Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion




At Vistra, we want our company to work equitably for our team members, our customers, and the communities we serve. Celebrating our diversity makes dynamic teams and creates a sense of value in all employees.

Vistra recognizes the value of having a diverse and inclusive workforce. Diversity at Vistra includes all the ways we differ 鈥 such as age, gender, ethnicity, disabilities,and physical appearance, as well as underlying differences such as thoughts, styles, religions, nationality, education, and numerous other traits. Creating and maintaining an environment where differences are valued and respected enhances the company鈥檚 ability to recruit and retain the best talent in the marketplace.

At Vistra, we embrace our diverse workforce by developing an inclusive environment that welcomes our unique perspectives, builds bridges to better understand each other, and promotes fair and equitable treatment for all employees. We are forging a climate where we celebrate our diversity in all forms by treating each other with respect, listening to different viewpoints, supporting our communities, and creating a workplace where your authentic self belongs and thrives.
