As a major employer in this region, we have the resources to positively impact diversity attitudes, behaviors and outcomes in the communities we serve – a responsibility we take seriously.

Alliant Energy helped form Diversity Focus. This organization works with businesses, government, education, individuals and groups who embrace diversity to improve the welcoming nature of the Cedar Rapids and Iowa City corridor.

We are an active supporter and member of the Madison Area Diversity Roundtable. The Roundtable’s purpose is to improve diversity and inclusionary practices in Madison as well as outreach efforts in greater Madison.
