Diversity, Equity and Inclusion

We’re a member of the Canadian Council for Aboriginal Business. We’ve begun the process to achieve Progressive Aboriginal Relations (PAR) certification, including commitments in employee representation and leadership action.
Our success depends on creating and maintaining a diverse, inclusive and respectful environment. Sun Life employees around the world are working together to bring that vision to life. Here’s how.
These voluntary, employee-led communities bring employees and allies together. They share an identity or perspective in one of the many diverse communities at Sun Life. They play an important role in fostering and embedding a culture of inclusion within Sun Life.
Several business groups across Sun Life have created task forces and committees to enact meaningful change. Each Allies Acting for Change (AAC) committee is focused on improving awareness and education on DE&I topics, and strengthening our ability to meet our commitments.
Leaders from across Sun Life’s many business groups work together to form a global council with diverse views. Together, they champion a wide range of programming to influence DE&I policies and practices across Sun Life.
