Exelon’s ongoing commitment to diversity, equity and inclusion within the company and in the communities it serves secured the company’s 24th place ranking on DiversityInc’s list of the Top 50 Companies for Diversity and Inclusion. Exelon moved up five positions compared with 2020 due in large part to a continued focus on driving an inclusive culture and strengthening workforce development and investments in underserved communities, which were disproportionately impacted during the pandemic.
“A key part of our mission is driving positive change within Exelon and our communities. Internally, we’ve redoubled our focus on diversity, equity and inclusion, reinforcing an inclusive culture through annual performance goals, hiring practices and increased transparency,” said Chris Crane, president and CEO, Exelon. “Equally important is our role helping lift up under-resourced communities. By eliminating barriers to economic opportunity through STEM education and workforce development efforts, we are preparing work-ready adults and youth for family-supporting careers.”
Issued yearly since 2001, the DiversityInc Top 50 list recognizes the nation’s top companies for diversity and inclusion management. It is an empirically driven ranking based on recruitment, talent development, senior leadership commitment and supplier diversity. The winning companies excel in areas such as hiring, retaining and promoting women, minorities, people with disabilities, LGBTQ and veterans.
Exelon also ranked No. 13 for LGBTQ inclusiveness and community ties and among the top companies for Environmental, Social and Governance values, making both of these DiversityInc specialty Top Company lists.
Exelon is committed to diversity, equity and inclusion across its business and in the communities it serves. Each member of Exelon’s Executive Committee is responsible for developing an annual Diversity, Equity and Inclusion plan, and each employee is responsible for establishing and meeting an annual DEI goal. In 2020, $46 million, or 84 percent, of Exelon’s grant funding supported organizations, programs or events that were targeted specifically to diverse populations. Supplier diversity is an important part of Exelon’s commitment to equity, providing opportunities for minority- and women-owned businesses to grow and develop. Exelon increased its spend by 15 percent to $2.7 billion with diverse suppliers in 2020 and is a member of the Billion Dollar Roundtable.
