Diversity & Inclusion

Diversity & Inclusion

Our mission is to create a culture and environment where every customer, employee and stakeholder, no matter what race, age, ability, gender, or affiliation can benefit from our fair, equitable and inclusive practices.

"Genworth strives to enhance the culture of our company and general community. We seek to build a community that values the inclusion of diversity and be a company of choice and opportunity for all, a beacon of diversity locally and nationally."."

Tom Mclnerney, President & CEO, Genworth

Employee Resource Groups and Connection Points

We empower our employees to embrace their differences and find comradery in their commonalities. We offer all colleagues the opportunity to develop, network, learn, and celebrate each other’s backgrounds and interests by joining any of our 18 different Employee Resource Groups (ERGs) and Connection Points (CPs). Each group has their own mission that contributes to creating an inclusive work environment and is open to all colleagues, whether or not they identify with the scope of the group itself. We believe our ERGs and CPs play a critical role in creating allyship, education, resources, and positive change for our employees by our employees; they are a fundamental part of Genworth's identity.

We understand that having a truly diverse and inclusive group of colleagues, directly contributes to the growth and expansion of the business. It is our purpose to maintain a positive work environment that values individual similarities and differences in the workforce, workplace, and marketplace. Genworth intentionally seeks to attract, recruit, hire, develop and promote a deep and diverse pipeline of talent that translates to a workforce that will grow and flourish. These are key drivers of employee engagement and our success."

At Genworth we are wholeheartedly committed to creating an inclusive work environment where everyone feels safe to be their truest, most authentic self. We understand that true inclusivity is a journey and we continue to work hard every step of the way to ensure Genworth is a great place to work for all colleagues. Through our strong connections to our communities, we have developed relationships and initiatives with diverse organizations that support our desire to uplift and provide equitable opportunities to customers, community members, and prospective employees. We have also implemented several training initiatives and practices to help our employees become as inclusive and self-aware as possible. We are proud to be working toward a future where the diversity of our colleagues and leadership are entirely reflective of our stakeholders and the customers we serve.

It brings together the business community to address the inequities present in the communities we serve by having the necessary and, often, uncomfortable conversations that are critical to moving forward together. By becoming a signatory our CEO has pledged, on behalf of our organization, to continue working toward a more equitable future.
