Energy UK comments on energy companies pledge to improve workforce diversity
Responding to the commitment made by over 30 of the UK’s biggest energy and utility companies today to increase the diversity of their workforces, Abbie Sampson, Energy UK's director of external affairs, said:
“The commitment made today by over 30 energy and utilities companies to build a more inclusive and diverse workforce is a positive step forward. Energy UK has been leading efforts to promote diversity and inclusion across our sector including the launch of a new ‘Equality and Diversity Forum’ which brings together large and small organisations to share best practice, foster collaboration and highlight successes in driving change.
“Our sector is undergoing a rapid transition and with that comes an opportunity to create a more diverse and inclusive industry, and better reflect the customers and communities we serve.”
