2021 Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Report
SOURCE: Edison International
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.
In recent years, we have made progress in increasing diverse representation at the Board level, in executive leadership and among our total employee population. We are especially proud to be among those companies in the Fortune 500 that report LGBTQ+ representation at the Board level. Since 2017, we have increased the percent of women in our executive leadership by 10% and are well on our way to achieving our goal of gender parity by 2030.
However, diversity is only effective if it is coupled with inclusion. While we have made strides, we recognize we have more to do to create an even more equitable and inclusive workplace. Using data insights as well as observations gleaned through candid, facilitated conversations with employees, we have worked to continuously improve in building and maintaining a psychologically safe work environment where all our team members can thrive.
To remain transparent and accountable, we share one of the most comprehensive sets of DEI data in our industry, including detailed data on our workforce, suppliers and community investments.
Integrating DEI across Edison International
At Edison International, DEI is everyone’s job. It comes to life at Edison International, SCE and Edison Energy* through teamwork across all levels. For example:
- Each SCE OU has a culture team comprised of employees dedicated to advancing DEI, our company values, safety and wellness within their organizations and across the company
- Edison Energy's* DEI Task Force is divided into subgroups with team leads, executive sponsors and dedicated contributors to handle DEI communications, employee engagement, education and initiatives
Additionally, we believe it is important to fully integrate DEI into our business with a C-suite executive who has the ultimate authority and responsibility to continue the progress we’ve made in pay, access, advancement and environment (PAAE). Our SVP, Human Resources has executive responsibility for DEI. Our dedicated corporate DEI team provides thought leadership and crosscompany collaboration in the development, leadership and execution of strategies, programs, tools and processes to build and sustain a culture of equity, inclusion and belonging at Edison International.
Edison International’s Board of Directors oversees initiatives to expand diversity throughout our organization. The Board reviews the company’s DEI progress semiannually, and monitors our commitments, metrics and trends related to workforce representation, pay equity, advancement opportunities and employee sentiment. Prior to the release of our annual DEI report, the Board provides guidance to management and subsequently reviews actions taken, feedback received and progress on the company’s initiatives to enhance transparency and accountability.
