For over 175 years, New York Life has been a strong proponent of women in the workforce. From hiring its first female employee in 1885 to appointing its first female director in 1947, New York Life has been a trailblazer in its commitment to diversity and inclusivity. Today, women make up 58% of New York Life’s workforce and 36% of its board.
