  • Ensure diverse candidates in our hiring slates and hiring panels;
  • Develop our diverse lawyers to prepare them for advancement in the organization;
  • Increase the number of diverse law firms we retain for our legal matters;
  • Use the American Bar Association’s Model Diversity Survey to evaluate our outside law firms and then prioritize the hiring of those law firms that focus successfully on diversity;

  • Name to Exelon Legal’s Annual Diversity Honor Roll and publicize internally and externally those law firms that successfully prioritize diversity and staff our matters at the highest levels with diverse legal teams;
  • Take steps to develop a diverse legal pipeline, including by sponsoring diverse summer law clerks and fostering mentoring programs for diverse first-year law students;
  • Prioritize and allow time for our employees to participate in pro bono and volunteer opportunities that benefit our communities; and
  • Ensure that, by aligning team values to fostering a diverse pipeline and supporting our communities through pro bono and volunteer efforts, we are not just talking about diversity, equity, and inclusion, but standing up, speaking out, and driving social change.
