HARTFORD, Conn.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- The Travelers Companies, Inc.

“Scoring 100 percent on the Corporate Equality Index for another year is a testament to our diversity and inclusion efforts, and we’re extremely proud of the recognition,” said Fred Colon, Chief Diversity & Inclusion Officer at Travelers. “We’re committed to creating a welcoming environment that brings people together with different backgrounds and perspectives to encourage innovation and the sharing of new ideas – it helps us maintain a culture where employees feel valued, respected and supported.”

The company supports diversity and inclusion in many ways.
