Our commitment to inclusivity, equity and diversity is woven into everything we do, as we firmly believe that a mix of voices, perspectives and approaches leads to delivering our best to our clients, community and each other,” said Howard Tiegel, managing director, Chief Human Resources Officer at SMBC, the Exelon Honor Roll partner with the highest-scoring DEI efforts of those on this year’s banking list. “We are so very proud to be recognized for the fifth consecutive year on Exelon’s Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Honor Roll — it’s truly a testament to the dedication, leadership and passion of our employees, who continue to create, innovate, advocate and participate in our diversity and inclusion programs. We are a better organization because of the contributions of our people.”
In addition, business partner Barclay’s was recognized as “Most Improved” because of its significant efforts over the past year to increase female and minority representation on the teams working with Exelon.
The annual Honor Roll is just one way Exelon is committed to helping advance DEI values. Exelon is a member of the Billion Dollar Roundtable, an organization that promotes corporate supplier diversity excellence. Exelon spent $2.4 billion with diverse suppliers across its six utilities in 2021. Additionally, Exelon, its operating companies and the Exelon Foundation provided $42 million in funding to nonprofit organizations, with 89 percent of its total grants supporting organizations, programs or events that serve the needs of diverse populations. Also last year, Exelon and the Exelon Foundation launched the $36 million Racial Equity Capital Fund to help minority-owned businesses create jobs and expand in communities served by the company’s utilities.
Exelon’s commitment to DEI continues to receive prominent external recognition. In 2022, Forbes named Exelon to its list of America’s Best Employers for Diversity, Just Capital named Exelon to its list of America’s 100 Most Just Companies and the Human Rights Campaign Foundation included Exelon on its Corporate Equality Index as a Best Place to Work for LGBTQ+ Equality.
Honor Roll assessments were performed for the full year 2021 and Exelon distributed the results to our partner firms on behalf of both Exelon and Constellation. Going forward, Exelon will continue this program for its consolidated utility operating companies.
