Diversity and Inclusion
Business Partner of Choice
Entergy has long been recognized as a business that works with the people whom
we serve. In 1987, we became the first electric utility holding company in the
nation to commit to the National Association for the Advancement of Colored
People's Fair Share Principles. Since that time, Entergy has logged more than
$500 million with minority and women suppliers who provide a wide range of
goods and services.
As with any major corporation, we utilize a wide range of goods and services
from external sources. Our suppliers provide everything from office supplies
to electrical components to construction. Entergy is aware, however, that
impending deregulation in the electric utility industry will mean increased
competition and a demand for more leveraged purchasing, thus creating more
sub-contracting and second-tier opportunities. This makes our Supplier
Diversity Program an essential element of our continued success.
