Diversity in leadership
Principal has a long-standing commitment to diversity and inclusion: Principal added our first female board member almost 50 years ago, and we’ve had minorities on our Board for more than 20 years. Our longest-serving female board member joined in 1992.
Today, 42% of our C-Suite are women, and women and minorities make up 62% of the members of our Board. We have 10 employee resource groups that are highly focused on cultivating relationships and contributing to business growth.
