About the Insurance Diversity Initiative of the California Department of Insurance

The Insurance Diversity Initiative (IDI or Initiative) was established in 2011 to focus on diversity issues within California’s $340 billion insurance industry. Specifically, these efforts by Department staff and the Commissioner-appointed Insurance Diversity Task Force aim to advance greater board diversity and increase procurement from businesses owned by women, LGBTQ+ people, veterans, disabled veterans and historically underrepresented communities. The Initiative accomplishes these goals by conducting surveys to collect and publicly disseminate information about the diversity efforts of insurers, as well as through public policy, outreach, partnerships, and Department-hosted events. In 2020, with the creation of the first ever Special (EX) Committee on Race & Insurance among the National Association of Insurance Commissioners (NAIC), the Initiative became regarded as a national model program.
