Insurance Diversity Initiative (IDI)
The Insurance Diversity Initiative works to advance supplier and governing board diversity within California’s $371 billion insurance industry.
The nationally-recognized Insurance Diversity Initiative (IDI or Initiative) was established in 2011 to focus on diversity issues within California’s $371 billion insurance industry (the third largest insurance industry in the world.) Specifically, these efforts by Department staff and the Commissioner-appointed Insurance Diversity Task Force are meant to encourage increased procurement from diverse suppliers and enhanced diversity among insurer governing boards. The Initiative accomplishes these goals by conducting surveys to collect and publicly disseminate information about the diversity efforts of insurers, as well as spearheading public policy, outreach, partnerships, and Department-hosted events.
