Diversity and inclusion

"Across the Sun Life organization, we want to reflect the diversity of our Clients and the communities in which we live and work, and support the dismantling of racial injustice, systemic racism, and institutionalized inequality. To build more diverse teams, as well as provide opportunities for people of all backgrounds to build meaningful careers with Sun Life, we are evolving all of our formal practices – from talent management and retention, to mentoring programs, to recruiting strategies and learning and development opportunities."

Dan Fishbein
President, Sun Life Financial U.S.

At Sun Life U.S. we understand the value of diverse cultures, perspectives and identities. Our employees are welcomed in an inclusive environment, where they are able to bring their full and authentic selves to work to achieve their best. By aspiring to reflect and connect with the communities where we live, work and do business, our organization can more effectively anticipate the unique needs of our Clients.

As a global industry leader committed to sustainability, Sun Life has a responsibility to help create lasting change. Our action plan focuses on three categories where we can make a meaningful difference:

  • Clients and Communities
  • Talent and Culture
  • Learning and Development

In addition to monetary donations, in the United States we have formed partnerships with the NAACP Legal Defense and Educational Fund, Inc. and the Smithsonian National Museum of African American History & Culture in Washington, D.C. These organizations support under-represented communities, with an emphasis on Black/African American coalitions and social justice reform.

Inclusion Networks

Our Inclusion Networks are voluntary, employee-led communities which play an important role in fostering and embedding a culture of inclusion within the organization.


We are in the business of making brighter futures happen—through our products and services and through our commitment to giving back to the communities in which we live, work, and do business.

Talent Acquisition

We are committed to a culture that continually seeks to attract, retain and develop high-performing, collaborative employees who represent the communities where we live, work and do business. If you are interested in joining our team, visit our careers site.

Recognition and Partnerships

Sun Life is routinely recognized as a top employer for our inclusive culture and the work we do to support our communities.
