A Stronger Organization
We enable growth and innovation by advancing diversity, equity, and inclusion.
Living our Values and Beliefs
At OG&E, we live our core belief of valuing diversity and inclusion by embracing the uniqueness of all individuals.
Leveraging Our Diversity
Our Member Resource Groups (MRG) provide volunteer, community outreach, and leadership development opportunities for our employees, whom we call members. MRGs are employee-led, and today OG&E has groups supporting Asian American & Pacific Islander, Black, Hispanic, LGBTQ+, Veteran and Women members and allies along with new members and those dedicated to Public Service.
Partnering with Diverse Suppliers
We're spending nearly $155 million with diverse vendors in 2021, a five-fold increase since 2017.
Establishing a Diverse Industry
As sponsors of Urban League’s Urban Reentry Jobs Program, we’re helping to increase diversity in the energy industry.
Building a Diverse Workforce
We understand that diverse perspectives are far more likely to lead to creativity and innovation in the workplace; therefore, we are committed to strengthening talent pipelines for the energy industry. To accomplish this, we continue to build our community partnerships, invest in energy industry training programs, and promote job opportunities through many channels to diversify our talent pools.
The Women of OG&E
Jazmin, a Protection Engineer, joined OG&E for its culture, people, the opportunity to serve the community, and help others. She also appreciates the diversity within her team and the welcoming culture of the company. OG&E recognizes the value of diversity in driving innovation and success. By fostering a workforce that represents a wide range of perspectives and experiences, we create a more engaged and collaborative environment, which leads to better organizational outcomes.
Strengthening Supplier Diversity
Our commitment to working with suppliers from a variety of backgrounds means we’re focused on building relationships with businesses owned by minorities, women, and veterans.
