Diversity and inclusion in the workplace

Inclusion is not just something that happens. It’s a way of thinking and doing that fosters respect, acceptance and growth. We know that the best ideas stem from conversations where all voices feel heard, represented and valued. In addition to diversifying our business and supplier partners outside of Alliant, here are a few of the ways we are working to ensure an equitable environment for our team.

Employee Resource Groups

Our new and rapidly-growing ERGs, ALL (LGBTQIA+ group), EMPOWER (Black Professionals Network) and INCLUDE (women's group), meet regularly to problem-solve, network, and brainstorm ways to influence and impact the way we do work.

Parental leave

Natural, adoptive, and foster parents are given up to six consecutive weeks of paid leave to settle into their new role of caring for a little one.

Competitive benefits

We offer excellent, well-rounded benefits and resources that protect our employees and their families. Our offerings have recently expanded to further prioritize mental health and wellness.

WFH flexibility

In 2020, our digital-first model helped us discover how flexible our team truly was. Within one week, we had 95% of our team set up to work remotely so they could safely continue to serve our members.

Accessibility

Our initiatives not only focus on making accommodations for our own team, but to optimize digital content accessibility for our members and future savers alike!

Equal pay

Alliant employees can trust that their time and talents are receiving fair and equitable compensation thanks to practices like published pay rates and regular market adjustments.

It's so empowering to work for a company that is eager to make strides toward eliminating gender and racial inequities. I feel confident coming to the table with ideas, and I know that my thoughts will always be valued and respected. It's truly life-changing to be a part of a culture like this.

Sustainable DEI action in our communities

We are eager to serve the people of our communities through educational, material, and financial support. Our employees are allotted 8 hours of paid time off for volunteer work each year, and are encouraged to give to non-profit organizations with an annual donation match from the Alliant Credit Union Foundation.

Continuously supported initiatives

Alliant Member Scholarship Drawing

We proudly support continued education of students of all ages by offering six $2,500 scholarships annually to help our members cover the costs of college.

Foster Care to Success

Applicants are eligible to qualify for Alliant membership by becoming a member of Foster Care to Success , which serves foster teens pursuing higher education across the U.S. (Alliant even pays the $5 membership fee on members’ behalf!)

Operation HOPE

We’re proud to participate in Banking On Our Future, a program designed to offer communities and schools free financial literacy courses. Alliant employees serve as volunteer teachers to educate 8th grade classes near our Chicago headquarters using materials from the program's set course modules.
