Employee Resource Groups
“A place where I can be me.”
At Symetra, we’re building a place where every employee feels valued, respected, and has opportunities to contribute. One of the ways we’re doing this is through our Employee Resource Groups (ERGs), which are voluntary groups that engage members and allies to foster a diverse, inclusive workplace and a sense of belonging.
We embrace and celebrate diverse experiences, identities and perspectives, because lifting each other up fuels thought and creates a stronger, more innovative company.
Inclusive Diversity Council (IDC)
The IDC is made up of Symetra employees from all locations, functions and levels, with a promise to promote and support an inclusive and respectful workplace where every voice is heard. The IDC’s mission is to foster diversity, equity and inclusion by creating educational opportunities, raising awareness, and providing the necessary tools and resources. It also supports and oversees our Employee Resource Groups.
