MetLife's Amanda Barkus in Hispanic Career World Magazine

Amanda Barkus, AVP, Head of IT Strategy and Software Engineering Operations at MetLife has appeared on the cover of Hispanic Career World Magazine.

Inside, Amanda features in an impressive article discussing her involvement with MetLife's commitment to diversity.

"This article reflects MetLife's investment in technology and our focus on Diversity and Inclusion. It is a privilege for me to be part of the MetLife team, and I am hugely proud to have been selected for the cover of this magazine," commented Amanda. 

Recognizing MetLife's commitment to diversity

"It's been proven that organisations that have ethnic and gender diversity are more creative, innovative and demonstrate better decision-making and problem-solving," says Amanda. "This is why I wanted to work for a company that not only embraced diversity but recognized diversity in their workforce as a strategic asset."

"MetLife's commitment to diversity was appealing as a potential employer. I saw this commitment to diversity reflected in their recognitions, which include Working Mother magazine: 100 Best Companies (19 years) and Hispanic Association in Corporate Responsibility's Corporate Inclusion Index (4 years). These recognitions resonated with me because they show that MetLife is taking significant measures to cultivate an environment that conducive for women and employees from diverse backgrounds to succeed."

"I had many mentors, coaches and sponsors who helped me throughout my career. I want to pay it forward and share the resources and insight they provided to me to the women at MetLife," added Amanda.
