Inclusion is about humility
On the heels of the Chauvin verdict, American Family Inclusive Excellence Vice President Yasir Kamal discusses how we’re helping communities and improving diversity and inclusion at our company.
I started my journey at American Family Insurance as a local agency owner and spent several years as a sales leader.
Building relationships with customers and the community, I became passionate about the importance of inclusion.
People increasingly want to do business with companies that are humble enough to listen, speak up and take a stand on issues that matter to them, including diversity, equality, equity and inclusion.
Community members, customers and current and future employees not only want to see themselves reflected in our marketing materials, they also want to feel welcome in our spaces, respected by our people and confident that we’ll show up for them — no matter what.
It’s why we remain committed to diversity, equity and inclusion.
