Diversity and Inclusion

Diversity and Inclusion

At Avangrid, we strive to build, sustain, and empower a diverse workforce with a rich mix of differences. To us, this means creating inclusive workplaces where every employee feels valued and where there are equitable opportunities for everyone to grow and develop. Living the values of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion is critical to our success and as such we have prioritized initiatives in three key areas:

  • Increasing diverse representation, especially in leadership positions.
  • Promoting equitable opportunities to grow and develop.
  • Establishing pathways for community and connection with others.

 

 

We are proud to be members of Paradigm for Parity and CEO Action! for Diversity and Inclusion, as well as continuing our longtime partnership with leading industry associations such as the Edison Electric Institute (EEI) and American Gas Association (AGA) as together we drive continuous improvement in the utility sector.

 


                                

Employee Leadership

Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Council

In 2020, we brought together a diverse group of employees across our business areas who are partnering with leadership to strengthen our work-life community, while promoting an organizational culture that supports inclusion and belonging. 

Business Resource Groups (BRGs)

We understand that establishing and sustaining tangible pathways for connections, inside and outside of AVANGRID, is an important piece of building community. We have a growing network of BRGs for our employee community including:

AVANGRID’s African American Council for Excellence (AAACE)

AAACE aims to nurture a culturally progressive workplace through the enhancement of career development of African American/Black employees; union and non-union; to leverage the power of diversity.

ACAPA aims to support optimal representation and influence for Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) employees at every level and employer members to become leaders within Avangrid and its communities.
