First American Earns 100 Percent on Human Rights Campaign Foundation’s 2018 Corporate Equality Index

—Company earns perfect score in annual scorecard on LGBTQ
workplace equality—

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 perfect score of 100 percent on the 2018 Corporate
Equality Index (CEI), a national benchmarking survey and report on
corporate policies and practices related to lesbian, gay, bisexual,
transgender and queer (LGBTQ) workplace equality, administered by the
Human Rights Campaign Foundation. First American joins the ranks of 609
businesses which also earned perfect scores this year.

“Our people are the stewards of our culture and I’m continually
impressed by their efforts to maintain an inclusive workplace,” said
Dennis Gilmore, CEO, First American Financial Corporation. “We’ve found
that a positive, inclusive culture fosters engaged employees and that
engaged employees serve our customers well. That combination, along with
the efficient operation of our business, ultimately
benefits shareholders as well.”

The 2018 CEI evaluated 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. First American met all of
the CEI’s criteria, resulting in a perfect score and the designation as
a Best Place to Work for LGBTQ Equality.

Earlier in 2017, Fortune® magazine and Great Place to Work®
recognized First American as one of the 100
best companies to work for in America
and one of the 2017
Best Workplaces for Women
for the second consecutive year, as well
as one of the 40
Best Workplaces in Financial Services
and one of the 2017
Best Workplaces in Southern California

First American has earned recognition as a “best place to work” 54 times
in publications across the United States since 2012. Internationally,
the company’s Canadian subsidiary, FCT, was named by Great Place to Work®
as one of that country’s Top 50 Best Workplaces for three consecutive
years (2015, 2016 and 2017).
