Supplier Diversity & Sustainability

Allstate Supports Equal Opportunity.

Established in 2003, the supplier diversity program has steadily increased the procurement of goods and services with diverse suppliers. In 2016, Allstate spent more than $448 million with these diverse businesses. Allstate is committed to increasing its spend with diverse suppliers and encourages prospective diverse suppliers to create a supplier profile in My Supplier Network.

Supplier Mentoring Program

The Allstate Supplier Mentoring Program is designed to help diverse business owners strengthen their companies. The 12-month program involves a series of live sessions and webinars focused on leadership and employee development, financial management, sales and marketing, and technology improvement sessions. While there is no cost to participate in the program itself, participants are responsible for their own travel arrangements to Northbrook, Illinois when necessary.

The 2016/2017 program was launched in Q2 2016. If you wish to be notified when the 2017/18 program begins, please send an e-mail to AllstateMentoringProgram@Allstate.com. Please contact Rose Hallenberg with any questions.

Allstate Supplier Diversity Exchange

Each year, Allstate Insurance Company hosts an annual exchange for diverse suppliers. Attendees have the opportunity to pitch their businesses to a panel of Allstate decision makers in charge of sourcing goods and services, as well as attend panel sessions with influential Allstate leaders.

The Allstate supplier diversity exchange was launched in 2008 to provide an opportunity for minority-, woman-, veteran-, LGBT-, and disability-owned businesses to build relationships with Allstate and prime suppliers. This forum offers guidance and insight into the sourcing process for large organizations. While attendance at this event does not guarantee business, 135 participating companies have had the opportunity to compete for Allstate's business, with more than 80 successfully winning contracts.

Dates for the 2017 Supplier Diversity Exchange have not been selected. For more information, send inquires to… more information, send inquiries to SDexchange@allstate.com.
