Diversity, equity and inclusion

Diverse perspectives, experiences and ideas empower us all

The most meaningful and lasting solutions come from working with a broad range of communities. To be successful, our organization must reflect the world in which we operate.

EDF is on a journey toward this goal. We’re committed to making transformative change to ensure a work culture in which everyone feels they belong — while always being transparent about our progress.

The DEI Council and our workforce

Our Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Council works to advance initiatives that develop and maintain diversity and the practice of inclusion within our operation, management and culture.

Every EDF employee is expected, along with our DEI leaders, to foster an atmosphere where everyone’s contributions are encouraged and valued.
