"Diversity & Inclusion transcends the workplace - it also shapes how we interact with our customers and our communities. It is simply how we do business." — Lisa Buckingham, executive vice president and chief people, place and brand officer

At Lincoln Financial Group, Diversity & Inclusion is an enduring strategy and a set of practices that help us to realize the full potential of our organization and all of our stakeholders. We practice diversity and inclusion in every aspect of our business: in our relationships with current and prospective employees, our customers, and the communities in which they all reside. 

A Rewarding Career Experience 

People are fundamental to everything we do. Our more than 12,000 employees across the country are our most important asset, and they drive our success. We believe that Diversity & Inclusion strengthens and inspires our organizational culture, expands our access to the best and brightest people in the industry, and creates a rewarding workplace experience for everyone. 

A More Empowered Business World 

Diversity & Inclusion also facilitates idea exchange, where we’re able to embrace a variety of perspectives and new ideas across our organization to foster innovation. In turn, this empowers us with insight and opportunities to penetrate new markets and to meet specific customer needs. Within retail markets, we offer a wide range of financial products, advisory services and tools — resources that can help individuals, families and business owners from every constituency take charge of their financial futures. 

A More Confident Future for Our Neighbors 

The communities where we live and work are an important part of who we are as a company. Being a good corporate citizen is not only the right thing to do, it is integral to our overall success. We positively impact thousands of lives each year through smart and sustainable investments in our professional association partnerships, as well as the Lincoln Financial Foundation, our philanthropic arm. 

At Lincoln Financial we believe diversity of thought, background, experience and people drive innovation, support our growth objectives, and produce results that differentiate Lincoln in today's marketplace. Diversity & Inclusion is fundamental and essential to our ability to deliver on our promise to help customers secure their financial futures.

Our Commitment to Diversity & Inclusion

In 2017, Lincoln’s CEO, Dennis Glass, signed the CEO Action for Diversity & Inclusion pledge, the largest CEO-driven business commitment to diversity and inclusion. Together, the signatories pledge to take further action to cultivate a workplace where diverse perspectives and experiences are welcomed and respected; where employees feel encouraged to discuss diversity and inclusion; and where best practices and lessons learned are shared across the organization. 

Employee-led Diversity & Inclusion

Lincoln has seven Business Resource Groups (BRGs) comprised of an inclusive, internal group of employees selected to represent a cross-section of businesses and/or functions throughout the organization. The groups then focus on supporting business and diversity objectives by identifying opportunities to enhance Lincoln's brand and market presence to the constituency consumer.

Lincoln’s BRGs include: African American, Asian American, Latino, LGBTQ, People with disAbilities, Veterans and Women.
