Recently, INTREN formed a Diversity Action Council in order to create a structured and ongoing approach to our diversity goals.
The council’s strategic initiatives include enhancing diverse recruitment, fostering ERGs, retaining and developing diverse talent, utilizing external diversity advisors, and recommitting to diversity education. As a WBE and a tier 2 diversity supplier, INTREN has long been dedicated to diversity, equity, and inclusion. As the first utility contractor to pledge our support to CEO Action in 2019, we joined 900 global CEOs to take collective action on DEI in the workplace.
Our focus has long been on supporting diversity-focused third-party efforts and mentoring/supporting diverse subcontractors. Internally, we have conducted unconscious bias training, along with having a Culture Team focused on diversity initiatives.
However, this is only the beginning. We look forward to working closely with our customers and fostering continued positive change throughout our organizations.
