2021 became the year where we reassessed what mattered to us in Asia and focused on developing unique policies which made the largest impact on our employees, communities, and customers in the region. To ensure that no one was left behind, we put mental-health on the agenda, placed importance on hiring members of the community with disabilities, highlighted the importance of LGBTQ+I inclusion, promoted fair & equal opportunities in the workplace, enhanced leadership training and expanded our community partnerships with organizations like The Women’s Foundation, KELY Support Group, The Zubin Foundation and Pink Dot HK. But that wasn’t all! At Manulife, we know that in order of thrive together, we must be inclusive to our differences, as we ensure that every single one of us belongs.
Diversity is not defined by how different we are, but how similar we make everyone feel. And when we think about it the Mastercard Way, we think about not just a workplace, but a world where everyone belongs. Guided by our commitment to decency, we’re working to create an equal playing field with opportunities for all and access for those who have been traditionally marginalized.
We have developed robust support systems that ensure inclusive hiring practices, gender diversity, pay equity, status neutral benefits, and a fair representation of our entire workforce. We are empowering women on their professional journeys and putting our employees in control of their own career progression.
Beyond our own walls, we are innovating gender-inclusive solutions keeping in mind the needs of women, empowering women entrepreneurs, and building a steady pipeline of female talent in STEM careers to support the next generation of the technical workforce.
