American National is committed to fostering a culture that welcomes diverse talents and perspectives and uses varied insights to make us better. At American National, we believe our company is strongest when each member of our team is respected, treated fairly and comfortable to be who they are. We value the creativity and vitality that an inclusive workforce creates, and strive to embrace what makes each of us unique, including: race, ethnicity, culture, sexual orientation, gender, religion, age, personal style, and physical ability, as well as diverse opinions, perspectives, lifestyles, and ideas.
We are dedicated to continuing our progress toward diversity, equity and inclusion. We will strive to expand leadership opportunities within the organization to strengthen and reflect our commitment to equity and diversity. This commitment is represented in our corporate values of financial strength, integrity, respect, service and teamwork.
We are committed to diversity in the workplace and have long believed that diversity can enhance board effectiveness, improve corporate governance, and create the potential for greater long-term value for financial and non-financial stakeholders.
