ODOE’s vision is a safe, equitable, clean, and sustainable future. As part of this
vision, we are committed to ensuring that all communities can participate in
and benefit from a sustainable energy future – from access to electric vehicles
and renewable energy to initiatives that support equity and keep energy affordable.
Improving access and
developing policy through an equity lens is always a work in progress, and our
success in these efforts is bolstered by tapping into the talents of a diverse workforce and stakeholder community
. This involves building an inclusive and
diverse agency, reflective of the Oregonians we serve.
We’ll continue to promote equal opportunities to all people regardless of race, color,
ancestry, gender identity, marital status, national origin, age, political or
religious affiliation, sexual orientation, mental or physical disability, veteran status, and any other
protected class for which discrimination is prohibited by state or federal law.
