Oklahoma State University has been named among the region’s  2017 Top Inclusive Workplace Cultures based on a survey by Mosaic, the Tulsa Regional Chamber of Commerce’s diversity business council.    

OSU was ranked among the top tier of employers receiving the Five-Star Inclusive Workplace Award for its programs that strengthen diversity and inclusion in the workplace.  

“OSU is honored to again be recognized with this award as an inclusive workplace,” said Jason Kirksey, vice president and chief diversity officer for the OSU Division of Institutional Diversity. “While there is work to do, the university is committed to enrich and fortify its efforts to promote a culture of inclusion within the campus community.” 

Jeromie Tucker, associate director of development for the OSU Foundation, accepted this year’s award from Mosaic officials during the council’s annual Economic Inclusion Forum held recently at the BOK Center in Tulsa. 

OSU was among 24 five-star recipients this year, which also included 5 four-star winners, and 14 three-star recipients. Twelve companies were designated as “rising stars,” meaning they’re demonstrating an increased commitment to diversity and inclusion but in need of additional work in certain areas.  

The primary focus of Mosaic is to create awareness about the competitive advantage of having a diverse and inclusive business climate in the region. For more information, go to or phone (918) 560-0276.
