First American Earns 90 out of 100 on Human Rights Campaign Foundation’s 2017 Corporate Equality Index

—Company participates in the annual scorecard on LGBTQ workplace
equality for the first time—

American Financial Corporation
a leading global provider of title insurance, settlement services and
risk solutions for real estate transactions, announced today that the
company earned a score of 90 out of 100 on the 2017 Corporate Equality
Index (CEI), a national benchmarking survey and report on corporate
policies and practices relating to LGBTQ workplace equality,
administered by the Human Rights Campaign Foundation (HRC). First
American participated in the CEI survey for the first time and the
company’s score reflects a commitment to LGBTQ workplace equality, with
respect to tangible policies, benefits, and practices.

“Participation in the Corporate Equality Index was a natural extension
of our determination to maintain an inclusive workplace culture based on
integrity, commitment and teamwork,” said Dennis Gilmore, CEO, First
American Financial Corporation. “That takes a consistent focus on
improvement and the support of our people. The end result is positive
for our employees, our customers and our company’s performance.”

The 2017 CEI rated a total of 1,043 businesses in the report, which
evaluates LGBTQ-related policies and practices, including
non-discrimination workplace protections, domestic partner benefits,
transgender-inclusive health care benefits, competency programs, and
public engagement with the LGBTQ community.

“Through 15 editions of the annual Corporate Equality Index, major
private sector employers have demonstrated over and over that inclusion
is not just the right thing to do, it makes for a stronger, more
successful business,” said Deena Fidas, director of HRC’s Workplace
Equality Program. “From centuries-old companies to those that have
existed for just a few years, major employers have adopted
LGBT-inclusive policies and benefits at rates that continue to outpace
lawmakers and lead the way forward.”
