Inclusion and diversity fosters innovation and creativity and brings us closer to the communities we serve. At ScottishPower, we want to attract and hire diverse talent whilst developing a workplace that is supportive and open to everyone.
We want ScottishPower to be a place where everyone can be themselves. Our employees lead national networks to promote diversity within ScottishPower. They help to create a culture where everyone feels included. They offer advice and support where it is needed, as well as giving people with common interests a place to come together.
The employee networks play a critical role in achieving our ambitions for diversity and inclusion as well as being vital to the future of our business.
The Carers Network supports employees to integrate work with all aspects of their lives be that caring for family members or other personal commitments.
To celebrate National Carers Week, where 'Connecting carers' was this year's campaign theme, ScottishPower asked Sue McLintock from Carers Scotland to ScottishPower's Glasgow Headquarters to host our first “Awareness Breakfast”.
Connected Women Network
A confident and vibrant network for ScottishPower women. The Connected Women network provides a platform for members to meet regularly to share their experiences and ideas both internally and at external events and they are committed to growing the network further in 2019.
Future Connections Network
ScottishPower Future Connections is a forum which enables ScottishPower employees to take ownership of their career development, build a deeper understanding of the business and grow an internal network. Business challenges, guest speakers and mentoring are just some of the exciting opportunities the forum offers.
In 2018, ScottishPower's newly formed LGBT+ Network, In-Fuse, organised activity to support National Coming Out Day.
