Diversity, Equity and Inclusion

Our differences make us stronger

“The Amica community is one where we all belong.”

— Shameem Awan, Assistant Vice President of Talent Development and Diversity, Equity and Inclusion.

At Amica, we strive to build a culture of belonging where employees are encouraged to share their unique experience to enrich our workplace, strengthen our company’s mission and broaden our vision of what’s possible.

Our evolving DEI strategy underpins everything we do to hire, promote and retain employees. We focus 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.
  • GROWING. We strive to recruit, hire and support people in ways that strengthen a diverse employee base, one that reflects our policyholders and the communities where we live. Our efforts have resulted in marked improvement over the past several years, 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.

We’re focused on creating a workplace that works for all. We’ll continue to provide training, guidance and resources to make Amica a true place of belonging for all employees.

“We’re committed to providing an inclusive environment where employees can be their authentic selves.”

— Sam Palmisano, Senior Vice President

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.

“It’s the similarities we share and the acceptance of our differences that make Amica.”

— Francis Diaz, Senior Strategic Designer
