Fostering a Culture of Inclusion and Giving at New York Life

Below is an article originally written by PowerToFly Partner New York Life Insurance Company. Go to New York Life's page on PowerToFly to see their open positions and learn more.

Throughout our history New York Life has always assisted those in need. Now Cheryl James, Associate General Counsel at New York Life, continues that tradition while ushering in a new era of community giving and social good. Cheryl's inspiring efforts were recently detailed in an article by Profile Magazine.

Cheryl joined the company in January of 2017, the same year we launched the #InclusionMatters Challenge, in which employees formed teams to complete inclusion tasks such as unconscious bias training.

"Diverse life experiences create new ways of thinking…You get such a wealth of information from different viewpoints, and when everyone has the opportunity to express themselves we can innovate and solve problems in the most effective ways."

— Cheryl James, Associate General Counsel

From the moment Cheryl began working here she became involved in numerous service initiatives throughout the company. She helps coordinate activities for the company's month of service and charitable giving campaigns, in which fundraisers such as bake sales and a charity bike ride raise money for community initiatives.

She also uses her professional knowledge for good, as a member of the pro bono committee that helps facilitate opportunities for members of our legal team to use their legal expertise to give back to the community. Her team reaches out to nonprofits that provide legal services in New York City and organizes projects that attorneys contribute to.

Cheryl is also a member of the core leadership team for the African American employee resource group. The group champions collaboration and professional development through company-wide workshops and events.

While New York Life has earned a perfect score on the 2018 Human Rights Campaign, Corporate Equality Index and the diversity of our workforce has been recognized by inclusion in the Forbes 2018 List of Best Employers for Diversity as well as DiversityInc's 2018 list of the Top 50 Companies for Diversity, our top accomplishment may be the longevity of our employees. "New York Life is a company where people never want to leave" according to Cheryl. A culture built on "doing the right thing" provides ample sources of pride for employees like her who are propelling us into an even brighter future.
