Diversity, Equity and Inclusion

A message from Human Resources

Hello!

At Amica, our differences make us stronger, and we encourage employees to share their unique views and insights. Through diversity, we grow, create richer experiences and strengthen our culture.

Our DEI strategy has a positive effect on our entire Amica community, and translates into everything we do to hire, promote and retain employees. In short, we’re focused on:

Belonging

We want each of our employees to know they can be their authentic self here – and that they’re a truly valued part of something larger.

Diversity

We strive to recruit and hire in ways that strengthen a diverse employee base – and become a more accurate reflection of our insureds and the communities we live in. This is an area where we’ve seen marked improvement over time, but there’s still work to be done.

Listening

We’re constantly learning from our employees and looking for ways to improve their connection to Amica. Beyond analyzing employment data for relevant trends, we encourage employee feedback and host regular engagement surveys.

Our commitment to DEI remains steadfast as we implement our current strategy. We’ll continue to provide training, guidance and access to information for all employees to make Amica a true place of belonging for everyone.

Amica’s Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Mission Statement

We acknowledge that DEI goes beyond just race and gender. It covers the many aspects of ourselves and the diversities each of us brings to work every day. DEI can enhance how we interact with our co-workers and our customers, and it shows that all individuals are valued for who they are.

We’re an Equal Opportunity Employer

Amica welcomes and encourages diversity in the workforce. We’re committed to creating and maintaining an environment in which each employee can contribute creative ideas, seek challenges, and continue to focus on meeting and exceeding business and personal objectives.

Our Approach to Diversity, Equity and Inclusion

Diversity

Diversity represents our collective unique traits and characteristics, both visible and invisible, which together make us stronger. We’ll proactively and intentionally embrace diversity.

Equity

Equity seeks to ensure fair treatment, equality of opportunity and fairness in access to information and resources for all. We believe this is only possible in an environment built on respect and dignity. Equity reflects respect. Everything we do as individuals and employees comes from a place of respect.

Inclusion

Inclusion allows for everyone to feel welcome, appreciated and valued for who they are. Our leaders will create a safe space for dialogue and feedback.

Our Work

Amica welcomes and celebrates a diverse workforce.

We recognize the key to a welcoming, inclusive work environment is to honor and celebrate our unique backgrounds and beliefs.

The Road Ahead

Amica’s Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Strategy for 2021-2023

Over the next three years, Amica will continue to strengthen our DEI base while exploring new opportunities for the initiative’s further expansion into belonging and equity:

  • Broaden our candidate pools, expand diverse hiring and increase the promotion and retention of diverse employees.
  • Use biennial engagement surveys to review all aspects of diversity and analyze diversity-related metrics, while continuing to research additional business intelligence reports as they become available.
  • Deliver training and communications on diversity, equity, inclusion and belonging that address specific issues raised by our employees.
  • Emphasize respect and the empathy of our employees and customers through ongoing training.

Corporate Social Responsibility

At Amica, we fervently believe our commitment to creating supportive communities that set people up for success extends beyond our company walls to the places where we live and work.

That’s why we proudly support myriad organizations that promote well-being, fairness and opportunity for all members of the community, including those focused on education, health, arts and culture, and public affairs.

We also take great pride in the giving nature of our employees, and make it easy for them to get involved on an individual level through volunteer time, donation matches and grants.

Our Pledge

Amica CEO Robert A. DiMuccio has joined nearly 2,000 other top executives in signing the CEO Action for Diversity & Inclusion pledge. CEO Action was founded on a shared belief that diversity, equity and inclusion is a societal issue, not a competitive one, and that collaboration and bold action from the business community – especially CEOs – are vital to driving change at scale.

Included in the pledge are four main goals that business leaders are asked to commit to:

  1. Continue to make our workplaces trusting places to have complex, and sometimes difficult, conversations about diversity and inclusion.
  2. Implement and expand unconscious bias education.
  3. Share best – and unsuccessful – practices.
  4. Create and share strategic inclusion and diversity plans with our board of directors.
