Piedmont Electric’s statement on social justice

America’s electric cooperatives, including Piedmont Electric, are built by and belong to the diverse communities and members we serve. We are founded on seven principles that set us apart from other businesses. Concern for community and the open, democratic structure of co-ops are two of these core principles. With these foundational concepts in mind, we strive to serve our communities and work to enhance the quality of life for our members.

As an employer and an advocate, Piedmont Electric is committed to a positive, inclusive culture. We support policies that foster employee growth and success without fear of discrimination. The ongoing conversation about racism demands that we recognize how we can contribute to a more transparent, fair and accountable society. Piedmont Electric, its leadership and employees are expected to play a leadership role in rejecting racism, speaking against injustice and demonstrating the values of diversity, equity and inclusion.
