First American Financial Corp. recently formed an advisory council to promote the company’s commitment to a diverse, equitable and inclusive work environment.

First American’s Diversity, Equity & Inclusion (DE&I) Advisory Council is comprised of diverse employees and key leaders from across the company.

“Our DE&I efforts are a natural extension of the people-first philosophy that powers our positive, collaborative culture—a core company strength,” said Dennis Gilmore, CEO of First American. “We’re committed to taking meaningful, sustainable action that benefits our people and our communities, reinforcing that First American is a workplace that allows employees to bring their best ideas to work, to confidently contribute, and to support our customers with innovative solutions and exceptional service.”

First American’s DE&I initiatives will focus on the company’s recruitment and retention practices, embedding DE&I throughout the company’s policies, programs and procedures, and integrating DE&I strategy with corporate goals and objectives. The company has committed to further enhancing existing DE&I policies and developing and adopting new policies that help all employees achieve their full potential.

Felecia Buycks, vice president and Arizona state manager for First American’s direct division, chairs the advisory council, which reports directly to Gilmore. 

“First American has a well-earned reputation for providing an inclusive and diverse workplace, so we have a strong foundation from which to build,” Buycks said. “We’re committed to being an industry leader through the integration of DE&I practices throughout our operations and we’re already making progress, establishing DE&I task forces in business units across the First American family of companies.”
