Texas first lady Cecilia Abbott, honorary chair of the 2021 Governor’s Volunteer Awards, announced this week that Diamondback Energy has received the Governor’s Corporate Volunteering Champion Award.

The award recognizes private-sector corporations and small businesses for implementing employee volunteer programs that have demonstrable community impact and set community service as a core value and business strategy, according to a press release.

“Diamondback Energy, Inc. understands the importance of building a culture of giving back and has channeled this into support for local public schools,” according to a news release about the award. “With the Permian Basin’s growing population of English as Second Language learners, the company encourages employees as well as other local groups to get involved and has implemented literacy and STEM programs at school campuses and other youth nonprofits. In addition, Diamondback Energy leaders and employees are encouraged to actively serve on boards that support the work of educating students, providing adequate facilities, technology and safety for public schools and building up the local workforce. In addition to their support of education, the Diamondback Energy team also assists local nonprofit Keep Midland Beautiful with efforts to keep the city growing and green. Since the start of 2020, the company has contributed about 430 hours of service and over $5.2 million to the Permian Basin community.”
The Corporate Volunteering Champion Award is part of the 38th annual Governor’s Volunteer Awards. These awards, presented in conjunction with OneStar Foundation, honor the exemplary service of individuals and organizations that have made a significant measurable contribution to Texas communities in the past year. 
Diamondback Energy will be honored alongside other Governor’s Volunteer Awardees on Nov. 3 during an online awards ceremony.
