San Mateo, Calif., July 12, 2023 — Achieve, the leader in digital personal finance, received the Tempe Chamber of Commerce’s inaugural Diversity Impact Award. The award celebrates “exemplary leadership in advancing diversity, equity and inclusion within the company with clear, positive impacts in areas as a result of these efforts,” and was presented on June 30 at the Tempe Chamber’s 2023 Diversity in Leadership Conference. Other finalists for the award included Deloitte, Farmers Insurance and Kubra.

Achieve has made a significant commitment to create a diverse workforce where all teammates are seen, heard and empowered. ‌Its six employee resource groups (ERG) support Achieve teammates from the African American/Black; Military Veterans; LGBTQ+; Hispanic/Latinx; Asian American/Pacific Islander; and Women’s Leadership communities. More than half of Achieve teammates participate in ERG activities. In addition, Achieve has expanded the focus on diversity and inclusion to recruitment and retention efforts by:

Ensuring a diverse panel of candidates is brought for open positions

Expanding recruiting to new communities through hybrid and fully remote employment options

Collaborate with recruiting vendor partners with stronger diversity reach

Providing career growth and development opportunities through a defined pathing process for diverse talent

“Achieve was built to help people from all walks of life get a better handle on their finances and stay on a path to a better financial future,” said Achieve Executive Vice President for Human Resources Linda Luman. “It’s important that, as a company, we resemble the diverse customers we serve. We invest significant thought, time and resources into building a diverse workforce where everyone feels a sense of belonging. We’re grateful that the Tempe Chamber of Commerce recognized our efforts.”
