Assured Guaranty Supports Diversity, Equality, Inclusion And Justice

June 10, 2020

Assured Guaranty strongly supports diversity, equality and inclusion. Persistent injustices must be stopped if we are to live in a society where we are free, safe and respected, and we believe Assured Guaranty has a social responsibility to support and encourage fair treatment for all.  

Long-standing and systemic inequities in society – in access to healthcare, in criminal justice, in employment and in everyday social interactions – have been exposed, once again, by the current pandemic and recent racially biased incidents.

We are united with all those who believe in the rule of law, in laws that are fair, and in equal treatment and justice under the law. We are united with those who speak out against unjust acts of violence - where the perpetrators have too often escaped accountability - and we respect government officials who seek both to protect the rights of free speech and assembly and to preserve public safety.

Everyone is entitled to equal rights and opportunities and to have their voices heard. Assured Guaranty is committed to providing equal employment opportunities, promoting inclusion and diversity in our workforce, forbidding racial and other forms of discrimination, and striving every day to maintain a working environment based upon mutual respect and cooperation.

In support of these ideals, we are making a corporate contribution of $100,000 to the NAACP Legal Defense and Educational Fund. Additionally, through a new effort to support our employees’ interest in building a more fair and harmonious world, we will match, dollar for dollar, eligible donations they make to charitable organizations whose work promotes a more equitable society.
