In October 2005, Chicago Magazine named Allstate one of the five top places to work in Chicago, and DiversityInc. named it a “Top 10” company for overall diversity.

Allstate Insurance Company has also made a major commitment to empower victims of domestic violence. Recognizing that there is a significant gap in resources for programs designed to assist survivors with the multi-faceted economic challenges that they face, The Allstate Foundation launched SAFE HANDS: The Allstate Network for Empowering Women — to provide support to victims of domestic violence. Through SAFE HANDS, The Allstate Foundation is committed to targeting long-term resources to ending domestic violence. The Allstate Foundation Domestic Violence Program will provide a comprehensive network of services for domestic violence survivors and advocates, including:
- Direct services: Providing programming and funding support through a financial empowerment curriculum and training materials; community volunteerism by Allstate employees, agents and agency staff; and a grant program to allow service providers to address the complex, broad and often immediate range of survivors’ needs.
- Thought leadership: Supporting domestic violence advocates and service providers through national conferences and other events and cutting-edge research. The Allstate Foundation Domestic Violence Program will conduct an annual, national research poll to determine current awareness and perceptions about domestic violence in the United States. The findings of this poll, conducted among a representative sample of adults in the U.S., will be used to continue to build the program and track progress over the coming years.
- Public awareness: Creating a national effort to raise public awareness and change societal attitudes about domestic violence. This component of the Program will be phased in beginning in 2006.
The Allstate Foundation is working with the National Network to End Domestic Violence (NNEDV) Fund to develop and implement its new initiative. NNEDV and its membership of domestic violence coalitions will assist The Allstate Foundation in effecting social change, while providing valuable grassroots support to local service providers. A national Advisory Board provides The Allstate Foundation with strategic oversight and guidance on the Domestic Violence Program.
