Shaping a more equal future
The events in 2020 ignited discussion among Longroad Founders and in 2020 Longroad formed a diversity, equity, and inclusion “DEI” working group, open to any interested employee to join this effort. Our rationale for embarking on this effort is as follows:
- More workforce diversity provides greater perspective in solving problems
- Improve employee attraction and retention: employees and prospective employees are very interested in social topics and want to work in a place where action is being taken
- Having a commitment/ability to provide access to low-cost renewable energy for low-income families is a competitive advantage
- Most importantly, it’s the right thing to do
In addition to establishing the DEI working group, we have joined other clean energy industry leaders in a stand against racism and signed on to the CEO Action Pledge.
We embrace our responsibility to build and promote a diverse, equitable, and inclusive workforce and drive change where we live and operate. We look forward to a continuous journey of reflection and improvement and intentional action.
