Inclusion & Diversity
Inclusion and diversity are embedded in Aon's global strategy and the development goals of our leaders, and apply to many areas of our daily operations. On a very practical and local level, this is the point of the I&D Council in Poland.
We support, celebrate and enhance opportunities for people from diverse backgrounds. We work to develop an Aon United culture that allows everyone working at Aon to be themselves and thus bring the best to our organization.
We do this by:
- Educating colleagues about the meaning and value of diversity
- Supporting Aon initiatives and programs of diversity for colleagues
- Promoting open dialog around inclusion and diversity
