NATION, Native American Tribes Interacting, Observing and Networking, an AEP Employee Resource Group, recently hosted a luncheon and guided tour of the OPEN BORDERS Pueblo Painting Exhibit at Columbus Museum of Art (CMOA).

“We value culture, connections and networking that celebrate diversity and make us all stronger as a result,” said Wade Smith, SVP Grid Development, AEP Transmission, and Executive Co-Sponsor of NATION. Smith also is a member of the CMOA board.

“I feel fortunate to work for a company that allows us the opportunity to learn more about and share our culture and I am so thankful to be here,” said Joyce Roberts, co-chair of NATION and a call center system administrator senior for Public Service Company of Oklahoma in Tulsa.

The Native American Employee Resource Group brings together employees who have an interest in Native American Culture. The goal of the NAERG is to educate, inform and create a greater awareness among AEP employees, customers and the general public about Native American culture, beliefs and values. It also provides a forum to increase business skills through volunteer community outreach.
