Zaghloul-Daly said APS rose above the other finalists for the award largely because of our robust, multi-year diversity, equity, and inclusion strategy. The strategy incorporates feedback from our Employee Networking Groups, gained from their willingness to engage in dialogue through listening sessions, panel discussions and cultural events. In addition, she also credited APS’s officer team for its commitment, support and dedication to diversity, equity and inclusion efforts, recognizing that this work is an important part of who we are as a company. Last, she noted the strong partnerships and outreach with underrepresented groups in the communities APS serves.
“We should take pride in the work we have done so far and recognize that the journey is far from done,” Zaghloul-Daly said. “We have developed a strong strategic diversity, equity and inclusion plan and have a solid foundation with an inclusive culture we continue to create.”
