Duke Energy Named to Black Enterprise’s “50 Best Companies for Diversity” list
Black Enterprise Magazine has once again named Duke Energy to its “50 Best Companies for Diversity” list. The companies singled out for distinction demonstrated a significant commitment to diversity in four key areas: board of directors, employee base, senior management and supplier diversity.
The announcement reflects Duke Energy’s long-standing commitment to foster diversity in our workplace and communities, as well as with the suppliers and providers with whom we partner to serve our customers. Among the programs that Duke Energy offers to advance diversity and inclusion are:
- A 20-year-old network of Employee Resource Groups representing African Americans, Hispanics, women, people with disabilities, new employees, veterans and the LGBT community that work to address the needs of employees, communities and customers.
- Diversity Councils that sponsor local D&I education and awareness activities, and support our diverse customers through volunteerism and community outreach.
- An award-winning supplier diversity program to support minority-owned businesses.
- More than $30 million annually in charitable contributions to support diversity within our communities, focusing on education, workforce development and environmental programs.
