Courtney Welton Board Member Across her dynamic career, Courtney Welton has been a visionary leader, harnessing legal and compliance functions to transform them from cost centers into value centers with sustainable and scalable organizational improvements. Navigating complex, global organizations as a C-suite business partner at the intersection of legal, business, compliance, and technology initiatives, building agile teams to deliver innovative solutions, and working as a strategic advisor to proactively fuel global business growth is how Courtney has earned her esteemed reputation. As senior vice president, general counsel, Business Law & Compliance, and chief ethics and privacy officer of Allstate Insurance Company, a $50 billion publicly traded Fortune 70 company, Courtney supports 20+ business units and subsidiaries and leads a team of hundreds of direct and indirect employees. She brings a decade of professional experiences in Fortune 200 technology companies to the heavily regulated insurance business, enabling and accelerating Allstate’s transformation. Courtney has spent her career advocating for a more inclusive workplace and helping others break through corporate barriers. She’ll further her work in this area through her involvement with REDF as it invests in and provides scaffolding to businesses that reveal and reinforce the talent of people breaking through barriers to employment. REDF works to ensure that society no longer misses out on this untapped talent by investing in and driving demand for employment social enterprises — businesses that hire the very talent others have sidelined — and provide the training, skill building and support they need to thrive. REDF is a partner of The Allstate Foundation. Their deep expertise in workforce development, commitment to racial equity and focus on entrepreneurship are directly aligned with The Allstate Foundation’s Racial Equity work, which focuses on closing the racial opportunity gap for careers with thriving wages.
