Liberty Mutual Insurance
As director of employee enablement for Liberty Mutual Insurance, Omari Jahi Aarons works to celebrate employees’ career-level achievements and design a workplace culture that enables them to do their best work. Aarons started his career at Apple and later joined Macy’s as part of its executive development program. He progressed quickly to the director level, concurrently leading a training team and the customer service division’s mentorship and executive development programs. He is the inaugural president of the Boston chapter of the National African American Insurance Association and recently completed a three-year term as the national co-chair of Liberty’s employee resource group for employees of African descent. In September, he received the 10 Outstanding Young Leaders Award from the Greater Boston Chamber of Commerce.
“I’m hopeful the industry will embrace the energy and passion surrounding us in this moment to drive meaningful and significant change in racial and gender diversity,” Aarons says. “Our opportunity to be more innovative, think ahead of the curve and reflect the customers we serve is intricately tied to opening up our teams and intentionally adding seats for women and people of color.”
