Our Commitment

At Alight, we believe that diversity should be visible, valued, and sustained throughout the organiztion.  We are committed to enabling an inclusive culture of belonging that engages all colleagues and grows the diversity of our talent to proudly represent the clients and communities we serve.


That is why we start with inclusion. For us, inclusion is a verb. It is the act of creating an environment where colleagues can bring their whole selves to work, reach their full potential, and feel that they belong. When we act inclusively and colleagues feel they belong, that action is reflected in our diversity. Diversity for us is measurable, both visible and non-visible, and balanced. This balance is reflected in:
​​​​​​​

  • Culture - creating a sense of belonging in the workplace
  • Colleague Careers - improving the acquisition, development and retentuion of diverse talent
  • commUNITY - affirming our diversity inside and out
  • Marketplace & Commerce - diversifying our portfolio and infusing Alight culture in our client experiences
Our Strategy

Our strategy fulfills our promise by bringing action to words.  Our Global Inclusion and Diversity office is an integral part of driving the I&D strategy forward.  The office provides direct oversight to the company’s colleague communities, councils and networks.
