Diversity & Culture

Diversity and inclusion is one key to our success. Companies have stronger collaboration and achieve better business performance from diverse groups of employees. In the crucial skill sets of problem solving, conflict resolution, vetting ideas and creativity, diversity always wins.

Exelon demonstrates its belief in diversity by:

  • Integrating diversity as a business imperative and core value
  • Attracting, retaining and advancing employees who will represent our customers, partners and communities
  • Providing a workplace that ensures we respect one another and that each of us has the opportunity to grow and contribute at our greatest potential.

Diversity and inclusion is the right thing to do, and a business imperative that benefits everyone from employees to customers to shareholders. It engages people, and enriches our relationships.

"At Exelon, we believe that we can deliver best on our commitments by having a diverse and inclusive team. Including diverse perspectives into our thinking leads to greater innovation, increased employee engagement and better solutions to take advantage of opportunities and overcome challenges”

– Chris Crane, Exelon President and CEO
 

EMPLOYEE RESOURCE GROUPS

Exelon’s Employee Resource Groups (ERGs) support diversity and inclusion, bring us fresh insights and serve as a resource to the corporation and our employees. Employees initiate these company wide groups. They’re voluntary and welcoming to all. Current ERGs represent various communities including:

Exelon African-American Resource Alliance (EAARA) is an employee-driven organization supporting the recruitment, retention and professional development of African-American employees to give Exelon a competitive and strategic advantage.

Asian American Resource Group (AARG) is a bridge to the Asian American community within the Exelon family of companies and in the cities and towns we serve. It’s a resource that enables employee members to achieve their goals.

Developing Young Professionals (DYP) is a cross-functional organization that develops, connects and empowers employees. This group offers a wide range of opportunities for professional growth, networking and community service.

Eco-Team is a grassroots catalyst for sustained, carbon-reducing behavioral change. It supports environmental entrepreneurs and enthusiasts who want to implement innovative, cost-effective workplace solutions.

Network of Exelon Women (NEW) highlights the enormous contributions women make at Exelon and throughout the energy industry. It provides support, information sharing and experiences that help them be even more successful.

 

Diversity and inclusion goals

Exelon developed a formal diversity and inclusion strategy in 2008. We build on it every day, with a culture that recognizes our similarities and embraces our differences.

Workforce: attract, develop and retain talent of diverse backgrounds that reflects the realities of our marketplace, our communities and the relevant labor market.

Workplace: create a culture of inclusion through sustained execution of the Exelon Diversity & Inclusion Strategy, including progress measurement and accountability for results.

Suppliers: achieve a diverse range of suppliers, vendors and service providers.

Communities: ensure significant reach and presence in a strategic core group of diverse, community-based organizations (CBOs).

Leadership: be recognized as a diversity and inclusion leader by employees, local, regional, and national thought leaders, and the communities we serve.

Committing to diversity and inclusion is the right thing to do from both a business and a moral sense. It’s why Exelon is leading the industry in equal pay and family leave. At our 2017 Innovation Expo, Maggie Fitzpatrick, SVP of Corporate Affairs, reflected on the inclusive values Exelon puts into action every day. Watch why we want our employees to be free to be themselves at work.
