Our first #HumansofthePartnership spotlight is resource director Lydia Van Sant! Get to know her: How do you define success? Success is loving what you do every day and appreciating what you have. A professor once gave me very valuable career advice: when choosing a career, think about how you want to spend each day. For me, that means problem-solving and constantly learning and being challenged. What does diversity and inclusion mean to you? In my work on staffing, I strongly believe in putting together teams with diversity of thought. Some of the most helpful ideas I’ve received were from staff who work on completely different issues, and I believe that teams discover the strongest solutions when their members represent a variety of perspectives and opinions.

Thanks again, @rPublicService, for giving us the keys to your Instagram account so we could show everyone how #FERC is #AlwaysOn! #FERC #FedBPTW
#FERCFacts: #FERC is composed of up to five commissioners who are appointed by the President of the United States with the advice and consent of the Senate. Commissioners serve five-year terms, and have equal votes on regulatory matters. Commission meetings are on the third Thursday of every month. Follow along with our free live webcast: http://ferc.capitolconnection.org/ #AlwaysOn #FedBPTW
#FERC’s Office of General Counsel is a top performer in the Best Places to Work rankings among federal agency offices, and was honored in 2018 as one of two top agency subcomponents across the entire federal government. OGC is #AlwaysOn to provide sound and timely counsel and legal services to the Commission and staff. It also works to collaborate with program offices on the development of Commission draft orders, rulemakings and other decisions; advises the Commission and staff on legal matters; represents the Commission before the courts; reviews proposed legislation; prepares Congressional testimony; and advises other government agencies, regulated entities and the public on matters within the Commission's jurisdiction. #FedBPTW
The #FERC Office of the Secretary is the official portal through which FERC records all legal filings and notices related to Commission actions. Its officers are #AlwaysOn, often into the evening, to promulgate and publish all orders, rules and regulations of the Commission record and to preserve the records of all official actions taken by vote of the Commissioners. The Secretary has exclusive authority to issue all official Commission actions. #FedBPTW
#FERC offers work- and career-supporting opportunities through eight Employee Resource Groups. These are voluntary and employee-driven, and focus on applying interests and perspectives to initiatives that create value for FERC. They are #AlwaysOn to provide a critical link between employees and senior management, connecting backgrounds, beliefs, and experiences to FERC management, human capital staff and key decision makers. The Women emPOWERing Women group recently invited Commissioner Bernard L. McNamee to share his perspectives and insights. #FedBPTW #WorkatFERC
#FERC is #AlwaysOn in supporting public trust and understanding of its activities by promoting transparency and communication, ensuring that the public has timely access to accurate information about the Commission’s activities. We do this in many ways, including communications and meetings with state and federal stakeholders and interest groups, regulated entities, Congress, the media and the public. Commissioner Rich Glick gets ready to record the FERC Open Access podcast to discuss important issues facing the Commission. #FedBPTW
