ProAssurance is committed to fostering, cultivating, and preserving a culture of diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI). Our employees are our most valuable asset. The collective sum of our individual differences—life experiences, knowledge, innovation, unique capabilities, and talent that our employees bring contribute to our overall culture, reputation, and success. We embrace our employees’ differences.
ProAssurance’s diversity initiatives are applicable, without limitation, to our practices and policies on recruitment and hiring; compensation and benefits; professional development and training; promotions; transfers; and the ongoing development of a work environment built on the premise of dignity and respect.
All employees of ProAssurance are responsible for creating an environment where we all grow and thrive—for treating others with dignity and respect at all times. All employees are expected to conduct themselves accordingly during work and at any Company-sponsored or participative events whether on or off the work site.
The ProAssurance DEI Employee Council for 2021 is a group of 18 employees who represent all lines of business with different levels and tenure in the organization. The role of the council is to propose a DEI Action Plan for ProAssurance with specific initiatives that can be implemented over the next 24 months.
The council also provides input and feedback to the Executive Leadership Team on a variety of cultural topics and help lead our Company-wide effort to execute the approved DEI Action Plan. CEO Ned Rand and CHRO Noreen Dishart serve as the Executive Sponsors for the Council.
The ProAssurance Board of Directors shares our commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion. The ProAssurance Executive Leadership Team reports on the status of our DEI efforts at each quarterly Board meeting.
Diversity, equity, and inclusion are also priorities for many of our investors. We publish regular reports on diversity within our own workforce on the Corporate Responsibility page of our Investor Relations website.
