Diversity & Inclusion at PSEG


Overview

Diversity and inclusion makes things work for our employees, our business operations, our customers and our community. Providing energy and energy services to one of most diverse regions in the nation is an important distinction for PSEG.

As a responsible corporate citizen and a leader in the energy field, we know that reflecting, valuing and leveraging diversity and inclusion means we'll continue to attract different people with different minds who bring us better ideas and the best solutions.

We are on a journey to continuously bolster our commitment to a diverse and inclusive workplace. Active participation from employees in a whole range of efforts – from the PSEG Diversity and Inclusion Council as well as our sub councils and teams to our employee business resource groups, have and will continue to help us achieve progress on this journey.

Our Diversity and Inclusion Commitment

 

Diversity embraces the full breadth of all people, their ideas, thoughts and perspectives, and a vast blend of organizational and human characteristics, experiences, needs and traditions of our people. Inclusion is demonstrated by a culture that fosters a sense of belonging to all members of the organization so that they are welcomed, respected and valued, as both human beings and business partners. Diversity and inclusion drive success across our company, and are an essential part of everything we do, every day.

PSEG needs everyone to be able to perform at their highest capability, feel trusted, and have the opportunity to be heard in the workplace. In order to achieve our operational excellence, reliability, profitability, and customer service objectives, we must develop our workforce to reflect and respect our marketplace and our communities. We must develop an inclusive culture that empowers all of our people to contribute to our successes. A win-win-win.

We will achieve our diversity and inclusion goals by building on the following values:

TRUST - We trust each other's opinions and decisions and proactively address diversity and inclusion opportunities and challenges. We assume positive intent.

RESPECT - We approach each day with the determination to demonstrate dignity and respect for ourselves, coworkers, stakeholders and the communities we serve.

KNOWLEDGE - We become effective allies for others by learning about cultures, traditions, and life experiences different from our own.

AUTHENTICITY - We communicate in a clear, open and honest manner, with integrity and reflecting our commitment to diversity and inclusion principles and practices. We have the courage and conviction to speak up. We will not look the other way when something is wrong.
