A culture of belonging

Some argue that culture is convoluted, unmanageable, and just seems to happen. That’s not our story. We’re cultivating a culture with purpose!

At AIA, belonging is not a “buzzword." It’s an imperative for organizational success and an exceptional employment experience. We want our employees to feel comfortable at work. This includes being treated fairly and respected for their authentic selves and contributions. We want everyone to feel connected to the people they work with and the teams they’re part of. We want people to feel that they contribute to meaningful work outcomes and understand how their unique strengths help their teams achieve goals.

We invite you to bring your talents, your skills, and your authentic self to AIA. And when you receive an offer to work here, say yes because this is where you belong.
