At MassMutual Ascend, our collaborative culture is key to our success. It’s the reason we’re a leading provider of annuities today, and it’s the reason we’ll continue rising to the top tomorrow. We work together to achieve results by listening, seeking, understanding and creating solutions as a unified team.

In addition to creating a diverse and inclusive workplace, we recognize the economic imperative of ensuring that all businesses have access to opportunities to grow and thrive. Together with MassMutual, we are working to expand our base of suppliers, making intentional investments in diverse supplier development. These efforts help ensure that the companies we do business with reflect our own values, and that our spending aligns with our priorities.
