Our staff leadership strives to create a culturally diverse, equitable and inclusive organization with people representing a variety of perspectives, experiences, skills and ideas.
Employee Mentorship Program
We offer a mentorship program to all newly hired staff, as well as employees looking to develop specific skill sets and knowledge from current staff. Mentors serve as trusted advisors, providing a sounding board for day-to-day matters and alternative perspectives on problem solving.
Employee Affinity Groups
We offer five employee-led affinity groups to support staff by creating safe spaces where everyone in the group shares a particular identity. Affinity groups provide an opportunity for staff to come together to feel more connected.
Diversity Days and DEI Events
Energy Trust hosts a monthly Diversity Day for staff and invites partners and members of the community to join for education and discussion.
Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Committee
Our committee of staff and external experts meets regularly to guide our efforts and track our progress. Members include staff from all departments and levels of the organization.
