DiversityInc recognizes American Family among the nation’s top companies for diversity and inclusion. 

American Family Insurance has been named a 2019 DiversityInc Noteworthy company.  

The DiversityInc Top 50 list, issued yearly since 2001, recognizes the nation’s top companies for diversity and inclusion. These companies excel in such areas as hiring, retaining and promoting women, minorities, people with disabilities, LGBT people and veterans.

More than 1,800 companies were evaluated for inclusion on the Top 50 list. The Noteworthy list is comprised of 40 additional companies whose data indicates they have the potential to make The DiversityInc Top 50. These companies are judged by the same criteria, based on responses in the following areas:

  • Talent Pipeline
  • Talent Development
  • Leadership Accountability
  • Supplier Diversity

“Our commitment to creating and maintaining an inclusive culture is stronger than ever, and this recognition reflects that,” said Tyler Whipple, diversity and inclusion director. “We’re clearly moving in the right direction and establishing ourselves as a leader in diversity and inclusion.”

American Family was also recently recognized this year as a best place to work for LGBTQ equality and made the Forbes Best Employers for Diversity list this year.
