      Our DE&I Efforts

      Diversity & inclusion has always been a guiding principle at our company. Here are just a few of the ways we’re currently committed to diversity in employment:

      • Proud supporter of the United Negro College Fund (UNCF) for over 25 years
      • Partner with INROADS, the largest non-profit provider of paid internships in America, for over 20 years resulting in more than 170 job offers
      • Attended diverse career fairs and conferences such as Prospanica, National Black MBA Association, National Urban League and Alpha Kappa Alpha (AKA) Sorority’s Career Fair
      • Hosted diversity training entitled “Expanding our Picture of Diversity at ALDI” for District Managers attending the annual ALDI seminar
      • Established partnerships with diversity recruiters

      We all have a responsibility to look in the mirror and do more to be inclusive and promote racial equality. We are committing to change. We are developing ways to facilitate trainings on the importance of diversity at ALDI, ensuring our offices, warehouses and stores are inclusive and respectful to all. As part of these efforts, we are enhancing recruitment and development for minority employees. We will continue supporting communities of color across the country and are exploring other ways to make an additional impact.

      Monthly DE&I Spotlight

      November is a celebration of National Native American Heritage Month. It’s a time to recognize the Native American experience: the history, culture and contributions to society. Native Americans are also known as American Indians, First Americans and Indigenous Americans. They are the Indigenous peoples of our country.

      Today, there are over 570 Native American tribes and nations across the United States! These federally recognized sovereign nations each have their own distinct cultural traditions, governments, languages and practices.

      Here are some of the ways you can celebrate Native American culture:

      • Watch “Reservation Dogs." This Indigenous American teen comedy-drama television series was created by Sterlin Harjo and Taika Waititi. The show features all Indigenous writers and directors. It is also almost entirely comprised of an Indigenous North American cast and production team, making it an important first. The series is the first to be filmed completely in Oklahoma, which has the third largest Native American population in the U.S.
      • Visit a museum to learn more about this rich culture.
      • Shop Native American-owned businesses!
      • Donate to the American Indian College Fund: a nonprofit organization that supports American Indian and Alaska Native students’ access to higher education through scholarships and programming.
