Diversity at Orange & Rockland

Orange & Rockland Employee Diversity

The power of our company is in the 1,123 women and men who make up Orange & Rockland. Our employees reflect the diversity of the communities we serve.

Of 1,123 total O&R employees, 19.4 percent are minorities and 24.9 percent are women.

Developing Diverse Suppliers

In order to develop a pipeline of competitive minority- and women-owned businesses, we have worked with local community groups as well as local and national trade associations, including the Orange County Chamber of Commerce.

Employee Groups

Helping Parents Find Balance

Moms On It helps members find better work-life balance. The group connects parents to build strong family relationships, discuss effective parenting strategies, prepare for the birth or adoption of a child, and help transition back to work after a maternity leave.

Multicultural Advisory Committee

Orange & Rockland's multicultural advisory committee works with Human Resources on several diversity and inclusion initiatives. Focused on creating an environment that fosters engagement and inclusion, employees have participated in events for Black History Month, women in nontraditional jobs, LGBT employees, celebrating our veterans, and a seminar on cognitive diversity, to name a few.

Recruiting More Women

Orange & Rockland has worked to increase the number of women in nontraditional jobs by continuing its partnership with the Society of Women Engineers. We attend the Society’s annual conference, and recruit members at the Society’s career center.
