Diversity and inclusion

We stand together to do better

Our society still suffers from far too many cases of distrust, hatred, and racism. This is not the world we should accept as a society. We must push ourselves to influence change and create compassion. State Farm® has long been committed to helping build safer, stronger communities. We condemn all violence and harassment motivated by hatred and bigotry, and we embrace the responsibility to work with others to make the world around us better.

We're all in this together

Diversity and inclusion are central to everything we do. It’s evident in every relationship we have – within the workplace where all associates are treated with respect and dignity, across the marketplace by how we interact with our customers and suppliers, and in the community through charitable giving and community service.

Our commitment to diversity and inclusion is reflected in how we value relationships, how we conduct business, and how we lead our organization.

We embrace diversity and inclusion because it’s simply the right thing to do.

State Farm strives to be known for our commitment to diversity and inclusion. We are stronger and better together when we seek the broadest perspectives, invite fresh, new ideas and encourage healthy, respectful debate. But these are just words. We make this real when we each commit and empower ourselves to continue to nurture an environment where diversity and inclusion are welcome and expected in everything we do. Our customers and associates deserve nothing less.

Helping is at the heart of who we are. We're aware of the needs of others and the realities they face because we’ve been there. It's an understanding reflected in our values and in our rich history of giving back to the communities where we live and work. What matters to you matters to us.

Supplier Diversity

Running a business takes help from inside and outside the Company. We support a diverse supplier base to help meet the needs of the business, local communities, and customers. Our suppliers add to our team of good neighbors - together we work hard to deliver on the State Farm promise.

See the impact of supplier diversity.

Our diverse employees and independent contractor agents represent a wide spectrum of lived experiences that enrich the State Farm family. By leveraging the power of all of our associates’ perspectives and backgrounds and encouraging everyone to bring their authentic selves to work each day, we promote creativity in thinking, produce better solutions for our customers, and bring attention to organizational excellence. I am proud to work for a company that honors the unique ways our employees and independent contractor agents contribute to meeting the needs of our customers.
