C&F’s vision is to create a culture of community, fairness and dedication to those we serve, including our employees, clients, brokers, producers, charitable organizations and local communities where we live and work.
Firmly embedded in our DNA, we strive to provide sound counsel and guidance – along with superior products and solutions – which enable our clients to make prudent risk management decisions that are aligned with their goals. Driven by our leadership team, our culture is steeped in always acting in the best interests of all our stakeholders and, importantly, our communities – creating a lasting legacy for our company.
C&F is unwavering in our commitment to supporting the communities where our employees live and work. Importantly, we believe in “doing well by doing good.”
Through our many corporate and employee-led charitable giving; volunteer efforts; commitment to diversity, equity and inclusion, and employee wellness initiatives, we seek to drive positive change among the many diverse groups we serve, the details of which can be found in C&F’s CSR Annual Report.
Diversity, Equity and Inclusion is a central part of our culture and how we work at C&F. We firmly believe that differences in age, race, gender, nationality, sexual orientation, physical ability, thinking style and background bring richness to C&F and enhance our ability to provide best-in-class service to our increasingly diverse base of clients, brokers and producers.
Our diversity, equity and inclusion strategy comprises engagement from both leadership and employees – all working collaboratively to increase representation. This includes a coordinated approach of allyship and inclusion, along with a sustained and enterprise-wide commitment to business practices that encourage and enable employees to achieve their full potential.
Through our seven active and engaged Employee Resource Groups (ERG) and an executive-led Inclusivity Council, C&F values the diverse voices of all our people. It is our mission to attract, retain and support diverse talent that is representative of different life experiences and educational levels, genders, races, sexual orientations, cultural backgrounds, religions, differing abilities and age groups.
Our ERGs are also active in their support of external diversity-focused associations. Notably, through our Advocates for Black Equity (ABES) ERG, C&F is a Gold Sponsor of the National African Insurance Association, while our Women Amplifying Value & Equity (WAVE) ERG is a sponsor of the Association of Professional Insurance Women.
