The Omaha Public Power District (OPPD) is probably one of the most recognized businesses in the city. Yet, It could not always be said that it was known to be a leader in city outreach and a promoter of inclusion and change. We met up with leaders of OPPD including the CEO to see what’s changed and what winning an award for their work means to them.
Lead Diversity is more than another program, it’s proven to be a real game changer. By bringing in all levels of management together and see the “people capital” of championing diversity and inclusion for the benefit of the company, community and beyond. Taking time to visit and connect with other orgs in the city starts more levels of dialogue between new connections.
“We are making better decisions;” CEO Time Burke tells us about the program. Partnering up with the Chamber and Inclusive Communities together has shown the humanitarian outreach lead by OPPD and bringing together many partners from around the city and beyond.
Now for the future, it is guaranteed that OPPD has become a leader in city diversity and solid promoter of inclusion and change.
We want to thank Inclusive Communities for once again calling on us to help share their powerful stories and celebrate these stand outs for the year. Traveling to Inclu-City Camp and seeing the impact of volunteers like Haji on youth to OPPD doing the same with Employees in the community, and the important outreach that comes from MADVAC and Bobby Brumfield. It’s been a bright spot to see right now and we are thankful to be here again for another year!
