Diversity is an integral part of our Corporate Governance Principles, and the Committee actively considers diversity in recruitment and nominations of directors. The current composition of our Board reflects those efforts and the importance of diversity to the Board:
Four directors have worked outside the United States;
- One director is African-American;
- One director is Asian-American;
- One director is Hispanic; and
- Four directors are women.
Prudential has a long-standing commitment to Diversity and Inclusion which includes the use of diverse vendors. By leveraging the talent which comes in every color, gender, origin, religion, sexual orientation, and physical capability imaginable, Prudential seeks to provide opportunities to diverse firms within a deep pool of accomplished suppliers to the financial services industry. Our goal is to utilize these diverse firms as fully as possible and to establish long-term agreements with non-diverse vendor partners who share our vision for and dedication to supplier diversity.
