Allstate's Supplier Diversity Exchange fosters an opportunity for minority, women, LGBT, and veteran-owned businesses to competitively bid for contracts with Allstate and Allstate's major suppliers. This event also provides small businesses a venue for personal one-on-one time with Allstate staff.
Launched in 2008, the Allstate Supplier Diversity Exchange was created to provide an opportunity for businesses owned by minorities, women, veterans and members of the lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender community to build relationships with Allstate and Allstate's prime suppliers. It offers a forum for guidance as well as insight into the procurement world of large organizations. While attendance at this event does not guarantee business, since its inception more than 100 participants have had the opportunity to compete for Allstate's business, and over half have successfully won contracts.
As an extension of the Exchange, Allstate also hosts quarterly webinars. These learning series are designed to help suppliers increase their knowledge of how to do business with large corporations, specifically Allstate.
Our Supplier Diversity Program Policy is to ensure inclusion of minority, women and veteran-owned businesses in the competitive bidding process at Allstate in support of our commitment to provide quality products and services to our customers while delivering outstanding value to our shareholders.
