Allianz Trade US Diversity Equity Inclusion & Belonging (DEIB) Council

Within Allianz Trade in the United States, we recognize that our country faces unique challenges of diversity, equity, inclusion, and belonging. In response to social justice movements and the clear need for greater transparency and action on the part of corporate citizens, Allianz Trade US formed its Diversity Equity Inclusion and Belonging Council in 2020.

The DEIB Council provides oversight on diversity efforts and promote company-wide communication on progress. The DEIB council is made up of 20+ members who serve to lead, support, educate, and connect as we work toward a more equal future.

DEIB Council leaders act to engage, activate, support, and create a structure to advance diversity, equality, inclusion, and belonging as a core value and critical component of the organization’s culture. The DEIB Council is led by two co-chairs and an executive sponsor.

Council members provide advice, guidance, and support on equality and diversity issues and actively seek out diverse perspectives and opinions.

The Council aims to prepare employees to meet the needs of a globally diverse marketplace by increasing awareness through diverse events and effective communication.  

The Council works to create more ethical partnerships to increase our organizational resilience and reputability and to be more reflective of the communities we serve. 

DEIB Book Club
All employees are encouraged to read, learn, and discuss DEIB Book Club selections throughout the year. Participants enjoy the opportunity to reflect and connect with one another in an open and inclusive virtual environment. A recent selection the book club recommends is How to Be an Inclusive Leader: Your Role in Creating Cultures of Belonging Where Everyone Can Thrive by Jennifer Brown.

Cristo Rey Internship Program
Allianz Trade US enjoys a longstanding partnership with Cristo Rey Jesuit High School in Baltimore, Maryland. Each year since 2015, the company has provided mentorship and hands-on experience to Cristo Rey interns. In recent years, robust support from the DEIB Council has enhanced the program. Students benefit from customized experiences based on their career aspirations as well as a focus on soft skills and real-world readiness.

MoveNow Camp
In 2023, Allianz Trade Americas hosted its first activation of MoveNow Camp as part of the Olympic and Paralympic Movements Partnership. Youth participants from Baltimore non-profit organizations Safe Alternative Foundation for Education (SAFE) and Kennedy Krieger’s Bennett Blazers adaptive sports program joined 27 Allianz Trade employee volunteers for two memorable days. Joined also by Allianz Paralympic Athlete Ambassador Daniel Romanchuk, the camp was inspiring for all.
