Taking Turns in the Driver’s Seat:
Who Should Push Toward the Finish Line?

This interactive session will focus on recent diversity trends within the utility industry, discuss how organizations are managing challenges and opportunities for supplier and workforce diversity, and identify best practices and lessons learned from organizations nationwide that have effectively “achieved” diversity among their suppliers and workforce. Panelists will discuss their experience with implementing policies. They will explore what more can be done. Participants will suggest who should take the lead — ‘get out of the pit, into the driver’s seat and onto the track’ — to achieve the inclusive and diverse future that we all see ahead of us.
