CATIC Releases First Inclusion Report

October 25, 2022

The CATIC Family of Companies recently released results of its first Inclusion Report, which outlines how the company initiated its diversity, equity, and inclusion (DE&I) journey across the organization in 2020 and the initial impact it has had on the company's overall workplace culture since its inception.

"I am proud of how far CATIC has come in creating a 'people first culture' where all voices are heard and embraced,” said James Czapiga, CATIC’s president and CEO. “We continue to focus on cultivating a meaningful and sustainable workplace culture where diverse perspectives and fair treatment are embraced by all employees."

The report outlines various strategic initiatives that have been implemented as part of the CATIC’s corporate social justice reform strategy. For instance, the company implemented an employee-led project team called "The Initiative," which is currently focused on improving homeownership rates for people of color.

Additionally, several employees identified a significant gap with respect to the overall experience of women of color in the workplace and the company has decided to launch a new affinity group for women of color working in the Title industry. Furthermore, the report highlighted how CATIC employees have demonstrated their personal commitment to building a workplace culture that cultivates a genuine sense of community and belonging in various ways.

CATIC’s senior leadership team believes that by thoughtfully employing a deliberate strategic effort over time, the CATIC will be able to successfully advance DE&I across the organization, while continuing to make a real difference in the community every day. Moreover, CATIC hopes the report inspires others across the title industry to start their own DE&I journey or encourage those already doing their part to champion fair and equitable treatment for all underrepresented groups.

"From a leadership perspective, we continue to actively integrate inclusive workplace practices into the foundation of our culture,” said Damon Carter, senior vice president and chief human resources officer at CATIC. “We've learned that in order to significantly move the needle in this regard, we must create a variety of engaging workplace initiatives that will inspire our employees to get involved in supporting our strategic efforts, and it's great to see many of our employees answering the call. Additionally, we quickly realized the value of building strategic partnerships with various organizations in our community with similar interests, which has created amazing opportunities for advocacy and learning along this intentional journey."
