Opportunities for Diversity in Energy: Industry & HBCU Recruitment
To attract and retain the most diverse and inclusive talent to solve the complex challenges of the energy future, industry is expanding its traditional models of recruitment. These efforts include prioritizing diversity and broadening the network of higher education institutions from which companies recruit. In a dialogue with Chevron and the Thurgood Marshall College Fund, this CERAWeek Conversation highlights the outreach to one specific subset of American higher education: Historically Black Colleges and Universities. Through its recruitment partnership with these institutions and the communities they represent, how is industry strengthening its talent pipeline and fostering corporate diversity?
