MetLife, Inc. (NYSE: MET) today announced that it has earned a place on Seramount’s 2021 Top Companies for Executive Women list. The survey evaluated MetLife on aspects of women’s advancement, including succession planning, profit-and-loss roles, gender pay parity, support programs, and work-life balance. This is the 14th time MetLife has been recognized as a top workplace for women who want to advance to the most senior levels.

Through its Gender Equity Initiative, MetLife is building a diverse, equitable, and inclusive company for women across four focus areas: leadership, workforce, marketplace, and community and sustainability. The initiative provides inclusive leadership development and offers women a variety of career support programs, including peer mentoring groups such as Lean In Circles and Women’s Business Networks, and workplace policies and benefits that support flexibility and work-life integration.

MetLife was the first U.S.-based insurer to sign the UN Women’s Empowerment Principles (WEPs), a series of pledges designed to promote gender equality in the workplace. In October, MetLife China received the 2021 China Women's Empowerment Principles Leadership and Action Award from UN Women in honor of the organization’s exceptional efforts to advance diversity, equity and inclusion in the workplace and its support for fair employment and career development of women in the insurance industry.
