TransAlta is actively building a company culture that fosters equality, diversity and inclusion (ED&I). As part of this commitment to ED&I, TransAlta has pledged to achieve at least 50% women on the Board of Directors and 40% women in the workforce by 2030.

TransAlta recognizes that diversity and inclusion are multifaceted issues and that they must increase awareness and tackle these subjects holistically to better engage and support all groups, including under-represented groups within the business. To do this, TransAlta commits to directly addressing the concerns and needs of the Company’s diverse employees to increase equity and belonging for all employees.

Please join us for the TransAlta Sponsor Spotlight featuring Jane Fedoretz, EVP, People, Talent and Transformation in an informative interview-style presentation.
