Western Energy Institute’s Statement on Racial Justice

At WEI we are committed to developing and maintaining an inclusive culture for all of our employees and members. Black lives matter. Racism should have no harbor in our institutions, society, or our industry. This is a time for inclusion, dialogue and reconciliation. As we bring our industry together, we have a responsibility to support critical conversations that address systemic problems, including racism, and make real progress toward meaningful change.

It is with this in mind that we will take the following actions immediately:

• Review our policies and procedures, including hiring practices.
• Engage our board on how to address diversity, equity, and inclusion in our programs.
• Provide awareness, training, and resources for WEI employees.

We welcome you to join us as we listen, learn and work together toward a better future.
