Spotlight: progress and positive outcomes

Lincoln Financial has and continues to see progress and positive outcomes in the workplace resulting from our D&I strategy. Over the last decade, our women and minority executive and general populations have reflected incremental, positive change year-over-year, such that Lincoln Financial exceeds industry and government benchmarks in the majority of these categories. We are especially proud that women comprise 61 percent of our total workforce, and women hold 50 percent of all management positions.1
