AXA Proudly Sponsors 2014 New York City Pride Festival

Stocks in this article: AXAHY CS

AXA, a global financial protection and retirement leader, announced today that it is an official gold sponsor of NYC Pride 2014 (June 24-29), one of the largest Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender (LGBT) events in the nation.

“We are extremely proud to be a part of NYC Pride week through our sponsorship as well as our companywide participation,” said Mark Pearson, chairman and CEO of AXA. “As we march with Pride, our employees will help send the message of support to a broad audience to influence both local and global action. At AXA, we believe that small steps can have a big impact, and the collective steps of our customers, employees and stakeholders will lead to great strides in promoting inclusion worldwide.”

AXA was an industry pioneer in offering same-sex health care benefits to employees and life insurance benefits to same-sex couples. The company recently was recognized as one of the “best places to work” for LGBT equality by the Human Rights Campaign (HRC) Foundation, earning a perfect score of 100 percent on their 2013 Corporate Equality Index. AXA’s employee resource group, AXA Pride, creates and sustains an AXA presence in the LGBT community, fostering advocacy and action across the locations where AXA’s employees and clients live and work. AXA believes that an engaged workforce reflecting a diverse set of perspectives and experiences is essential to creating innovative life and retirement solutions for its broad client base.

“Diversity and inclusion is both a principle and a practice at AXA,” said Rino Piazzolla, chief human resources officer of AXA. “Our company has a long and proud history of supporting the LGBT community, and our sponsorship of NYC Pride is just one part of our steadfast commitment to creating a truly inclusive workplace.”

AXA will be participating in the Rally on June 27 at Hudson River Park, which is the official kick off to NYC Pride. AXA employees, led by CEO Mark Pearson, will march down Fifth Avenue on June 29 in the largest Pride celebration in the world. After the March, participants can visit the AXA booth at PrideFest, the annual LGBT street fair and concert series located on Hudson Street between Abigdon Square and West 14 th street.

AXA is also participating in Central New York (CNY) Pride on Saturday, June 21 st in Syracuse. Later this summer in North Carolina’s largest city, AXA will take part in the Charlotte Pride Parade and Festival on Saturday and Sunday, August 16 and 17.
