Diversity, Inclusion & Belonging

​​​​Energy Northwest values diversity, inclusion and belonging. An engaged, diverse workforce will lead us into the clean energy future. To innovate, we create an environment where individuals from all backgrounds and experiences feel welcome and respected, and every employee has a voice.

To achieve our goals, we cultivate a respectful, inclusive culture that reflects our workforce and community. We continuously improve by creating space to safely challenge each other and push ourselves to achieve excellence.

We support diversity, inclusion and belonging in the workplace in the following ways:

  • We maintain a Diversity, Inclusion & Belonging Council comprised of employees from a variety of backgrounds from all levels of the company.

  • We provide all employees with safe avenues to provide input and voice concerns regarding diversity, inclusion and belonging in our workplace.

  • We support flexible work arrangements to the extent we are able to accommodate the needs of a diverse workforce.

  • We seek employee input through formal and informal methods to identify areas for growth and incorporate that feedback into leadership actions.
