The strongest corporate cultures are ones where diversity is recognized, respected, supported, and celebrated. The Hunt family has always believed that diversity in background leads to diversity in thought and, when leveraged, can greatly enhance decision-making and business performance.

Inclusion and Diversity (I&D)
Hunt is committed to fostering, cultivating, and preserving a culture of diversity and inclusion. The employees of the global Hunt family of companies are the most valuable asset we have. The collective sum of the individual differences, life experiences, knowledge, innovation, self-expression, unique capabilities, and talent that our employees invest in their work represents a significant part of not only our culture, but our reputation and company’s achievement as well.
Hunt’s diversity initiatives are applicable – but not limited – to our practices and policies on recruitment and selection, compensation and benefits, professional development and training, social and recreational programs and the ongoing development of a work environment built on the premise of gender and diversity equality.
To create greater awareness on the importance of inclusion and diversity at all levels of the Company, we established an Inclusion & Diversity (I&D) Committee that leads a dialogue and corresponding actions to nurture a healthy work environment and move us forward together.
The I&D Committee aims to develop an intentional and authentic culture of inclusion, diversity, and equity that is consistent with Hunt’s Core Values and empowers our people to embrace each individual’s unique strengths and capabilities, enhance collaboration, spark innovation, and improve business performance.
Think Global - Train Local Effort
For PERU LNG, employee training has been an extremely important activity from the very beginning. Almost three years before the estimated startup date, PERU LNG organized, funded, and implemented an ambitious program to recruit and train the first team of LNG plant operators in South America. This was a firm commitment that required searching for local talent in every corner of Peru and implementing an intense training program.
Contrary to industry norms, PERU LNG decided not to recruit a team of international specialists to operate the LNG plant. Instead, it decided to engage in an unprecedented effort to train and set up a team of internationally certified Peruvian technicians to operate the plant.
Be in Good Company
A Thriving Future Workshop In October of 2021, Hunt’s Be in Good Company event kicked off with a focus on Inclusion and Diversity. Members of the Inclusion and Diversity Committee lead service opportunities with five local non-profit organizations: All Stars Project, Lullaby House, Bonton Farms, Dallas Truth, Racial Healing & Transformation, and Girls Inc. Employees had an opportunity to give back virtually and in-person to help those in need in our community.
All Stars Project
Connecting Kids to the World of Work Hunt participates in the Development School for Youth (DSY), wherein young people ages 16 to 21 learn to perform as professionals, and they partner with business leaders across the country who conduct development workshops and provide paid summer internships at their companies. Despite limitations caused by the pandemic, the Hunt Energy summer intern class of 2021 was the largest since we joined the program. Students worked in various departments across the organization and received development opportunities through our Talent Development coach, as well as mentorship from their supervisors and team members.
