alliantgroup Black Collaborative
In May of 2020, several Black alliantgroup leaders were moved to take action as a result of the growing racial injustice movement. Kim Allen and Missy Waites reached out to alliantgroup CEO, Dhaval Jadav to create a platform for alliantgroup Black professionals to openly discuss issues surrounding race, equity and community.
Weeks later, more professionals from varied departments across the firm joined forces to make this vision a reality and formed the alliantgroup Black Collaborative (aBC). The alliantgroup Black Collaborative members are working with each other and their colleagues throughout the organization to promote Black Excellence through engaging Black youth in our Houston-area community, empowering Black alliantgroup professionals to reach their leadership goals, and expanding alliantgroup’s search for talented professionals to include dedicated recruiting efforts at Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs).
