Supplier Diversity, Equity and Inclusion at ERIE

Supplier diversity statement

Dedication to Diversity, Equity and Inclusion

Statement from Chris Marsh

At Erie Insurance, we’re dedicated to purchasing goods and services from diverse suppliers within local communities where our Customers, Agents and Employees live and work. We foster an inclusive environment and that extends to our supplier community.

It's our goal to create an environment where all of our stakeholders—Customers, Agents, Employees, and Suppliers—comprise diverse individuals, perspectives and backgrounds.

We’re committed to fair and equitable access to sourcing and contractual opportunities, which align with ERIE’s cost, quality and delivery standards. We understand that a diverse supplier base encourages competition and leads to more innovative products and services.

We look forward to learning more about your organization!
