CEO, Todd Combs on GEICO's Diversity & Inclusion

Diversity not only makes our company stronger, but it also makes us better equipped to serve our customers and communities. It is our belief that our commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion is foundational to our corporate culture and is a primary business imperative in how we care for our customers and the communities we serve. We recognize that many of our associates and customers are burdened by actions impacting their communities. Our commitment to inclusion and equity also includes standing with communities experiencing inequities and oppression through our ERGs, community service, and philanthropy.
