Our Commitment to Diversity and Inclusion

Diverse is Who We Are

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.

Workforce Diversity: Statistics

Our 13,600+ employees are a highly diverse group, and everyone’s first days on the job here include our diversity training. Here’s a glimpse into our employee makeup in 2014:

  • 56% of our employees were minorities
  • 53% of the new hires were minorities
  • 46% of our elected officers were minorities or women

Cultural Awareness & Outreach

Our Employee Resources Groups are employee-led, voluntary organizations that help promote cultural awareness in the workplace — and help us reach out in the diverse communities where our employees live and work.


Meeting Needs in Diverse Communities

We gave nearly $20 million in philanthropic giving in 2014. More than two-thirds went to programs benefitting diverse and underserved groups.
