WHY IT’S ON THE LIST
Allstate Insurance Company moves up four spots as it continues to demonstrate a commitment to inclusive diversity through employee- resource groups and community philanthropy.
Allstate Chairman, President and CEO Tom Wilson sponsors an Executive Diversity Leadership Council, which consists of senior-level decision-makers. He is a visible proponent of diversity’s link to business goals. Both Wilson and his direct reports are involved with several multicultural nonprofits.
The company has nine employee resource groups: Allstate Women’s Information Network; Professional Latino Allstate Network; Allstate Asian American Network; Allstate Network of Gay and Lesbian Employees and Supporters; African American Working Network; Young Professionals Organization; Parents Working Together; Allstate Adoption Network; and Allstate Veterans Engagement Team and Supporters.
The groups are used for recruitment, on-boarding, mentoring, talent development and diversity training. They also are used as focus groups and business resources.
Allstate, and the Allstate Foundation, has a long history of community philanthropy, including the company’s Quotes for Education program, a collaboration with the Tom Joyner Foundation, dedicated to empowering the Black community.
