Diversity and Inclusion
At Mainstream we are committed to building on the positive culture already in place by integrating diversity, equity and inclusion across all aspects of our organisation.
We are on a journey to creating an even more inclusive and fair organisation where everyone belongs and where we can all be our true selves. Our aim is to have diversity without exclusion, where we understand and value our differences. We are committed to creating an environment where we feel safe to speak up and bringing the same passion to our DE&I journey as we bring to the transition to renewable energy.
We pride ourselves on being a company where we are developing our next leaders alongside a new, renewable energy powered future.
Our bespoke You First platform enables our colleagues to plan their training and career progression.
And our active commitment to breaking bias – creating a truly diverse and inclusive workplace that reflects the world we live in – means there is equal opportunity to seize any of our many new opportunities for promotion and relocation.
See how our culture has been creating very positive first impressions in this short video…
We strive towards a diverse and inclusive workplace where our teams are fully engaged in our vision to electrify the world with renewable energy, and where every employee feels they belong.Elaine Quinlan - Global Head of HR
Bringing greater diversity to the industry
Hear Amisha Patel’s take on the need for greater diversity and inclusion in the renewable energy industry.
Speaking on The Conduit ‘Road to COP27’ podcast, our Head of Global Public Affairs and Policy pushes back at the misconception that having D&I targets means you’ll be compromising on quality.
She says: “It’s about bringing in a range and variety of voices that can enrich what we are trying to deliver.”
Why I can be myself at Mainstream
See why 92% of our colleagues, including our Group Tax Manager, Michael Finlay, say they can be themselves at Mainstream.
92% – that’s how many of our colleagues agreed “I can be myself around here” when asked by Great Place to Work® Ireland.
See how this simple measure of respect could fire your innovation and entrepreneurship as part of a team with a world-saving mission.
See how our colleagues have been committing to #BreakTheBias on international Women’s Day – a bias that prevents so many women playing a full part in society, including their vital role in advancing a just energy transition.
In the communities in which we work, we are opening up new opportunities for women through education and enterprise initiatives.
And in our workplace we are actively promoting greater diversity through:
- Inspiring women through networking
- Empowering through knowledge-sharing
- Helping progression to positions of leadership through skills development
