We see diversity as beyond race and gender. We value differences in thinking that arise from different backgrounds, socio-economic, visible and invisible disability, generational and life stages. We are committed to ensuring our employees feel welcomed, valued and included so that they can be as effective and successful as possible at work.
PPL supports the principles of non-discrimination and equal opportunity. We recognize that our communities are diverse, and our goal is to empower others to celebrate differences and raise understanding. We are committed to promoting an inclusive culture through volunteerism and partnerships with nonprofit organizations devoted to furthering diverse, accepting communities.
Each individual has unique circumstances, characteristics and experiences that transcend traditional diversity measures, such as race and gender. PPL’s “We Are Together” initiative shows that when we seek to understand others, only then can we embrace our differences. When we do this, we can all work together to achieve amazing results.
PPL joins more than 150 businesses to make unprecedented commitment to advance inclusion and diversity in the workplace. By signing on to this commitment, PPL pledges to take action to cultivate a workplace where diverse perspectives and experiences are welcomed and respected and where employees feel encouraged to discuss diversity and inclusion issues.
