    Diversity and Inclusion

    At Erie Insurance, one way that we deliver on our promise to be a great workplace is to foster, promote and celebrate diversity.

    When our Founders H.O. Hirt and O.G. Crawford started an insurance exchange in 1925, they turned to the Golden Rule as a guiding principle and it continues to influence us today. Through the decades, fairness and integrity continue to guide both our behavior and our organizational policies and practices. Our inclusive environment makes it possible for all employees to make the most of the opportunities. We believe that when each of us contributes our best, we uphold ERIE's values and support our ability to grow our talent and our business.

    Diversity and inclusion in action at ERIE

    Our Diversity and Inclusion Department was founded formally in 2010. The following year we enrolled employees in awareness workshops to ensure a common understanding of ERIE’s commitment to diversity and its impact on our business. Since then, we developed an internal faculty of employees who are certified to facilitate diversity training.

    ERIE takes a broad approach to problem solving and innovation and aligns cross-functional teams of employees to our diversity and inclusion business strategy. The teams that work with our Diversity and Inclusion Department include:


    We’re honored to earn the recognition of several organizations, including being named a top insurance company by Black EOE JournalHispanic Network Magazine and Professional Women's Magazine.

    ERIE has ranked highly for several years on the Corporate Equality Index, a national benchmark on corporate policies and practices related to LGBT workplace equality. The Human Rights Campaign Foundation administers the index.

    For ERIE, all of these milestones are a part of our diversity and inclusion journey. We know that by committing to this work, we’ll have teams that have a greater understanding of people who touch their lives and they will be able to think more creatively to address the business challenges and opportunities that lie ahead.

    Erie Insurance is an equal opportunity employer.
