One key to TVA’s success is the extraordinary diversity of its culture — not just in race or gender but also in background, experience, and ideas.

Our Strategy:

  • To develop a comprehensive approach to inclusion
  • Breaking the barriers to drive change
  • Model inclusive behaviors throughout the organization
  • Implement a mentoring for professional development
  • Empower employee resource groups
  • Growing TVA’s School-to-Work Program

TVA works to ensure inclusive staffing through its normal recruiting processes but also by attending focus groups, career fairs, conferences, and other networking events that promote diversity hiring.

Upcoming Events

TVA in partnership with Memphis Light Gas & Water (MLGW), is offering free EnergySmart Memphis Energy Education Workshops in Spanish for non-English speaking Hispanic residential customers. This joint proactive effort between TVA and MLGW was designed to be an outreach to Hispanics which is one of the fastest growing communities in Memphis and Shelby County. These workshops are open to the public year round at various locations, but some sessions are specifically targeted at areas that have large Hispanic populations. Spanish speaking instructors for this program were drawn from various walks of life within the Hispanic community.

For more information about this initiative please contact Jacquelynn Royston at Memphis Light Gas & Water: (901) 528-4188 or
