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
Strengthening Networks
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, Indigenous, LGBTQ+, Veteran and Women members and allies along with new members and those dedicated to public service.
Partnering with Diverse Suppliers
In 2023, we spent nearly $165 million with small and diverse vendors, of which 50% were Oklahoma and Arkansas-based businesses.
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.

Empowering Women in Energy
At OG&E, we acknowledge the significant contributions of many influential women in our industry, including the trailblazers within our own company. Hear from Jazmin, one of our Senior System Protection Engineers, as she shares her experience in energy and the important role diversity plays in shaping OG&E’s culture and energizing life for the community.

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.
