Angelica Tritzo Chief Diversity Officer & Chief Information Officer
"I personally believe that all of us have much to contribute to creating a more inclusive workplace. We all have a role to play in this journey.
Our commitment is to build an inclusive culture where each of us is empowered to speak up, promote inclusion and call out biases or inequities. We build diverse teams and perspectives with the aim of building a culture where everyone can bring their best self to work – where they feel accepted, respected and that they belong.
We eradicate any form of discrimination, racism, or harassment. In achieving this, we are activating capabilities in all our employees across the globe. Our policies and processes drive awareness around Inclusion, Diversity and Equality and help provide the structure to create and nurture the culture we want.
We have and need more of the best and brightest ideas, thinkers, innovators, and diversity of thought, experience, product and people. In our business, unity works and our sense of belonging creates a business where everyone benefits from our culture."
In partnership with Leyla Nematollahi, Culture & Diversity Leader for Renewable Energy, and our teams around the world, we intentionally drive our Inclusion, Diversity & Equality strategy, and action plan to make a difference everywhere we operate.

As the group evolves from awareness and allyship to advocacy, they remain committed to driving transformative growth.
Asian Pacific Allies & Friends (APAF)
Founded to support GE’s Asian Pacific Islander American (APIA) employees across North America, APAF offers education and mentoring opportunities to grow leadership abilities.

GE Renewable Energy's 2020 Workforce Representation Data
GE Renewable Energy is a truly global company: Over 85% of our employees are based outside of the United States and our workforce represents nationalities from more than 144 countries.
The data shared is representative of GE’s workforce as of December 31, 2020* and covers two dimensions of diversity:global gender and U.S. race and ethnic minority. We see this as the beginning of a journey to improve the depth and breadth of our diversity data. In the future this might include self-identified data types such as sexual orientation, disability, and military service. Click here to read GE's 2020 Diversity Report
