“At PPL, we see diversity, equity and inclusion as a continual learning journey. We continue our growth through purposeful – and sometimes difficult – conversations around diversity issues and engaging deeply with our workforce and communities to lift up those most at risk, foster understanding, promote unity and advance equity for all.”

LIFE AT PPL
Connecting and engaging employees
We sponsor 16 different employee-led Business Resource Groups (BRGs) across our companies, which provide an opportunity for employees to network, volunteer and actively address diversity issues in the workplace.
“BRGs celebrate the differences among us. In doing so, we make it easier to talk about our differing backgrounds and experiences because we put those differences in the forefront and encourage healthy and productive conversations. Being an ally through our BRGs has resulted in some of the most rewarding experiences I have had. It’s allowed me to grow both professionally and personally.”
