Diversity Dialogues

With Jacques Goulet, President, Sun Life Canada - a series of events for employees designed to support ongoing discussions and education on important DE&I issues

Inclusion networks

Employee resource groups for many marginalized groups of people

DE&I glossary

To create a consistency with the terminology we use in communications (both internally and externally)

Sub-advisor screening & measurement

We have been monitoring and measuring our sub-advisors commitment to DE&I since 2018
