Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion are rooted in S&C’s values and guiding principles, which signify our respect for people and a culture that promotes trust, teamwork, dignity, and respect within our diverse workforce. Our team members and communities look to S&C to make substantive change for the better, and we continually strive to do so.

Diversity

Diversity helps drive our innovation and competitiveness by drawing on the knowledge and experiences of the broadest range of talent. In 2020, 57 percent of full-time S&C team members were represented by persons of color and 17 percent were represented by female-identifying team members. In terms of the diversity of our salaried team members, 19 percent were represented by female-identifying team members and 31 percent represented by persons of color.

While being diverse overall, one area we have identified for improvement is diversity within our salaried positions. The journey to impact the diversity of our teams starts with how we find and attract the next generation of S&Cers. In 2020, a strategy was developed to bring more equity, transparency, and consistency to the talent-acquisition process. Initiatives to help drive change included:

  • Improving recruiting process consistency to increase the diversity of our candidate pools
  • Identifying a dedicated Talent Outreach and Engagement Manager to proactively partner with communities and to attract more candidates from underrepresented populations, specifically people of color and women
  • Partnering with diverse industry associations: Society of Women Engineers, Women in Manufacturing, National Society of Black Engineers, American Association of Blacks in Energy, Society of Hispanic Professional Engineers, WomenInTech, GirlsCode, and others
  • Broadening our university outreach and including historically black colleges and universities
  • Amplifying language in job postings that encourages more women and minority applicants
  • Defining and promoting diversity, equity, and inclusion in onboarding and specifically highlighting S&C’s affinity groups
  • Training S&C leadership and recruiters on S&C’s Affirmative Action program and goals
  • Identifying and partnering with search firms that target minorities, women, veterans, and other underrepresented populations

 

Our results show a significant increase in the number of persons of color and female-identifying team members. Of the new hires in 2020, 62 percent were represented by persons of color while 23 percent were female-identifying. Progress was also made for salaried positions, with 41 percent of salaried new hires being represented by persons of color and 28 percent being represented by female-identifying team members.

Equity

S&C’s team members are the key to our success, and it is our responsibility to continue to implement equity in our policies, practices, and services. Some programs we’ve developed include:

Inclusion

Taking care of team members, in alignment with S&C’s core values and guiding principles of “Respect for People,” involves making sure all voices are heard and valued, no matter their racial or ethnic background, gender identity, or other diverse status. To foster this culture, S&C has several affinity groups centered around diversity and inclusion:

Inclusion, Diversity, Engagement & Awareness (I.D.E.A. Group)
Promote and maintain a diverse and inclusive work environment

Spectrum
Foster a safe, supportive environment for LGBTQ+ team members, and educate all S&C team members about the LGBTQ+ community and meaningful allyship

Women's Empowerment Group (WEG)
Champion personal development and provide all S&Cers with networking and educational opportunities

Among the key objectives of S&C’s affinity groups is to educate team members and build awareness around the various cultures represented within S&C. To help accomplish this goal, the groups held a variety of events based on specific themes. These events included celebrating:

Equal Opportunity and Respect in the Workplace

S&C supports diversity and equal opportunity in employment. All employment decisions are based on job-related criteria such as skill, ability, and experience.
 
S&C team members are expected to treat others professionally and with respect while maintaining a working environment free from the damaging effects of harassment and discrimination on the basis of race, color, creed, religion, gender, age, sexual orientation, national origin, disability, veteran status, or marital status.
