OUR COMMITMENT TO DIVERSITY & INCLUSION
International Women’s Day March 8, 2023
On March 8th, Cooper held its 2nd annual International Women’s Day event at corporate headquarters in Houston, Texas. The open panel discussion, focused on gender equity, included female leaders from across the industry and female Cooper employees. Panelists and speakers for the in-person event included:
Kim Richardson, Kinder Morgan, Inc – Vice President, Procurement
Erin Toomey, Foley & Lardner LLP – Partner
Arquella Hargrove, Alchemy Consulting Group – Chief Culture Officer
CEO Pledge for Diversity, inclusion,
Critical to the success of Cooper is bringing together employees with diverse opinions, backgrounds, cultures, and perspectives and ensuring an inclusive environment which embraces these differences. To do this, we need to address relevant concerns and needs for our diverse employees and to increase equity at every level of our organization.
As CEO, to ensure Cooper is taking steps to further diversity, inclusion, and performance within the organizations, I pledge to:
empowering our employees
We believe that empowered employees are more loyal and committed and deliver better safety and customer service, so we give our people the tools and resources they need to successfully manage their projects and drive their own careers. Cooper offers on-the-job learning and training for both hard and soft skills.
We make every effort to offer equality of opportunity and hire the most highly skilled and qualified people for our open positions. Anything less, and our safety and performance for the customer is compromised.
Every employee has stop-work authority; if anyone sees any reason that a situation might not be safe, they have authority to stop the work until the risk is addressed.
Cooper Machinery Services prohibits harassment of any kind, including sexual harassment, discrimination, and unequal treatment of individuals based on but not limited to age, race, national or ethnic origin, disability, veteran, marital status, pregnancy, religion, sexual orientation, or any other characteristic protected by law.
