DEI Coalition

Learn about the OR-MEP Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Coalition

OR-MEP is committed to equitably serving the people of Oregon and disrupting systems that maintain inequality, within the energy industry and beyond. The OR-MEP DEI Coalition will recommend and influence changes to the OR-MEP program to make it more accessible to all, especially customers with the greatest need who have not benefitted from the program.

Coalition members represent diverse backgrounds and experiences, including:

  • Affordable Housing Property Manager or Owner

  • Resident/Community Member

  • Community-Based Organization Representative

  • Community or Public Health Worker

  • Affordable Housing Finance Specialist

  • Workforce Development Specialist

  • Energy Industry Professional

OR-MEP is not currently recruiting members for the DEI Coalition, but you can find more information about the application and selection process on our “How to Get Involved” page.
