Built on the inspirational values and legacy of its namesake, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., John Hancock’s MLK Scholars Program addresses a critical need in Boston—summer jobs for city youth. Each summer, we sponsor the employment of over 600 Boston teens at nearly 60 local nonprofit organizations—the largest summer jobs program of its kind in the United States. To elevate the work experience, John Hancock organizes a series of leadership forums, and provides access to an online financial literacy course.
Committed to strengthening the communities where we live and work, and our employees are our most valuable resource in doing so. Our volunteers give their time and talents to more than 100 projects annually, working together to make a lasting difference in the lives of others.
John Hancock and its parent company, Manulife, are committed to supporting supplier diversity and creating a supply chain that reflects the diverse communities we serve. The goal is to proactively encourage competitive consideration of diverse suppliers through purchasing contracts, allowing previously underutilized suppliers to become a vital part of our vendor portfolio. Procurement seeks to work with suppliers who look for ways to shape their businesses to meet the continuously changing environment.
