Diversity and inclusion at work



Work like a good neighbor

Our workplace is shaped by how we interact with each other and our customers. Every conversation, every new idea, and every interaction is influenced by our good neighbor philosophy. State Farm associates work together to create an environment that invites different viewpoints, and where the unique qualities of each associate are respected and valued. We are made stronger by the diverse talents and experiences we bring to our work, and we’re united in serving our customers.

Our Employee Resource Groups (ERGs) offer a way for employees to connect, learn, and share insights that benefit them, the Company, our customers, and our communities.

ERGs at State Farm are formed around the following groups:

  • Asian
  • Black/African American
  • Generations
  • Hispanic/Latino/Latina
  • LGBTQ
  • Men
  • Military
  • Parents/Families
  • People with Disabilities
  • Women

ERGs support the business and engage employees in many ways including:

  • Promoting networking, mentoring and employee development activities
  • Providing diverse perspective on business challenges and opportunities
  • Fostering community relationships through outreach and volunteerism
  • Building awareness of diverse cultures

In addition, State Farm ERGs positively impact our neighborhoods by awarding Company-funded grants to various non-profit organizations of ERG members’ choosing. Some of the work done by these non-profits includes:

  • Supporting active/veteran military personnel and their families
  • Combating hunger and homelessness for at-risk groups, including LGBTQ youth
  • Empowering women to achieve economic independence
  • Serving as liaisons in matters affecting Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders in the areas of education, immigration, health, and civil rights
  • Providing comprehensive services to individuals with disabilities and their families
  • Mentoring, serving and assisting Black/African American youth to help realize their potential and become successful adults
  • Advancing equality by offering educational opportunities on topics such as racism and human rights
  • Offering free legal services to low income persons
  • Inspiring Hispanic/Latino families to make healthy choices by providing access to affordable resources

We’re proud of the differences that make us who we are. Take a look at how we connect and learn from each other.
