Supporting the Diverse Communities Around Us


In 2013, we gave $19.7 million to 2,400 nonprofits across central, coastal, and Southern California and 85% went to support programs benefitting underserved communities and groups. We look for opportunities that demonstrate a strong commitment to diversity and meeting the needs of underserved communities.


Participating in the California Utility Diversity Council

As an active member of the California Utility Diversity Council, we are dedicated to its vision and goals. The Council brings together the CPUC, businesses, and regulated California utilities including cable, electricity, gas, telecommunications, and water.

Our Consumer Advisory Panel

Initiated in November 1998, the SCE Consumer Advisory Panel (CAP) was formed to bring greater awareness and clarity to consumer issues of interest to Southern California Edison and Edison International; to broaden and sharpen company understanding of consumer issues and consider new ideas: and, equally important, to examine new and effective ways to strengthen the company’s capacity to respond to the challenges of serving its customers. There are 18 members who regularly meet with our senior leaders, including 13 women and 14 minorities.
