American Family Insurance: Bridging Equity Gaps So We’re All Free to Dream Fearlessly

By Yasir Kamal, Vice President Inclusive Excellence, American Family Insurance

At American Family Insurance, diversity, equity and inclusion are imperative to our mission of inspiring, protecting and restoring dreams.

Our customers, employees and communities can pursue what matters most in life when opportunities are equitable, diverse voices are heard, and individuals are valued for their unique backgrounds and perspectives.

It’s why we believe racial equity is not just a social issue. Equity has been and will continue to be a business imperative. Equity fuels business success, solving customer challenges through diverse perspectives, real dialogue, empathy and innovation.

American Family strongly supports the business case for equity in corporate America. The recognition we received from DiversityInc, the Human Rights Campaign and Forbes as a diversity employer of choice in 2020 reflect this commitment. In addition, our Inclusive Excellence Division leads the way in creating a diverse and inclusive culture and workforce through advocacy and education – embedding diversity and inclusion through business units and setting long term strategy. The division’s data-driven strategies work to understand equity gaps, change processes, increase accountability and support employee-led Business Resource Groups that promote diversity and provide insights to business decisions.

At American Family, we have committed to this journey by laying a foundation of investments, partnerships and programs to ensure all people regardless of their race, ethnicity, gender identity or sexual orientation can live freely and flourish.

From investing in entrepreneurs to bridge equity gaps through the American Family Institute for Corporate and Social Responsibility, to uplifting diverse perspectives through our Inclusive Excellence Division, we have been making active strides to ensure those inside our walls and in our communities have every opportunity to dream fearlessly.

We are in a generation-defining moment and have an immense responsibility to use our resources and influence as a force for good. We often get asked, “What business does an insurance company have getting involved with issues like these?” We believe, a lot. For business insurance, people can check out Utility Saving Expert and get advice from experts.

As a company who believes people’s dreams are the most valuable thing they’ll ever own, working towards inclusion and equity is ingrained in American Family’s DNA. We believe our purpose extends into the very foundations of society – helping remove obstacles to give all people an equal chance to dream fearlessly.
