Commitment to Diversity and Inclusion
At First American, we are committed to creating and promoting a diverse and inclusive work environment. Our goal is to recruit, develop, promote and retain outstanding talent from a wide range of backgrounds, perspectives and skill sets. This diversity within our First American family not only allows us to better understand and meet the needs of our customers and communities, but also helps us increase our operational flexibility, expand into new markets, and develop innovative products.
We know that fostering a diverse and inclusive work place where employees feel there are no artificial barriers to the use of their talent and productivity is essential to our Company's continued success. This is why we strive to create a culture of inclusiveness in which every individual's contributions are valued and respected, and where diversity of thought is not only accepted, but celebrated.
