Dominion has a longstanding track record of supporting diversity initiatives in the communities where we operate. We do so through charitable giving programs, diverse partnerships and volunteer outreach.
The Dominion Foundation provided grants to a variety of minority organizations. Examples include the Black History Museum & Cultural Center of Virginia; the Italian Festival in West Virginia; and the UNCF for Hard Hatted Women in Ohio. Focus areas for our diversity grants include workforce development and education, as well as basic human needs for food, shelter and essential medical treatment.
In Virginia, Dominion Virginia Power and the Library of Virginia offer a student writing contest as part of the Strong Men & Women in Virginia History Program. The writing contest provides an opportunity for high school students to write a creative essay from a prompt question related to a strong leader or positive role model.
We also empower employee volunteers to work hand-in-hand with numerous community-based organizations. That could mean building homes for deserving families, working with Special Olympians, participating in diversity walks, or donating care packages to American troops overseas, among others.
