Cleco is committed to building a diverse work force and creating an inclusive work environment.

For Cleco, diversity is the representation of many different types of employees. When people think of diversity, they often think of demographics like race or gender. However, diversity is much more than that. Diversity includes characteristics such as ethnicity, sexual orientation, religion, socio-economic status, experiences, education, values, backgrounds, ideas and knowledge from various groups in our workplace.

To us, inclusion means valuing, understanding, respecting and allowing these diverse voices to contribute a perspective not yet considered. When you proactively pursue both diversity and inclusion, the outcome will almost always lead to new discoveries, more creativity and solutions to problems that benefit everyone.
