“Supporting our diverse employees, agents, customers and communities is not only the right thing to do, it’s a business imperative,” said Greg Pfluger, chief information officer and an advisor to the company’s LGBT employee resource group. “Our employees and agents must feel they can be themselves at work to do their best in serving our diverse customer base.”
