AMERICAN WATER RELEASES 2021 INCLUSION, DIVERSITY AND EQUITY REPORT
This report details just how far our company has come in recognizing that all backgrounds, ethnicities, and experiences make our company better
WE ARE BEAUTIFULLY DIFFERENT
At American Water, we regularly reflect on our values and our culture. We’re all different, and having that diversity across our organization makes us a great company. We’re strong because we have different ideas, viewpoints, experiences, and backgrounds. Most importantly, we
embrace and expect one another to respect and value those differences.
We believe that ID&E are vital elements to our success. Creating an environment where everyone can bring their whole selves to work is essential for the emotional safety of our employees. We are more successful when our workforce reflects the communities that we serve. We have come a long way, and we know there is more work to do.
Building open and respectful dialogue, listening to different perspectives, and learning from one another is not always easy. We are committed to using our collective voices to continue to get better at building a truly inclusive work environment. At American Water, we say “Include Yourself” because employee engagement is essential in creating a workplace where everyone feels safe, included, and treated with respect and dignity. “Include Yourself” is about empowering employees to contribute and participate in the culture we aim to create and maintain - one that is beautifully different.
