Showing allyship to drive lasting change
Never satisfied with the status quo in business or society, AIG colleagues take pride in acting decisively to stay ahead and actually drive and determine what’s next.
This aspiration to lead change with action goes hand-in-hand with our commitment to allyship.
AIG’s commitment to allyship is why we are proud to sponsor champion golfers Georgia Hall and Sophia Popov, and to call these extraordinary athletes AIG Ambassadors. They represent AIG, the game of golf and women athletes around the globe.
Our title sponsorship of the AIG Women’s Open is evidence of our dedicated pursuit of gender equity and gender pay equity. With this sponsorship, we aim to demonstrate our commitment to equitable recognition of exceptional achievements of women on the golf course, in the C-Suite and in society more broadly.
In 2021, the AIG Women’s Open and The R&A set a new benchmark with the announcement of the largest prize fund in women’s major championship golf. Increasing the purse by an additional $1 million in 2022 will more than double the prize fund from 2019 when AIG’s partnership with The R&A commenced.
These actions are tangible proof of our commitment to these elite women athletes and gender pay equity in women’s golf. Since setting this example, as hoped, other women’s major championships have followed our lead.
AIG remains committed to making ongoing demonstrations of allyship so that our colleagues and communities can reach their full potential.
