At Marsh, we believe that it is essential to embed diversity and inclusion in our day-to-day business operations, creating one mission, vision, and purpose across the organization. Deeply rooted in our values and principles is the need to respect each colleague as an individual at Marsh. Colleagues are our most valued asset.
Diversity of thought, opinions, and skills set Marsh apart and help enable us to improve the services we provide to our clients.
We deliberately chose “inclusive” as one of our operating principles because we believe that being open to diverse ideas, experiences, and backgrounds is good for our colleagues, clients, and, ultimately, our business.
We are committed to fostering an inclusive culture that supports world class talent, and a work environment of mutual respect: one where all colleagues know they have an opportunity to contribute, grow and succeed.
Led by Marsh’s Chief Executive Officer, Peter Zaffino, the global Diversity & Inclusion Council helps ensure an increased and ongoing focus on diversity across Marsh’s businesses, functions, and regions. The council sets global standards and works with regions and businesses to help them develop region- and business-specific initiatives, report outcomes, and, ultimately, meet goals.
