The Teachers Insurance and Annuity Association of America is the leading provider of financial services and insurance for employees in academia, medicine, research, and government. Launched in 1918 by the Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching to “help teachers retire with dignity,” the company has grown extensively to include more than 5 million clients and over $1 trillion in combined assets under management. TIAA made history when in March 2021 Thasunda Brown Duckett succeeded retiring chief Roger W. Ferguson Jr., rendering the company the first of the Fortune 500 to be led by two Black CEOs in a row. In May, TIAA announced its commitment to achieving net-zero carbon emissions in its General Account by 2050.
