We want everyone to feel comfortable being themselves at work. We want everyone to feel valued, respected, and have a real opportunity to excel within the company. That’s why we have “commUnity,” our award-winning diversity and inclusion program.
We understand that it’s our differences that make us strong. Our team comes from all walks of life. And while our cultures are different, religions are different, genders are different, sexual identities are different, and so much more – we work together to reach the same goal, to help our customers unlock the possibilities of their technology. Our differences allow us to innovate quickly and problem solve, but most importantly they allow us to deliver on what our customers really want because we understand who they are.
What is CommUnity?
Our Employee Resource Groups (ERGs) are at the heart of commUnity. ERGs unify our team members with common interests for networking, mentorship, problem solving, and volunteerism. They help all of us better understand and appreciate team members who have different styles, perspectives, and ideas than our own.
We have a growing number of active ERGs at Asurion:

In 2017, our Diversity & Inclusion team started the #BeBold Breakfast series. They take “hot topics” relating to inclusion that you normally wouldn’t talk about at work, and start a conversation. The goal is to drive awareness of broader perspectives and experiences. And it’s been successful!
The first #BeBold Breakfast was around the #MeToo movement and gender equality in the workplace. Those who attended, both men and women, said they felt more knowledgeable and comfortable discussing the topic because of the event. Since then, they’ve held conversations around racial equality, religious equality, the ABC’s of LGBTQIA+ and more.
Every single one of our team members is unique. You don’t check who you are when you walk in to work, you bring that with you. Whether you’re an immigrant, LGBTQ, a racial minority or a parent, we want you to feel like you can bring your best self to work.
Through our ERGs and events like our #BeBold Breakfasts we are creating safe spaces for all of our team members to share their perspectives and learn from each others’ experiences.
