Women make up about 20 percent of the country’s utility industry workforce, and at Duke Energy, we're on a mission to increase diversity and strengthen a culture that supports it.
Duke Energy has powered the lives of its customers for more than a century. From charging your cell phone to running a business, electricity is at the foundation of everything we do. The company’s purpose hasn’t changed, but as the industry evolves and we find new ways to generate cleaner energy and provide the products and services that customers ask for, we’ll be stronger if our workforce reflects the communities we serve.
