Gore Mutual is insurance that does good. That is their purpose.

"Gore Mutual is proud to partner with Rumie to help bridge that learning gap for over 100,000 Canadian youth and underserved community members. Supporting access to education, regardless of circumstances, ensures we are investing in the next generation of Canadian leaders, entrepreneurs and social innovators." Gaby Polanco-Sorto, Senior Vice-President, Purpose and Sustainability, Gore Mutual.

Rumie is an ed-tech charity whose mission is to bridge the global learning gap with equitable, accessible micro-lessons to youth and underserved communities. Rumie exists to create opportunities for a better life by providing accessible, innovative, and authentic learning for anyone, anywhere, to fill the gap between school and the real world. Rumie's focus includes practical skills such as career and job-hunting strategies, personal finance, and digital literacy.

Rumie is different from any other charity:

  • Optimized for mobile: youth and underserved communities use their mobile phone as their commuter of choice.
  • Microlearning: a pedagogical approach based on learning in short, under 10-minute snippets, which is heavily preferred by digital learners and drives an over 20% increase in learner retention.
  • High Engagement: Rumie is built to work in concert with social media. Rumie integrates gifs, memes, and quizzes that engage online learners in ways that more formal resources may not.

Gore Mutual is grounded in its purpose and guided by its core values. At Gore Mutual, they believe that being good and doing good by their employees, customers and broker partners will benefit both their stakeholders and them—which in turn, allows them to spread good in Canadian communities and reward the good Gore Mutual sees in others. This is driving Gore Mutual's work to become a purpose-driven, digitally-led national insurer.
