MADISON, Wis. – August 29, 2018 – The Alliant Energy Board of Directors is one of twenty-five boards spanning a cross section of company sizes and industries that have been nominated as finalists for National Association of Corporate Directors (NACD) NXT recognition.

This recognition, part of the NACD NXT initiative, applauds exemplary board leadership practices that promote greater diversity and inclusion, ultimately fostering long-term value creation.

“Alliant Energy and its Board of Directors are delighted to be nominated for recognition by the National Association of Corporate Directors,” said Patricia Kampling, Chairman and CEO of Alliant Energy. “We believe that the value of a diverse and inclusive board is beyond measure – good solutions become great solutions when broader perspectives reflect the interests of our customers and our investors.”

Alliant Energy’s nominating and governance committee works to balance its board with members having a variety of backgrounds, including diversity across age, gender, ethnicity, skill set and experience in a wide range of industries and specialties. 

Nominations for NACD NXT recognition will be evaluated by an independent selection committee composed of leading corporate directors and executives. The winner in each category (small-cap, mid-cap, large-cap, and private companies) will be publicly announced at the NACD NXT Recognition Gala on Saturday, September 29 in Washington, DC during NACD’s annual Global Board Leaders’ Summit.
