Diversity

LG&E and KU have long recognized the importance of diversity – within our work force, our supplier relationships and the communities we serve.

Diversity is one of our company's critical business initiatives and an important corporate value. We are committed to being a leader in diversity.

We focus our diversity initiative on three key partners.

Employees

LG&E and KU Energy LLC is an equal opportunity employer. As such, we:

  • Recruit, hire and promote for all jobs without regard to race, color, religion, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, disability, age, marital status or veteran status;
  • Make all staffing decisions based solely on an individual's qualifications; and
  • Rigorously enforce federal, state and local laws relating to harassment or discrimination.

Recruiting top talent is critical to our organization's continued success. The company is enriched by the diverse experiences, backgrounds, ethnicities, education, lifestyles, and cultural differences of our employees. At its core, LG&E and KU's commitment to a diverse workforce is about treating everyone — customers and colleagues — with dignity and respect.

Likewise, the company is committed to developing all employees to their full potential. To achieve this goal, our human resource systems support individual development and recognize job performance, and we regularly review these systems to ensure they continue to support our diverse culture.

 

LG&E and KU Energy LLC (LG&E and KU) is an equal opportunity, affirmative action employer dedicated to diversity and the strength it brings to our workplace.  Qualified applicants receive consideration for employment without regard to race, color, sex, national original, protected veteran or disability status.

Community

LG&E and KU have a steadfast and unwavering commitment to the communities they serve. This commitment began more than a century ago when our predecessor company lit the sprawling little town of Louisville with one of the nation's first natural gas street lights. This commitment has continued to grow over the years and positively impacts thousands of individuals in Kentucky.

We contribute resources, talent and ideas that support community heritage and economic growth through our commitment to corporate responsibility. Corporate Responsibility means supporting our communities through environmental stewardship, volunteerism, strategic community investments and other initiatives such as:

  • Investing more than $2.6 billion over the past three decades on emission controls to protect Kentucky's environment
  • Raising millions of dollars to support agencies and nonprofit groups.
  • Employees giving countless volunteer hours to improve our communities.

Dedicated to integrity and accountability

The LG&E and KU leadership teams are dedicated to guiding this company with the high levels of integrity and accountability our stakeholders expect. Aligning our company's process and policies with these Corporate Responsibility areas allow us to identify, measure and report the effectiveness of our programs and initiatives.

Our corporate goal of achieving excellence in business performance can be accomplished only when our plans and actions are compatible with expectations and interests of our stakeholders – our employees, customers, suppliers, the environment and the communities we impact.
