“MetLife promotes the hiring, development, and support of people with disabilities so they can move forward in their careers and realize their potential,” said Dr. Cindy Pace, MetLife’s global chief diversity and inclusion officer. “We are proud to be recognized for our commitment to a workplace where all employees can share their unique abilities, experiences and talents.”
