Communities prosper when people and organizations demonstrate resilience in the face of challenges and the confidence to achieve the future they envision.

Our Diversity, Equity and Inclusion

AFG is committed to a workplace where all employees feel included, empowered, and enabled to perform their best and where Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) are recognized as essential to our ongoing success. Our DEI efforts are fundamental to our ability to attract, develop, and retain a high-performing workforce, which we believe is critical to driving the Company’s operational and financial achievements.

Strategy and Beliefs

  • Our DEI strategy encompasses three key areas:
    • Organizational Culture
    • Learning and Development
    • Talent Acquisition
  • We believe that –
    • Diversity provides the potential for greater innovation and creativity
    • Equity creates the opportunities to release the potential, and
    • Inclusion enables us to realize the potential through involvement and engagement.

Working Groups and Committees

  • The Company supports several employee-led DEI working groups and committees focused on furthering DEI visibility and efforts.
  • As we seek to attract, develop, and retain a high-performing workforce, we grow and nurture strategic relationships with affinity groups, such as the National African-American Insurance Association (NAAIA).
  • The company's collaboration with NAAIA provides the opportunity for employee memberships, attendance at its annual conference, networking events, and a wide range of leadership and education workshops and seminars.
  • The company is also a proud supporter of the Association of Professional Insurance Women (APIW), a premier organization committed to the career advancement of women insurance professionals.
  • Our sponsorship of getWITit programming helps to promote a supportive environment where women of all backgrounds flourish in the field of technology and is an avenue to create opportunities for women to inspire others.

Learning and Development Opportunities

  • An important element to building a strong inclusive culture is to provide
    DEI-focused learning and development opportunities for our employees and leaders.
  • Building relationships and sharing ideas through mentoring and coaching relationships are essential elements to growing a diverse workforce.
