DEIJ Certification Program Annual Report 2022
In October 2021, SEIA launched its Diversity, Equity, Inclusion and Justice (DEIJ) Certification Program. The DEIJ Certification Program encourages broad participation and rewards companies working in earnest to create a more inclusive work environment, serve their communities, and attract, hire, promote, and retain diverse talent. This program is part of SEIA’s broader DEIJ efforts and underscores the importance of company-level contributions to the industry’s diversity efforts.
During its first year in the field, 45 companies enrolled in the program, 19 organizations achieved Bronze certification, two achieved Silver, and one company achieved Gold. Participating companies have made tremendous strides and gained a new or renewed commitment to DEIJ efforts within their company and their communities.
This annual report chronicles the first year of the program and discusses the program’s next steps.
