Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI)


Diversity refers to the range of human and/or organizational differences and similarities. This range includes personal dimensions of diversity related to ethnicity, race, gender, sexual orientation, age and physical ability, as well as factors including (but not limited to) parental/family status, work experience, educational background, geographic location, organizational affiliation and management status.


Equity refers to fairness regarding the utilization of practices, policies and systems maintained by the organization. At ENGIE, we seek to remedy inequities that can result from individual differences. Employees can succeed at ENGIE regardless of their race, gender, ethnicity, age, religion, sexual orientation, physical ability or socioeconomic status. Employees are evaluated based only on performance results, leadership potential, behaviors and competencies.


Inclusion refers to creating a work environment and culture where differences are valued, respected and leveraged as a business enabler without bias. In an inclusive organization, all employees feel a sense of belonging. Everyone has an opportunity to contribute and achieve success at ENGIE.

Every single day we continue to make progress towards creating an inclusive space for all. At ENGIE in North America we are a diverse and committed group of transition makers that strive to make a difference to our planet and people every day. Diversity, Equity & Inclusion (DEI) is a critical business imperative at ENGIE. We work hard to create a culture where everyone counts and feels free to give their best.

Our long-term DEI strategy has been developed through a systemic approach both at the global and regional levels. At a global level, we will focus on the following 5 dimensions of DEI:

Gender | LGBTQ+ | Abilities | Generations | Origins

In the North America region, while we take pride in being an industry leader in DEI, we also recognize that we have to keep making progress. With this in mind, we worked with our employees and leaders to develop a strategic DEI Roadmap that we have already started to deliver on. We have adapted the Educate – Embed – Evaluate model to continuously challenge and improve ourselves on DEI. The following are elements core to our DEI Strategy

Employee Resource Groups | Mindful Leadership | Culture Council

DEI is weaved into our culture and our DNA at ENGIE North America and truly make us who we are. Year over year, our employees continue to tell us that the reason they like to work for ENGIE is the truly because of the diverse and collaborative people and teams they work with every day. Are we perfect? Not yet. Are we working towards getting there? You bet. Come join us and learn more.

How Our Employees Belong

Alex Jamis
Senior Customer Engagement Analyst
“Diversity, equity and inclusion isn’t a checklist, it’s a journey. And the journey can be long if you’re taking the time to listen and learn. But this process and the journey are well worth it. Some of my best memories at ENGIE are from my involvement in the company’s various employee resource groups (ERGs), which aim to cultivate a safe, healthy and more inclusive workplace for our people.”

Director, Energy Solutions
“When ENGIE in North America initially stood up the DEI Committee, I was recommended as a potential member. From the first engagement with that select group of individuals, I knew I was where I was supposed to be. We instantly were able to be vulnerable, transparent and frank with each other about real challenges and issues and what we wanted the DEI culture at ENGIE to be. Again, I was honored to be on this team when ENGIE chose not to further engage with a selected DEI consultant due to performance not in line with our expectations. ENGIE in North America has accelerated changes to our culture and positioned ourselves as the organization to emulate for the Group. The establishment of the Culture Council has further anchored our commitment to Diversity, Equity and Inclusion in every aspect of our professional and personal experiences.”

“I enjoy making a positive difference and giving back to the communities we serve. Our differences are our strengths as an organization and our leadership team provides a supportive environment for our DEI efforts to flourish. As one of the founders of hOla! ERG, I get to do just that, while enhancing our company culture and bringing individuals and teams together for a good cause and bringing out the best in everyone.”
