Diversity Matters at Dominion Energy

Welcoming different perspectives builds a more creative and innovative workplace, leading to greater productivity, improved profit margins, and better service to our customers and other stakeholders.


Diversity Councils

Our commitment to diversity begins at the top.

The Executive Diversity Council sets and monitors objectives for workforce and supplier diversity, corporate philanthropy and community involvement. In addition, each of Dominion Energy’s business units has its own diversity council, which works alongside the executive sponsors to promote diversity and inclusion within the company.

Diversity

Reflecting Our Communities

We seek to hire employees who reflect the people we serve. We will continue to diversify our workforce to better represent the changing demographics of the communities in which we do business.

We’re proud to be partners with many diverse suppliers. We have found small, minority, women, veteran, service-disabled veteran, LGBTQ and disability-owned businesses are a rich source of ideas and deliver real value to our company. These relationships strengthen our communities and contribute substantially to our success.
