Inclusion, Diversity, Equity and Accessibility

Our Commitment

At ESA, we know that valuing diversity and fostering an inclusive environment leads to a more robust exchange of ideas and perspectives which informs our ability to make electrical safety a part of everyone’s reality in Ontario.

Guided by the Global Diversity and Inclusion Benchmark, our IDEA strategic goals are:

  • Diversify the composition and reach for the organization
  • Deepen leadership capacity and accountability 
  • Foster an inclusive work environment

In 2021, we renewed our commitment to the Electricity Human Resources Canada’s Leadership Accord on Diversity, Equity and Inclusion. Read more about the Leadership Accord below.


Diversity, Equity & Inclusion in the electricity sector

Leadership Accord

Signing the new Leadership Accord demonstrates ESA’s commitment to wider Diversity, Equity & Inclusion (DEI). We will include all underrepresented groups as a part of ESA’s Corporate Organizational Excellence Strategy and very comprehensive IDEA program.  

The new Leadership Accord is an extension of the Electricity Sector Gender Accord previously signed by ESA in 2017.


Together, we can make the world more equitable, diverse and inclusive.
