Business diversity


Allstate supports inclusion & economic opportunity

Since 2003, Allstate's business diversity program has steadily increased the procurement of goods and services with diverse suppliers. To learn more about Allstate's business diversity efforts and economic impact, please visit

We are committed to continually increasing spending with diverse businesses using the following process:

  1. All potential businesses are strongly encouraged to be registered in the Ariba Discovery Network to be considered for any opportunities with Allstate. All RFx activity takes place through Ariba.
  2. To provide more information about your company or present an innovative idea, please complete the Prospective Supplier Engagement Form.

Prime supplier expectations & reporting

Allstate encourages using diverse businesses for subcontracting and asks suppliers to report their performance on a quarterly basis. If your company has been asked to provide 2nd-Tier reporting, please visit Allstate 2nd Tier Reporting.

Allstate Business Diversity Summit

Each year, Allstate hosts an exchange for diverse businesses. Attendees can pitch their businesses to our decision-makers in charge of sourcing goods and services, attend workshops and network with Allstate leaders.

The Allstate Supplier Diversity Exchange was launched in 2008 to provide an opportunity for diverse businesses to build relationships with Allstate and prime suppliers, while receiving guidance and insight into the sourcing process for large organizations. Many companies from the supplier diversity exchange have earned contracts with Allstate.

In 2022, Allstate rebranded their Supplier Diversity Exchange to the Business Diversity Summit, which brings together subject matter experts in education, leadership, Fortune 500's and advocacy groups to discuss innovative ways to drive economic impact in the community. This event has been noted as a benchmark best practice by our business partners.

Supplier Mentoring Program

We are currently re-evaluating our supplier mentorship program. However, we do partner with our advocacy group partners to participate in their mentorship programs on a case-by-case basis.
