Diversity, Equity, & Inclusion

We are committed to honoring, understanding, and growing the ALKrew in order to foster a culture where we seek to understand and celebrate each person who walks through our doors.

Where We Stand

The space we strive to uphold at ALKU is one of acceptance; a space where we celebrate our differences, advocate for one another and embrace our individuality because it’s only ALKU with the ALKrew. ALKU is committed to creating a safe space so that we are not only the best businesspeople we can be but the best humans we can be. We strive to make a positive impact at work, so we can make the world a better place. Within these four walls, we work together every day for complete and total equity.

Employee Resource Groups

Our ERGs are created and run by our very own ALKU employees to support each and every employees’ needs.

AWE

ALKU Women Empowered. A women’s group determined to provide resources to the women of ALKU and give them the support they need to continue to develop within the organization.

Parents Group

For ALKU parents, expecting parents, or people who want to know what it’s like to be an ALKU parent.

Pride Group

For ALKU’s LGBTQIA2S+ employees to share experiences, provide fellowship and support, enhance career and personal development, and contribute to ALKU’s vision and values. This group is a safe space to meet and discuss life both inside and outside of ALKU.

State of Mind

To open the conversation around mental health and wellness in hopes of fostering supportive connection and eliminating any potential stigma in the workplace.

Unity

For employees of color at ALKU to share experiences, provide fellowship and support, enhance career and personal development, and contribute to ALKU’s vision and values. We feel it is important for the underrepresented population at ALKU to have a safe space to meet and discuss life both outside and inside ALKU.

Jewish Employee Group (JEG)

For Jewish employees at ALKU to feel welcome and know that anyone regardless of what their background is, is part of the ALKU community. Our primary objectives are to create a safe space to talk about life as a Jew in the world today, as well as share our culture and food with other employees that are interested in what it means to be Jewish.

RISE

To open conversation around disabilities and better educate those with disabilities on daily living skills, treatment options, pain management, and overall health and wellness. The goal is for ALKU employees to discover different ways to rise above the stigma and continue to learn different ways of recovery, management, and overall wellbeing while living with a disability.

ALKU Veterans

The purpose of the ALKU Veterans ERG is to offer a sense of community between veterans and their non-veteran peers, and to help spread awareness of the problems that veterans face daily.
