Southern Company continues to make strides in its diversity, equity and inclusion (DE&I) work, according to the company’s second Moving to Equity report, released today. The report details the company’s commitment, progress and actions taken to further advance equity within the company and its communities.
Southern Company launched its Moving to Equity framework in 2020. The Southern Company Management Council decided to focus its efforts on five key areas: talent; workplace environment; community investment and social justice; civic engagement; and supplier inclusion.
The Moving to Equity report published this week reiterates Southern Company’s commitments to these pillars, tracks progress of long-term goals, highlights key results and outlines how the company has and will continue to hold itself accountable.
Key takeaways from the report for 2022 include:
“Over the past three years, we have made great strides in advancing our Moving to Equity work,” said Tom Fanning, chairman, president and CEO of Southern Company. “Though we have made real progress and I am proud of what we have accomplished, there is still work to be done. We will continue to be steadfast and persistent as we advance equity every day. We are committed to making this work a sustaining effort, because, in the end, everyone will be better off for it.”
