Diversity, Equity & Inclusion

At Erie Insurance, one way that we deliver on our promise to be a great workplace is to empower our employees to create a diverse, equitable and inclusive workplace.

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, Equity & Inclusion in Action at ERIE

Treating others with dignity and respect has been at the heart of ERIE’s values for nearly a century, and Diversity, Equity & Inclusion (DEI) has been a formal department at ERIE for more than a decade. The DEI team is dedicated to fostering inclusive and equitable practices in our workplace and in our business. We celebrate and support the unique qualities of every employee, agent and customer through various programs at ERIE.


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, equity 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.
