Acting together

Diversity and Inclusion

Clean Energy Industry Leaders Take a Stand Against Racism

As leaders in our energy industry, we take pride in our mission to make the world a better place to live.

The responsible, safer and sustainable future we all strive towards can only exist with the eradication of racism.

We recognize that only by acting together - as companies, as employees and as communities - will this be achieved.

We acknowledge the need for more diversity in our sector. We commit to listen, learn and work as individual companies and together as an industry to take meaningful action for lasting change. Together, we stand united in solidarity for racial justice and equality, both today and for generations to come.

At Pattern, we are committed to take the following actions in support of this pledge:

  • Launch both a D&I Committee and an employee resource group
  • Accelerate a D&I Learning Path focused on unconscious bias and inclusion
  • Advance diversity in our hiring practices
  • Implement charitable giving opportunities to organizations dedicated to diversity, inclusion & equality
