What our employees say
“The support that I’ve gotten is to actually create marketing materials and a new initiative where we focus on the Hispanic demographic. I’m leading that effort, so it’s wonderful to see a company that embraces and encourages you to actually focus on your own demographic, your own community. I’m 100% Hispanic and I’m Mexican 100%, so I know a thing or two about the community. That initiative and to have MGIC’s support means a lot — it makes me feel welcome.”
– Concepcion Guerrero, Senior Marketing Analyst

Every year, we lend support to and invest in community-based programs and initiatives that emphasize health, social services, civic efforts, education, arts and culture. These are just a few of the many causes and programs we support that help diversify and strengthen our community, as well as our workplace.
