Diversity is an integral part of who we are and how we operate. Our employees reflect the rich diversity of central and Southern California, and we play an active role within the diverse communities around us. At SCE, we believe diversity is about capitalizing on the strengths of everyone, empowering people, and promoting the human spirit.
Our SCE workforce of 13,100+ employees clearly reflects the rich diversity of Southern California, and everyone’s first few days on the job include diversity training. Here’s a glimpse into the makeup of our employees as of June 30, 2020:
- 61% of our employees were ethnically diverse
- 45% of our officers were diverse in terms of ethnicity and gender
Note: This data excludes interns, contingent workers, and those on leave.
Leading and participating in Business Resource Groups (BRGs) and Employee Resource Groups (ERGs) are important ways for employees to create a sense of community, develop professionally, and engage with one another and company leadership. As the cornerstone of our diverse and inclusive culture, our BRGs and ERGs have been active for more than 40 years, and today Edison International supports 12 BRGs and ERGs and their members. The groups represent employees from a range of cultures, ethnic groups, and sexual orientations, as well as important business issues such as safety and environmental stewardship.
