Celebrating Diversity, Equity & Inclusion at Assurant

Our Differences Make Us Stronger

Global Diversity, Equity & Inclusion at Assurant

At Assurant, we celebrate the differences that make us who we are. By assembling extraordinary teams from a variety of races, religions, sexual orientations, gender identities, ages and abilities, we’re able to better reflect the global communities where we live and work. By working to remove barriers, we ensure equity for everyone. The pursuit of inclusion rests with each of us. Because it’s only by listening to the unique voices of every individual that we can innovate for all.
