Get Involved

Become a Diversity & Inclusion Partner!

Our Mission

At AALU, diversity and inclusion are at the forefront of life insurance’s changing landscape as our profession becomes more representative of the American people. AALU is committed to helping lead the charge in driving that change, providing our scholarship sponsors and their field forces with the tools and knowledge to grow in diverse marketplaces.

Diversity Scholarships

The life insurance community provides financial security for all different socioeconomic backgrounds, races, ages, sexual orientations, and religions. These varied backgrounds are the fabric of our nation and should be represented on Capitol Hill as we educate key political and regulatory figures on the importance of our profession.

As a third-party organization, AALU provides Diversity Scholarship investors with knowledge aggregated from across the life insurance marketplace on how to build a diverse field force and inclusive culture. Diversity Scholarship investors also receive content and tools that will help their producers grow their businesses, enhance their personal brands, and protect their clients. Perhaps most importantly, diversity scholarships will facilitate a stronger, more engaging voice for the life insurance community at a time when it has never mattered more.

AALU Diversity Scholarship investors allow us to represent a bigger, broader cross-section of people so we can more effectively promote the profession and those who depend on it.

Please let us know if your company would be interested in becoming a diversity scholarship investor.
