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.”
