AABE Participates in Diversity Forum at PPL

September 20, 2010

Recognizing the importance of a diverse workforce, PPL (headquartered in Allentown, PA) hosted a community organization outreach event to solicit input from community organizations on ways to increase diversity in their workforce.  Among the many speakers at the event were PPL Chairman Jim Miller and Steve Russo, Vice President of Human Resources and Services.  During the well-attended event, Chairman Miller stated “they were concerned about sourcing a diverse workforce in the future.” 

Towards the end of the event the audience was broken into groups with each assigned a PPL facilitator to “brainstorm” on ways to diversify and market their career opportunities.  Dianne Oliver, Mid-Atlantic Regional Coordinator and Nancy Mifflin, Philadelphia Chapter President attended the event on behalf of AABE.  They recognized that the session was an excellent opportunity to foster a relationship between AABE and PPL and a way to expose all of the talent and diverse backgrounds the AABE membership has to offer.  To learn more about career opportunities at PPL, log on to their website, www.pplweb.com/careers.
