Duquesne Light Company Supervisor Receives 'Women of Excellence' Award

Sheila Glover, supervisor of meter shops and testing at Duquesne Light Company (DLC), was honored as one of the New Pittsburgh Courier’s 2023 Women of Excellence at a ceremony on Friday, Dec. 8.

The Courier is the third-largest newspaper in Pittsburgh that publishes weekly while focusing on events affecting the lives of Pittsburgh’s African American community.

“The New Pittsburgh Courier’s Women of Excellence awards recognize local African American women who inspire others through their vision of leadership, exceptional achievements and participation in community service,” said Rod Doss, editor and publisher at the Courier. “They are women who exemplify extraordinary stature, poise and integrity. These women influence those around them to go beyond the norm and strive for greatness.”

This year’s class included 50 honorees.

Glover, who has been a DLC employee for more than 40 years, leads a team focused on ensuring that utility meters work properly and are deployed safely and efficiently for the company’s 600,000 customers. Prior to this role, she worked at one of DLC’s former generation facilities in various capacities. She’s actively involved in volunteering with colleagues through the United Way of Southwestern Pennsylvania and other local nonprofits and is a member of DLC’s Business Employee Resource Groups, one focused on Black and African American employees, and the other on employees who identify as women.

Glover earned her bachelor’s degree in Business from Point Park University, graduating magna cum laude.

“Receiving this award is very humbling. Furthermore, it is always nice to know you are appreciated,” said Glover. “My goal as a professional is to leave the Meter Shop better than when I found it. My goals outside of work are to lead by example and be a role model for my two nieces.”

Outside of work, Glover is an advocate for helping the community, especially children who she believes are the future. She is a member of the Christian Mother’s Ladies Guild and participates in various activities at her local church where she has been a member for 53 years. In her spare time, Glover enjoys reading, history, geology and traveling. ​

As a proud Pittsburgher, she resides in the East End of Pittsburgh, living on the same street she grew up on more than 50 years ago.
