Andrade
Everest President & CEO
We are the proud recipient of the 2022 Diversity and Inclusion Award from Inside P&C Honors, which recognizes our efforts to promote DEI in the industry through our programs, events, initiatives, policies, and other activities. This is a testament to our significant strides in the DEI space, including the establishment of our DEI Council, several new Employee Resource Groups (ERGs) and external work to help bring equity and economic growth to the communities we serve.
The following 4 pillars are the operational framework for our DEI strategy and execution efforts:
Alignment & Accountability
Our integrated global DEI efforts align with our cultural tenets and are metrics-based, to hold us accountable for progress.
Our colleagues will always be the focus of the global programs, processes and partnerships we create, and we will reflect their diverse experiences and perspectives.
Culture & Engagement
Our workplace culture thrives because of our efforts to enhance engagement, inclusion, allyship and belonging.
Opportunity & Growth
Our global efforts to underwrite opportunity are focused on colleagues' ongoing growth, and we will be agile as we hone our offerings to meet their diverse needs.
Our DEI Council
Our DEI Council’s mission is to help foster an environment that attracts, retains and develops the best talent; values the diversity of people, their life experiences and perspectives; and serves as a conduit to Senior Management to promote measurable company-wide engagement on equity and cultural inclusivity. The DEI Council is an important voice and key counselor and supports our leaders in their role to further cultivate DEI at Everest through open dialogue and discussion, training, and best practices.
Our sponsorships and partnerships
Everest is proud of our strides to enhance recruiting and expand diversity at all levels of our business. By partnering with organizations such as NAAIA, NAWA and Dive In, we’re able to attract and retain talent from all walks of life.
Our Employee Resource Groups
We continuously seize opportunities to celebrate our diversity and lift one another up. Our global ERGs, as part of our DEI Council, connect regularly through networking events, professional development opportunities and sharing cultural traditions, driving greater awareness and collaboration across offices worldwide.
Our Global ERGs
- Black Employee Resource Group
- Latin Employee Resource Group
- Pan-Asian Employee Resource Group
- PRIDE Employee Resource Group
- Rising Professionals Employee Resource Group
- Women's Networking Group
- Working Parents and Caregivers Employee Resource Group
Everest’s DEI Council collaborates with our ERGs on a wide variety of initiatives to help foster a deeper understanding of diverse perspectives, cultures, and life experiences, and enhance learning and connection among colleagues.
Our Women’s Networking Group held a Leadership Coffee Hour & Book Signing featuring Eileen Collins, one of the most celebrated astronauts in history and the first woman to command an American space mission and pilot a space shuttle.
We recognized Veteran’s Day and National Remembrance Day by honoring those who selflessly served their country and sharing stories and photos of our Everest Veterans.
Training and Development
The continued development of all colleagues is core to who we are and how we maintain our competitive advantage as a global leader. Our leaders and colleagues engage in ongoing learning around inclusion that supports both professional and personal development. We are proud to offer corporate mentoring programs, leadership development opportunities, and avenues for engagement with our external partner organizations.
