AAON Named an Oklahoma “W” Company
AAON, Inc. (NASDAQ: AAON) a leading manufacturer of heating and
cooling products, announced that it has been recognized by 2020
Women on Boards as an Oklahoma “W” Company for having 20% or more
company board seats held by women. AAON’s 8-member board of
directors includes 2 women, or 25%.
2020 Women on Boards is a non-profit campaign
committed to increasing the percentage of women on U.S. company
boards to 20% or greater by the year 2020. According to 2020 Women
on Boards, just over a third of the Oklahoma-based companies on the
Russell 3000 list are at 20% or greater women directors. Numerous
independent research studies have shown that public corporations
with women on their company boards out-perform boards with men
only, as measured by profitability, productivity and workforce
engagement. Having women on company boards is a step toward
gaining, regaining or maintaining a positive workplace for women.
When women directors serve on company boards, women employees look
up to them as role models, reinforcing that the company values and
recognizes the contributions of women at all levels.
“A diverse and inclusive workplace is integral
to our business strategy and critical to our continued success.
From our leadership team to our team members working on the
manufacturing floor, we are committed to hiring, retaining and
promoting a diverse workforce while advancing a culture of
inclusion in in which each team member is valued for their ideas,
identities, experiences and talents,” said Gary Fields, President
and Director of AAON.
