Investing in Our Communities

As we seek to operate in a socially responsible way, part of that is supporting and strengthening safe and educated communities in areas where we operate. Our social investments target STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) education, public safety, social services and community vibrancy. Through volunteerism, Devon employees also contribute to the fight against hunger, advancing education and other activities to deliver necessities and enrichment opportunities to our neighbors.

Before we take action, Devon engages with our stakeholders to understand their concerns, assess their needs and determine the most effective way we can help. Our engagements are guided by our commitment to work with integrity, earn trust and be accountable for our actions and results.

Vice President, Strategic Planning

When you combine a petroleum engineer and a Girl Scout, you get someone who knows the importance of learning about STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) subjects as early as possible. At Devon, that’s Catherine, a local Girl Scouts board member since 2014. “I want to create more opportunities for girls in STEM fields. A key age group is fifth graders; if we don’t reach them by that point, they’re unlikely to become interested.”
