INDIANAPOLIS- Citizens Energy Group’s Diversity and Inclusion Team received a premiere national award that recognizes, honors and celebrates the outstanding contributions and achievements of its efforts to promote diversity.

“At Citizens, we foster a culture that emphasizes treating each employee and customer with courtesy and respect,” said Jeffrey Harrison, President and CEO of Citizens. “Citizens’ diversity initiative continues to make a noticeable and meaningful impact on our employee hiring practices, our training programs and our selection of contractors and vendors.”
 
Included in Citizens’ diversity initiatives are partnerships with local organizations that help implement successful inclusion practices for individuals living with all types of disabilities.
