Our broad presence in Central and Southern California brings us opportunities to make large-scale impacts in our communities.
With over 135 years of history, Edison International knows that communities aren’t external to our business—they’re integral to it. Achieving our DEI goals requires collaboration with a range of partners, including suppliers and community organizations that operate on the front lines of societal change.
We make ongoing efforts to attract and retain a diverse employee population of highly talented individuals that represents the communities we serve and help advance. We realize that recruiting diverse workers has tangible benefits tied to performance, innovation and productivity.
We want all team members to be energized at work through feelings of physical and psychological safety and empowerment. We have made progress in increasing diverse representation, and today we’re adding to that foundation with a focus on building a more inclusive and equitable culture for all.
We view DEI as part of a broader, companywide cultural effort. In 2019, we created the Culture Congress, a cross-departmental, cross-functional group of employees who advance key areas of cultural improvement, including DEI.
We are committed to an inclusive workplace that empowers diverse talent and leverages our diversity to achieve our business goals.
Our Diverse Workforce
We’re a team that celebrates our differences and is proud to serve one of the most diverse regions in the country. We believe it’s critical to have a workforce that represents the customers and communities we serve, and their broad diversity.
Our diverse talent strategies focus on increasing inclusion, career advancement and leadership opportunities.
Recent Pulse survey results, measuring employee sentiment, indicate that employees continue to feel we can do more to provide meaningful growth and development opportunities. We’re addressing this element of job satisfaction through new programs— such as our Talent Development Accelerator, Job Shadowing, Peer-to-Peer Learning and Career Counseling Programs—as we look for new ways to provide a culture that fosters professional and personal growth and well-being.
Edison volunteers join a cleanup effort at the popular hiking spot to help reduce the threat of wildfires from trash and illegal fire rings.
On an overcast, late spring Saturday, a group of Southern California Edison and Edison International employees began a trek into Los Padres National Forest in Ojai, California. The burnt trunks of oak trees lined the trailhead, reminders of a wildfire that swept through the surrounding community.
Our efforts to advance DEI throughout Edison International and the communities we serve are guided by 10 commitments, which we established in 2020. In 2021 we implemented each of the 10 commitments, most of which initially focused on our Black colleagues and community.
Edison International's commitment to DEI is longstanding. DEI is integral to our company values, and we know that when we integrate DEI across our business we are best-positioned to accelerate a clean energy future.
Edison International examines the costs of inaction, the need to modernize critical infrastructure and the significance of collaboration among stakeholders
ROSEMEAD, Calif., May 19, 2022 /3BL Media/ — California must act with more urgency to address the continuing effects of climate change because the cost of inaction is far greater than the cost of action. That is according to Adapting for Tomorrow: Powering a Resilient Future, a new white paper from Edison International.
