Rating - Danger
High Risk


American International Group (AIG) canceled the insurance policy of former MLB player Curt Schilling after his outspoken support of former President Donald Trump. This termination happened despite AIG's discrimination policy that protects employees from political discrimination, indicating that this policy does not extend to customers. AIG also stopped investing and underwriting for new coal-based companies and plants in 2022. AIG scored an 80 out of 100 on the 2023-2024 Corporate Equality Index (CEI) from the Human Rights Campaign (HRC), a political stakeholder group. By complying with the HRC’s controversial demands, the company increases the risk of dividing employees, alienating customers and harming shareholders. The company provides a benefits package for employees which covers transgender medical procedures for covered employees and dependents, including children. It also uses sex and gender ideology criteria in employee recruitment, vendor selection, marketing, and philanthropic support. AIG forces employees to undergo multiple ideological trainings and uses its reputation, corporate funds, and political influence to support controversial sex and gender ideologies, organizations, and legislation. The company spoke out against North Carolina's bathroom bill excluding transgender women from using female bathrooms, HB2. AIG denounced the efforts in Georgia and in other states to secure election integrity through state legislation and has committed to multiple acts of advocacy for the LGBTQ community. The company’s CEO, Peter Zaffino, signed the CEO Action for Diversity & Inclusion pledge, which includes a commitment to promote DEI through bias education training in the workplace. AIG is a copper sponsor of Out & Equal and a corporate partner of the NGLCC. The company donated to the Equality PAC. For these reasons, AIG receives a High Risk rating.
