Inclusion, Equity and DiversityWe take pride in the fact that we are all different. When we pull our differences together – including who we are, how we think and what we've experienced – we become better and stronger, together. By building and maintaining a workplace where all team members are treated with dignity, fairness and respect, we are building an environment that promotes success. We believe a diverse, inclusive and respectful workplace that includes diverse backgrounds, experiences and perspectives results in creative, innovative ideas and problem solving, and helps us grow. To advance this commitment, we established an Inclusion, Equity & Diversity Council in 2020. Comprised of team members from across all levels of the business and the state, the Council is focused on making Peoples Gas a company that values differences through engaged and empowered team members who embrace uniqueness and individuality. We raise awareness and champion diversity through team member spotlights and celebrations, company-wide unconscious bias training, and reviewing and aligning our workforce and talent processes and practices to ensure inclusion and diversity.
