A Culture of Belonging
Employee Resource Groups (ERGs) are a great way to connect people across Sunrun, to share stories, resources, experiences and to support the business.
Sunrun participates in a variety of programs to recruit and retain US veterans, including a veteran referral program, military base job fair partnership development, veteran workforce programs and apprenticeship programs. In addition to participation in the Veteran Employee Resource group, Veterans & Allies, eligible Active Duty, Reserve and National Guard employees receive 10 paid days per year for military duty or leave.
To commemorate the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall uprising, the Sunrun LGBTQ+ Employee Resource Group organized a panel discussion with members of the LGBTQ+ community and allies who shared their experiences.
Sunrun became a supporter of the DIY Invent Girls program, furthering our mission to make solar more inclusive and inspiring young girls to go into STEM careers in the clean energy industry.
Celebrating International Women’s Day and Women’s History Month in March is important at Sunrun. For the 2019 International Women’s Day theme, #balanceforbetter, our female executives provided excellent insights into being a working mother with a demanding job. They encouraged everyone to accept career challenges while constantly recommitting to their values, both personal and professional.
Sunrun's Black+ ERG hosted a candid conversation about being Black in Corporate America and has participated in the National Black MBA Conference and Career Fair to meet candidates seeking opportunities at Sunrun.
To celebrate Asian Pacific American Heritage Month, Sunrun partnered with Catalyst to provide a webinar featuring talent from Asian Pacific descent. Klinton Miyao, our Vice President of Legal, and inspiring speakers from other industries shared how they dealt with bias and achieved success.
100% Pay Parity
At Sunrun, we believe achieving pay parity is a significant step toward gender equality in the workplace. Sunrun became the first national solar company to achieve this milestone after committing to The White House Equal Pay Pledge in 2016. In 2018, Sunrun achieved 100% pay parity for its employees, regardless of gender, who perform similar work in similar locations across the United States.
Woman Worth Watching, Diversity Journal AwardIn 2019, Sunrun CEO Lynn Jurich was named Woman Worth Watching by Profiles in Diversity Journal.
