Energy and Utility Industries drive towards diversity and inclusion

Energy & Utility Skills are inviting all organisations in the sector to join the Inclusion Measurement Framework free of charge

For the past two years, Energy & Utility Skills have been working with over 50 Chief Executives who have made a commitment towards improving equality, diversity, and inclusion (EDI) within the sector.

This commitment and the actions being taken are monitored through the Inclusion Measurement Framework and published annually.

Energy & Utility Skills are now inviting all organisation in the sector to participate in the survey enabling them to benchmark their data by sector; industry (water, power, waste, gas, supply chain); organisations of similar size; and geography.

The survey has also been extended to include senior leaders, which will provide a unique snapshot of the views of sector CEOs and their leadership teams on what leading on inclusion means for them, as well as providing insights into their diversity journeys to positions of leadership.

The results from last year’s survey are available here and have formed a basis for much analysis of trends in equality, diversity, and inclusion.

Phil Beach CBE, Chief Executive of Energy & Utility Skills, said: “Now in its third year, the Inclusion Measurement Framework provides unparalleled EDI insights for our industries.  As well as the opportunity to benchmark progress, the framework provides clear evidence for industry and individual employers to target diversity and inclusion action.

“This is a great opportunity for companies of all sizes to get involved and drive forward change in energy and utility industries.”

Any organisation looking to participate can register here to submit their data.

Participation is free of charge to any company within the sector.

Data submission opened from 1 September until 14 October 2022. Organisations which register will receive a link to submit data when the submission window opens.
