Diversity and inclusion are critical attributes of one of EnLink’s core values – Focus On People. EnLink strives to embrace, celebrate, and support the diversity of our employees and the unique perspectives and experiences each of us brings to the EnLink table. We promote diversity and inclusion through our hiring and promotion practices, overall pay practices, community outreach efforts, and through employee education and training on diversity topics.
In mid-2020, we launched the Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) Action Team. This team is led by Chairman and CEO Barry Davis and Executive Vice President and Chief Legal and Administrative Officer Alaina Brooks, who, in 2020, was named one of the "Top 50 Most Powerful Women in Oil & Gas" by the National Diversity Council, and includes employees from across the company, each representing numerous demographics and perspectives.
The objectives of the DEI Action Team are to:
- Foster a supportive and celebratory work environment in which all employees can realize their maximum potential at EnLink, regardless of their differences
- Promote a diverse workplace encompassing differences in ethnicity and backgrounds, thinking styles, experiences, and education
- Encourage and support the diverse communities where we operate
The DEI Action Team launched numerous educational campaigns in 2020, added inclusivity topics into our recruitment hiring guidelines, conducted a companywide diversity survey, and launched fundraising drives. EnLink employees donated over 3,000 pantry goods to Magnificat Houses, a Houston-based nonprofit that services homeless individuals from various diverse populations, and donated over 500 tech devices, such as laptops, monitors, and phones, to nonprofit Computers for the Blind, which services visually impaired individuals. On the education side, the DEI Action Team highlighted diversity topics through educational stories and testimonials posted to the company intranet site. Stories highlighted EnLink’s military veterans, the Diwali celebration, the importance of voting, books and movie recommendation lists to learn about diverse cultures, and more.
Diversity Hiring and Employee Training
EnLink is an equal opportunity employer that recruits, hires, trains, and promotes individuals in all job classifications without regard to race, color, religion, sex, national origin, disability, veteran status, or any other legally protected status. In 2020, EnLink enhanced our recruitment process to include inclusivity questions that identify if potential candidates embrace and celebrate diversity.
At EnLink, all employees are required to take an online “Preventing Workplace Harassment” course each year. In 2020, EnLink also offered “Unconscious Bias Training” to all employees, resulting in 97% of managers completing the course.
In 2021, EnLink will continue to require all employees to take an anti-harassment training course and will require managers to take an additional diversity-and-inclusion-focused course.
