AXA Equtiable: Socially Responsible from the Bottom Up

AXA Equitable is more than just a financial management company; they are most importantly, a company that cares about its consumers and the world. In their summary of ethics, their first rule is to be honest, fair and obey the law. They have a dedicated line for reporting violations of not just the law but also their ethics code which has nearly 30 pages. Per their website they have six pillars of corporate responsibility: Responsibility in the workplace, in supplier connection and relations, in customer relations, in their governance model, for their environmental footprint, and to civil society. AXA sponsors many cultural festivals in the US and around the world, including last year’s Charlotte Dragon Boat Festival in honor of Asian-Pacific American Heritage month. For the fourth consecutive year, AXA will proudly support its employees marching in the New York City Pride Parade (over 240 employees registered to march with the company last year) while also financially supporting the parade in NYC and other cities nationwide.
