HOUSTON, July 24, 2018 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Experience Energy, the global careers platform that connects energy companies with diverse talent, today announced the launch of the Energy Diversity & Inclusion Index™. The survey is a first in the industry and will look beyond the state of inclusion of all genders, races, ethnicities, sexual orientations and ages.

The results will be announced live Oct. 3 at the Experience Energy GRIT Awards at a ceremony held in Houston and broadcast live online.

Experience Energy, a Pink Petro company, created the survey to fill a void. While there are many organizations that highlight the lack of gender diversity, there is no effort to examine culture and how energy companies that operate in this space are supporting — or not supporting — employees from all walks of life.

"Pink Petro began as an effort to end the gender gap in energy. As we've grown the company to include Experience Energy, we know that inclusion of the full workforce will drive us forward. But to move forward, we have to understand where we are now. The Energy Diversity & Inclusion Index™ aims to do just that," Katie Mehnert, founder and CEO of Pink Petro and Experience Energy, said in a statement.

The Energy Diversity & Inclusion Index™ was created with the help tools made available by SurveyMonkey and research from Stanford University. The responses are anonymous. The questions cover those aspects of culture and inclusion that are hard to quantify: a sense of belonging, career progression, the ability to voice opinions, being valued, and fairness — in promotions, compensation and feedback.

"The Energy Diversity & Inclusion Index™ goes deeper to look at what makes a culture truly inclusive in the energy sector globally," Mehnert said. "What gets measured gets changed, so we're going to start measuring."
