TIAA’s Thasunda Brown Duckett on Gender Parity in Retirement

Thasunda Brown Duckett is the President and CEO of TIAA. TIAA ranked No. 8 on The DiversityInc Top 50 Companies for Diversity list in 2022.


Thasunda Brown Duckett, President and CEO of TIAA, commented on what it will take to reach gender parity in retirement, especially for Black and brown individuals.

Forty percent of households in America expect to run short of income in retirement. This is especially detrimental for women and diverse populations.

“For TIAA, part of our mission is to lead the fight for retirement security, and I invite you to join us,” said Duckett. “We are doing all we can to raise awareness, particularly for those who don’t have any access to the retirement system currently. We’re sharing our concerns and ideas everywhere we can, from the halls of Congress and state legislatures to our clients and through the media.

“If we operate with intentionality and urgency, we can make significant progress and improve the lives of millions of people. Together, we can drive change in our offices and in our country to close the opportunity gap, the pay equity gap and the retirement income gap  for— good.”
