Diversity, Equity & Inclusion
We celebrate and elevate the many backgrounds, heritages, and perspectives
represented by our clients, colleagues and communities.
Who you are is who we are.
Diversity, equity and inclusion are not only active conversations, but are consistent actions to drive change. You’ll see this commitment in our recruiting practices, Unconscious Bias Training, Allyship Workshops, Colleague Resource Groups and MMA Voices events. We are actively building and supporting a diverse colleague community.

A Culture of Belonging
DE&I leadership and engagement is apparent throughout Marsh McLennan. From our Chief DE&I Officer to our newest colleagues and Northwest DE&I Council, everyone has an opportunity to lead, participate, and share their unique stories.
Why is DE&I important enough to you to carve out some of your work time to devote to it?
“I have always believed that one person can make a difference and I am honored to try to make a difference when it comes to DE&I. If I can move the dial even a little and help empower someone else, or just create a space where they can be authentic, then that is the difference I am striving for.”
Jenel Harju, Senior Client Relations Director
“It fosters creativity, fresh perspectives, and understanding, leading to new ways of solving problems, developing products and services, and understanding the world around us.”
Dominique Easterling, Sales Executive
“Everyone is different and should feel worthy; and if we’re going to spend a lot of time at work, then everyone should feel accepted in the workplace.”
Daisy Tran, Claim Specialist
“Besides the undeniable business reasons…if everyone has a voice, then everyone will feel they belong, and we all long to belong!”
Sarah Walsh, Chief Executive Officer
Lifting up voices and raising awareness.
We provide colleagues with the resources and opportunity to perform the internal work of diversity, equity and inclusion while also finding concrete ways to make MMA Northwest a more equitable organization, including:
Colleagues with diverse experiences lead panel discussions highlighting the realities surrounding social injustices, such as gender inequality or racism in the workplace.
Through this course, colleagues learn to recognize their own unconscious bias, realize its impact, and incorporate new skills to overcome bias.
Peer-led workshops for colleagues to explore what it means to be an ally and specific ways to align their words and actions.
Bring your whole self to work.
Join an organization that welcomes and celebrates who you are.
