IRVINE, CA — Alliant Insurance Services has been recognized with the 5 Star Diversity, Equity & Inclusion (DE&I) Award from Insurance Business America. The awards recognize firms that have continued to advance DE&I in the workplace. This is the second consecutive year that Alliant has earned the award.
“This honor further solidifies Alliant’s ongoing commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion,” said Tom Corbett, Chairman and CEO of Alliant. “Alliant is driven to cultivate a diverse and inclusive workforce and to ensure that everyone has the opportunity for success within our organization. We believe that diversity is a source of strength and innovation, and we’ll continue to champion these principles in everything that we do.”
Insurance Business America’s 5-Star DE&I Awards launched in 2022 to recognize and celebrate companies in the insurance industry that have created the effective DE&I programs needed to foster positive change and promote a culture where everyone feels valued and supported.
“The 5-Star DE&I Award represents a significant endorsement of our practices and a recognition of the environment and culture we’ve fostered at Alliant,” said Lilian Vanvieldt, Executive Vice President and Chief Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Officer with Alliant. “We’re dedicated to advancing DE&I within the insurance sector and understanding the significant challenges that need to be overcome.”
Alliant’s DE&I team engages in a growing number of initiatives and strategic partnerships focused on furthering development opportunities for underrepresented professionals. This encompasses collaborative efforts with like-minded organizations, the growth of two innovative programs designed to broaden the access for underrepresented college students to the insurance industry, bolstering internal Employee Resource Groups, and proactively working to provide career growth and advancement opportunities for all workplace professionals.
To determine the insurance companies with the most effective DE&I programs, the Insurance Business America research team first invited firms to share the DE&I initiatives they had focused on over the prior 12 months. During a 15-week process, the team conducted one-on-one interviews with DE&I professionals to gain a keen understanding of the industry standards for DE&I and determine which companies had met or exceeded those expectations. After receiving nominations for DE&I initiatives, the team contacted the companies’ employees to gauge the effectiveness of these programs. The companies that scored 4.0 or higher on a scale of 1 to 5 were recognized for having 5-Star DE&I programs.
