Our Commitment to Diversity, Equity and Inclusion 

Our Commitment to Diversity, Equity and Inclusion 

Mutual of Omaha’s leadership team has spent time listening and learning from diverse perspectives inside and outside our company. We can and must do more. Equipped with that deeper understanding, we have announced our commitment to the following actions.

Initiatives for Change 

Mutual of Omaha is committed to the following actions: 

Logo – We retired the Native American imagery associated with our corporate logo. Our new logo was designed with diverse input.

Additional Community Funding – We committed to $1 million in additional annual funding for community-based initiatives and non-profit organizations.

Management Training – We are providing our management team with additional training on diversity, equity and inclusion, including an expansion of unconscious bias training.

Recruiting Practices – We are enhancing our efforts to recruit, hire, promote, develop and retain a diverse workforce and performance expectations are being expanded to evaluate management progress in these areas.

Supplier Practices – We are developing a more robust supplier diversity strategy, proactively seeking out vendors from underrepresented communities and purchasing from suppliers who are demonstrably committed to social justice and racial equity.

I have been personally convicted and challenged by the racial injustice we’ve seen reflected in the events of 2020. I have been inspired to learn more and do more to bring others along.
