Lincoln Financial Group Named An Uptown Professional Top Company For Diversity And Inclusion

RADNOR, Pa., June 3, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --  Lincoln Financial Group (NYSE: LNC) announced today that it has been named one of the Top Companies and Organizations for Diversity & Inclusion by Uptown Professional , a quarterly, business and careers publication for the urban global professional. Launched in 2011, the list spotlights 50 companies this year and it is the first time that Lincoln Financial Group has been recognized.

"We congratulate all of our winners, including Lincoln Financial Group," said Robert Ingram, Publisher of Uptown Professional. "While other similar recognition programs exist, we created our own in order to spotlight those often hidden jewels that aren't always discovered through traditional channels. Our top companies have some of the most diverse and inclusive rosters and bench strength in terms of their top executives and boards of directors. The inclusion in senior ranks of persons of color and women is a factor that weighed heavily in terms of companies we chose to recognize."

The publishers and editors of Uptown Professional magazine chose the final list of winners from hundreds of companies and organizations based upon several key criteria:  
  • Persons of color and women included on the Board of Directors.
  • Noteworthy representation of diverse individuals in senior-level management.
  • Recognition by authoritative media, diverse professional and community based associations and organizations.
  • Robust supplier/vendor diversity programs.
  • Active and engaged affinity, employee network and resource groups.
  • Support of multi-cultural focused and owned media.

"We are honored to be recognized as one of Uptown Professional's Top Companies and Organizations for Diversity and Inclusion," said Allison Green, senior vice president and chief diversity officer for Lincoln Financial Group. "We're focused on continually developing practices and opportunities where diversity and inclusion are not only respected, but leveraged as assets in the workplace, financial markets and in our local communities."
