Black Equal Opportunity Employment Journal has recognized ORAU as one of its top diversity employers for 2015.
The magazine is a compendium of career and employment opportunity information for African-Americans, other minority groups, and women, a press release said.
As part of the magazine’s “Best of the Best 2015” series, Black EOE Journal annually polls hundreds of companies to assess and disclose the companies who show excellence in diversity in areas such as: government and law enforcement agencies; insurance, finance and banking companies; utilities, energy, gas, and oil companies; STEM employers; and healthcare, pharmaceutical, and biotech companies.
“ORAU embraces diversity and equality in the workplace and is honored to receive recognition for excellence in diversity,” said Mae Mosley, ORAU’s director of employee relations and diversity. “We pride ourselves on maintaining a prejudice-free environment that welcomes all people, identities, and cultures.”
In addition to embracing a culture of diversity in the workplace, the press release said, ORAU also strives to achieve significant minority and female participation in the administration of hundreds of science education and workforce development programs.
The company also sponsors a 28-member Historically Black Colleges and Universities/Minority Education Institutions Council that serves to increase minority participation in research opportunities for science and technology.
