At Esurance, “diversity and inclusion” is more than just a concept. It’s part of who we are and where we’ve come from. But most important, it’s part of what we do.
Over the years, we’ve supported organizations like GLAAD, PFLAG, and The Trevor Project, and we were one of the first car insurance companies to extend the married rate to LGBT customers.
Today, to help spread the word about our commitment to equality, we’re excited to debut our #EqualDreams video.
In the modern world, all dreams are equal
Everyone should be able to dream of their perfect wedding day, regardless of who they love.
In our short film, we talk to kids about their (truly spectacular) wedding dreams. When you’re a kid, the sky’s the limit. Giant donuts? Of course. Volcanoes? No problem. Dolphins? Why not!
But for gay teens, the idea of getting married often seems far-fetched or out of the picture. In the video, we also talk to a few of these teens who reveal the difficulties of inequality.
As a modern-world company, at Esurance we think all dreams should be equal. And that’s why we recognize all marriages.
The married rate from Esurance
So what does it mean to recognize all marriages? It simply means that in order to treat all customers equally, we go beyond what the law requires when we’re able.
In every state where Esurance can give couples a married rate, we extend that rate to either married gay couples, domestic partners, or those in civil unions — even in states that do not allow same-sex marriages.
There are a few states that don’t allow insurance companies to provide rates based on marital status, period. So, of course, in those states we’re not able to extend the married rate to any of our customers.
But wherever we can, we extend this rate equally. Learn more about the married rate.
Esurance and equality
June is National LGBT Pride Month and we’re excited to take part with the debut of #EqualDreams. But our commitment to equality extends much further than this. It is — and always has been — the very core of what we do.
