Our commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion


We want a culture that values everyone’s contributions and perspectives

Our goal is to foster a workplace that is caring, diverse, and inclusive. We want Allianz Life Insurance of North America (Allianz) to be a place where employees can bring their authentic selves to work every day, and we want our workforce to reflect our community. It is a daily effort.

We know that having employees who have different life experiences helps us innovate, grow, and succeed in our mission – we secure your future. This is about more than better business outcomes. We believe we have a responsibility to help make our society more equitable.

Our commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion touches all that we do – both within Allianz and in our greater community. All people at Allianz are part of this commitment, starting with our leaders.

We have been working intentionally toward these goals for a long time and will continue to advance diversity, equity, and inclusion.”
