A recent article shared on Dovetail Workwear’s website, shared that fortune 1000 public utility, Portland General Electric (PGE) partnered with Tyndale Enterprises, Inc. (Tyndale) and Dovetail Workwear to provide their employees with high-quality flame-resistant (FR) women's workwear. When introducing Dovetail Workwear as an option within PGE’s Tyndale managed clothing program, several women in substation operations at PGE agreed to test the new line of workwear. The partnership was driven by PGE's Senior Corporate Compliance Analyst, Lisa Corcoran, who has consistently been impressed with PGE’s dedication to the development of women in non-traditional roles. So, when tasked with leading the focus group dedicated to testing Dovetail Workwear’s line of women’s garments, she welcomed the opportunity with open arms.
Sara DeLuca, Dovetail Workwear Product Development Director and Co-founder, noted that many groups talk about diversity, equity, and inclusion but do not act on it. PGE, with a female CEO, was an exception, DeLuca said. The partnership focused on tailoring workwear to women's bodies, which is not usually the case in the industry, Corcoran noted. Rebecca, a PGE employee, said that properly fitting workwear can make a difference when you're a minority in a trade, and that it makes you feel welcome in the industry.
