Inspiring Civic Leadership
Travelers’ future depends on a strong, stable, representative democracy, with predictable and fair outcomes governed by the rule of law. It drives confidence in the market, lays the foundation for companies to grow and enables people from all walks of life to invest with confidence in their own lives and livelihoods. That is why we seek to encourage engagement with the essential democratic institutions that make up the public square. Citizen Travelers is about empowering each person to take up the democratic tools that are afforded to them as citizens, to step up as leaders in our communities and to engage in ways that are constructive and neighborly.

Bridging the Civics Gap: Making the Business Case for Civic Engagement
September 7, 2022
As a result of shifting societal trends in recent years, civic education and engagement has been on the decline. What can be done to turn things around? iCivics Executive Director Louise Dubé and Travelers Group General Counsel and Head of Civic Engagement Janice Brunner discussed how businesses – both large and small – can empower employees and their families with the tools they need to get civically engaged in their communities.
Leaders Can Model the Way
Civic leadership doesn’t just build stronger communities, it builds stronger companies. Every employee who gets involved is developing skills they can bring to their career: Leadership. Collaboration. Innovation. Decision-making. Problem-solving. They are also meeting people in their communities with diverse perspectives, experiences and identities, and working together as teams to solve shared problems and find common ground. No matter what form their civic leadership and engagement takes, Travelers is committed to providing employees with the resources and support they need to carry out this important work.
