First American Financial Corporation (NYSE: FAF), a leading global provider of title insurance, settlement services and risk solutions for real estate transactions, announced today that for the third year in a row the company earned a 100 percent rating on the 2020 Corporate Equality Index (CEI), the Human Rights Campaign (HRC) Foundation’s national benchmarking tool on corporate policies and practices pertinent to lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer (LGBTQ) employees. First American joins the ranks of 686 U.S. companies that earned perfect scores this year and were designated a “Best Place to Work for LGBTQ Workplace equality.”

“Our people demonstrate their ongoing commitment to maintaining an inclusive workplace every day through their interactions with and treatment of others,” said Dennis Gilmore, CEO, First American Financial Corporation. “Our positive, collaborative culture is a core company strength, fostering engaged employees and engaged employees serve our customers well. This combination, along with the efficient operation of our business, ultimately benefits shareholders, as well.”
