For the second consecutive year, Southern Company has been named to Black Enterprise’s 50 Best Companies for Diversity in 2018. After conducting an extensive study, Black Enterprise compiled a list to honor the corporations leading the way to a more diverse future.
The companies are selected for their commitment to creating pathways to more dynamic workforces, representative corporate governance, expansive supplier pools and inclusive management. The Black Enterprise editorial team examined the ethnic and gender composition of these corporations and sought to understand their diversity and inclusion programs.
At Southern Company, diversity and inclusion are of utmost importance. Across the corporation, we promote and foster our vision of creating an “inclusive environment where all employees, regardless of their differences, feel welcomed, valued, respected and engaged.”
Southern Company puts diversity into action by partnering with diverse suppliers, including women- and minority-owned businesses. At Southern Company, diversity programs like the Mentor Program and Second Tier Program aim to support the growth and vitality of the diverse communities where our employees work and live both now and in the years to come.
