“We’ve been on a journey to live our values for years now, and our most important value is we respect the differences amongst us and encourage everyone to bring and be their true self at work. Our differences are what make us stronger. Our commitment to inclusion and the employee resource groups was and is to support employees and make sure that together we enhance the collective experience for all of us.” – CEO Jeff Dailey

We celebrate differences of thought, experience and identity that make us all unique, and are proud to be an award-winning place to work. Our Board of Governors and executive leadership team support our thriving employee resource groups (ERGs), which are open to all employees and include the Black Professionals Alliance, Disability Inclusion Group, Farmers Asian Alliance, Farmers Future, FarmersFit, LGBT & Allies, Parent Connect, Somos Farmers, Veterans & Advocates and Women’s Inclusion Network.

Black Professionals Alliance

The Black Professionals Alliance (BPA) helps Farmers attract, retain and develop talented business professionals who deliver value through thought leadership and inclusive insights in support of Farmers strategic priorities. BPA helps develop future leaders through access to leadership development programs and business literacy opportunities. It also facilitates networking and mentoring programs that aim to provide members with access to executive leadership, which in turn provide opportunities for visibility and exposure. And the BPA fosters education and awareness of the Black community and issues that cultivate a more inclusive workplace environment and experience.

Disability Inclusion Group

The Disability Inclusion Group (DIG) aims to promote awareness, provide education, and foster greater understanding of the disabilities and, in many cases, the challenges our employees, families, friends and customers encounter. Through open dialogue and focus topics, DIG seeks to provide a greater support network, the ability to participate in volunteer activities positively impacting the lives of our employees and communities, and recognition that all perspectives and experiences contribute to Farmers. 

Farmers Asian Alliance

Farmers Asian Alliance helps Farmers attract, retain and engage multicultural talent nationwide while expanding our customer base by building relationships with our agents, representatives, talent recruitment and employees in Asian community events across the country.

Farmers Future​​

​​​​​​​​​​​​​Farmers Future is focused on creating opportunities that promote cross-generational awareness, increased collaboration, and leadership development at Farmers.

FarmersFit

FarmersFit aims to promote total wellness including physical, emotional, social, mental and financial well-being by making positive lifestyle choices at work, home and in our communities.

LGBT & Allies

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​LGBT & Allies elevates LGBT considerations within the workplace to ensure a secure and inclusive environment for all. The focus is on increasing education and awareness so that everyone can bring their full and authentic selves to work.

Parent Connect

Parent Connect creates awareness and provides services that empower parents at Farmers to be their best at work and at home. As a community we also serve as a resource to Farmers product, marketing and HR teams, providing input and feedback from a parents’ perspective.

Somos Farmers

Somos Farmers works to further elevate Farmers by empowering our team to serve, retain and provide an outstanding experience for Hispanic and Latinx individuals. Somos Farmers helps educate and develop our employees while enriching our brand with the Hispanic and Latinx community.

Veterans & Advocates

Veterans & Advocates focuses on supporting our current veterans, as well as attracting more to Farmers by increasing awareness, understanding and respect for visible/invisible differences and supporting veterans through their transition to civilian/corporate life.

Women’s Inclusion Network

Our Women’s Inclusion Network (WIN) is a source of mentors, role models, sponsors and colleagues at Farmers who support the success of women at all levels. WIN aims to create an inclusive opportunity for all employees to expand their network of contacts, influence and knowledge. 

Supporting Diversity in Our Communities

  • Farmers has worked with the Congress of Racial Equality of California (CORE-CA) and has sponsored the Los Angeles Kingdom Day Parade in 2018, 2019, and 2020 with members of BPA and executives of Farmers participating in the parade.

  • Farmers Insurance Chief Executive Officer Jeff Dailey announced a series of commitments reinforcing the organization’s values via workplace and corporate citizenship initiatives:
    • Mobilizing the Farmers® (BPA), an Employee Resource Group, to help identify and elevate regular dialogue within senior leadership in an effort to continue listening, learning and finding tangible ways to show support for the Black community.
    • Donating $250,000 to the Los Angeles Urban League, an organization committed to advancing equal opportunities on behalf of African Americans and other minority groups.
    • Reinforcing the organization’s longstanding practice of encouraging employee volunteerism in their local communities, including supporting them with paid time outside of work to participate in safe, orchestrated efforts to rebuild neighborhoods.

  • Farmers had a unique opportunity to support students with social and learning differences such as autism spectrum disorder, who have frequently been under-served in their educational pursuits through STEM3 Academy, a pioneer in providing an outstanding, project-based, learning environment for bright students on the spectrum. Farmers has also supported Autism Speaks and the LA walk in 2018 and 2019.

  • Farmers sponsored Mental Health First Aid to pilot training sessions for our employees and community partners. Through these sessions participants learned how to identify the signs of mental illness.
