Diversity and Inclusion are vital to the mission and long-term success of AIG. At AIG, we are an international organization in every sense of the word, going back to our roots in Shanghai in 1919. Today, we continue to have one of the largest insurance networks in the world, with more than 85 million clients spanning more than 130 countries. We take our commitment to building, developing and retaining a talented, diverse, and inclusive workforce and supply chain seriously. At AIG, we value diverse ideas, thinking styles, backgrounds and skills.
Not only are we committed to identifying and hiring outstanding talent, we are also committed to developing our employees. We’ve implemented a number of diversity development programs for both men and women, and are continually growing our internal infrastructure for diversity and inclusion—to enhance employee engagement, mentoring, collaboration and networking. In general, our goal is to broaden the types of opportunities and experiences available to employees at every level.
AIG sponsors a number of internal and external activities in support of our employees. The company annually hosts a Global Forum for Women. We participate in the Out and Equal Conference, conferences for employees with disabilities, Wounded Warriors, and invite members of our employee resource groups to join our campus recruiting teams. AIG also affirmed its longstanding commitment to consider all qualified candidates for employment by signing the White House's best practices to assist long-term unemployed Americans.
We make available Inclusion education for all employees. And our annual Employee Engagement Survey provides feedback to executives on how our employees view the level of inclusion within the company.
AIG also places importance on Supplier Diversity. It is AIG’s policy to proactively seek out certified diverse-owned enterprises and ensure opportunities for these businesses to participate in the sourcing and procurement process.
