Exelon has named 11 banks, insurance companies and professional services organizations to its annual diversity and inclusion “honor roll” for demonstrating their dedication to these values.
Now in its fourth year, the program is part of Exelon’s effort to promote diversity and inclusion among the firms that provide critical services to the company’s finance organization.
This year’s honorees are:
- Banks: BNP Paribas, Citibank, J.P. Morgan, Mitsubishi UFG and Northern Trust Company
- Insurance firms: AEGIS Insurance Services, Inc. and Beecher Carlson
- Professional services organizations: Deloitte & Touche LLP, Ernst & Young LLP, PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP and Towers Watson
“At Exelon, we know that diversity and inclusion broadens our perspective and creates high-performing employees and a strong business,” said Jonathan W. (Jack) Thayer, executive vice president and chief financial officer at Exelon. “We are constantly working to put these values into action and believe it is important to hold the companies that we work with to the same standards. The honor roll is one way we help them to do this.”
The program challenges participating partner firms to be inclusive of diverse individuals, including women and people of color, on the teams that service Exelon, and provide them the opportunity to make meaningful contributions at all levels of the project teams. The program provides firms with an incentive to improve their performance by demonstrating a shared commitment to diversity and inclusion.
“We are honored to once again be recognized for our commitment to diversity and inclusion by Exelon Corporation,” said Connie Lindsey, executive vice president and head of corporate social responsibility and global diversity and inclusion at Northern Trust. “At Northern Trust, we believe diversity is essential to the success of our business and provides the best service to our clients. Participating in Exelon’s honor roll program affirms our continuous focus and execution of best practices around diversity and inclusion at Northern Trust.”
