An Inclusive Culture

An Inclusive Culture

At Mutual of Omaha, we strive to create diverse teams, but we know that's not enough. We must maintain an unwavering focus on equity and conscious inclusion so that we create a culture where all can thrive. We do this because it's simply the right thing to do, but we've also discovered it delivers value to our customers.

How do we define inclusion? 

At Mutual of Omaha, when we refer to inclusion, we are describing a desired environment where everyone feels a sense of:

  • Belonging: connection and acceptance
  • Authenticity: the ability to openly express your true self, beliefs and opinions and the courage to be vulnerable
  • Respect: acknowledgement and validation of differences without judgement
  • Value: appreciation of unique perspectives and intentionally seeking and harnessing the richness of ideas from individuals with diverse backgrounds
  • Equity: fair and equal opportunities to succeed through active removal of intentional and unintentional barriers and inclusive decision making
  • Commitment: personal accountability for DEI efforts from the top down
