Calvin Butler is the CEO of Exelon Utilities.
PUF examines our industry's drive to diversify its workforce and spend. This section focuses on the progress at Exelon Utilities described by its CEO Calvin Butler.
PUF: In your role at Exelon, how do you approach diversity, equity, and inclusion? Also, concerning the many communities that you serve, how do you measure success?
Calvin Butler: I believe in the core principles of what we talk about in regard to diversity, equity, and inclusion. I'm proud of Exelon and how it has stepped up to lead not only in the energy sector, but across corporate America. When I think of DEI as a core value of mine and a core value of Exelon, I break it down into three components.
One, it's around our philanthropy. What is our community giving? How can we have a direct impact or how are we having a direct impact on the communities we serve?
The second part of DEI is around our diverse business partners. What are we doing to uplift those companies that are from those communities and drive that?
The third part is around our workforce development initiatives. I can go into each of those in detail. But when you look at DEI for us, those are the three components in which we step out, lead, and say, measure us.
