Inclusion and Diversity

To build a better tomorrow for everyone, we have created a culture that embraces inclusion and diversity and encourages collaboration.

In 2020, we are challenged by world events, including racial injustices. At ONE Gas, we stand AGAINST inequity and injustice. We also believe, that to find solutions, we must stand FOR something.

At ONE Gas, we stand FOR inclusion and diversity. We stand FOR equality. We stand FOR the value and voice of every employee. We stand FOR listening to understand and learning from what we hear. As a leader in our industry and the communities we serve, we are committed to listening, learning and leading.

As part of our commitment, our Inclusion and Diversity (I&D) Council is chaired by our CEO and includes five permanent members and 14 rotating members who serve two-year terms. The Council provides governance and guidance for implementing our I&D strategy and sharing our vision of an inclusive and diverse workforce.

To promote a diverse workforce, we take active steps including monitoring and training. We regularly monitor the diversity of our workforce across roles and seniority levels. We have instituted a Managing Bias course that provides unconscious bias training to all employees.

Our voluntary, Employee-led Resource Groups (ERGs) are based on shared characteristics, interests or like experiences. ERGs support our corporate strategy through one or more of the following focus areas:

  • › Attraction, recruitment and retention of employees
  • › Education and information for employees
  • › Professional and leadership development for members
  • › Community involvement and customer engagement
