(Oakville, ON) February 16, 2018 – Oakville Enterprises (OEC) demonstrated its commitment to gender diversity with Rob Lister, President and CEO, signing the Canadian Electricity Industry Leadership Accord on Gender Diversity (the Accord).

It provides a sector-specific platform to create a culture of equality and inclusion throughout the workforce and at all levels, while facilitating greater opportunities for women in traditionally male dominated positions.
“I’m proud to sign the Accord and believe gender diversity is a cornerstone for business success,” said Lister. “Diversity will advance our strategy with depth and perspective, creating a higher performing work environment for everyone. This Accord complements the initiatives we’ve already begun, and it’s a privilege to be a part of it.”
