At Duke Energy, we believe in the power of diversity and inclusion. Our commitment to diversity and inclusion is strategically integrated into the way we do business, and our Diversity & Inclusion Councils play a vital role in ensuring we maintain an inclusive culture to facilitate leadership and employee engagement. These councils serve to advance diversity and inclusion from an initiative to a core value by creating a platform for learning, understanding and meeting the unique needs of our employees. Diversity & Inclusion Council efforts include workplace initiatives to heighten awareness and educate our workforce on the business case for diversity and inclusion. Our councils are also actively engaged in the communities we serve - from participating in volunteer efforts at local non-profit agencies to mentoring at schools.
