
Dedicated information and benefits are available for employees who provide child and nursing care. Depending on their situation, employees can select policies and benefits that support them in managing their work and personal lives. To encourage active participation in childcare, working fathers are also eligible for parental time off (paid leave).
Young Professional Development
Young professionals who join AIG – from new graduates to early career professionals – have various opportunities to take part in training programs in different stages of their careers. The Early Career Engagement Program is one program that was created to support, connect, and provide learning opportunities for young professionals in the first 5 years of their career with AIG. The program is structured in a way that it is led by young people, for young people and it allows for young professionals to create connections and share information with colleagues across the organization.
AIG is dedicated to fostering an inclusive workplace for the LGBTQ+ community, including equal access to employee benefits such as congratulatory and condolence benefits for LGBTQ+ employees.
