Diversity & Inclusion

At TVA, we are powered by people—and we are enriched by the diversity of a talented, highly skilled workforce made up of people from every sort of background. We draw strength from diversity, and cultivate an atmosphere of active inclusion.

We know you bring more than skills; you bring experiences and perspectives. We are committed to including individuals from every race, color, national origin, ethnicity, gender, ability/disability, sexual orientation, religion, age and personality. We know that differences make us stronger.

Each and every day we are responsible for making life better in the Valley. We do that by ensuring that all qualified candidates receive consideration for open jobs at TVA—and by ensuring all employees are encouraged, engaged and empowered to contribute 100 percent of their talents, 100 percent of the time as they continue to build on our legacy of service.

If you are involved with a diversity recruiting organization and have ideas about how we can extend our outreach, we want to hear from you. Email us at careers@tva.com or call us at (866) 620-8010.
