Our Commitment To Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion

We need the best associates to help us be innovative, creative, and financially successful – and that means drawing from a range of people with diverse backgrounds, experiences, characteristics, and skills.

Our health, productivity, and success as an organization relies on having a diverse workforce. And to thrive, that workforce needs an open environment in which all associates are included, represented fairly, and have their voices heard.

We’re Better Together

We believe in the power of unity, and that doesn’t happen without effort. Without celebrating diversity. Without ensuring equity. Without promoting inclusivity.

That’s why we formed Better Together, our Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Council, to provide opportunities for all associates and help them develop cultural competencies in all areas of business and personal interactions.

Strength Through Associate Resource Groups

Our associates began forming Associate Resource Groups as a means for discussion, ideas, thoughts, and feedback to help us build a better workplace for everyone.

So far, we’ve formed eight groups and each of them is open to any associate who wishes to join. Each group decides on their unique purpose, vision, and mission – and sets up activities to support them.

Serving the Communities in Which We Live and Work

Nelnet was founded with one purpose: to serve. While our associates are different in many ways, they share a commitment to serving our customers, our partners, each other – and our communities. Nelnet provides community involvement opportunities for associates, and offers monthly paid time off to serving our communities.
