Energizing Our Future
Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DE&I) is at the heart of all we do at SoCalGas and we know our company's success is dependent on our employees and communities flourishing.
Living By Our Values
At SoCalGas, we live by three values:
- Do the right thing
- Champion people
- Shape the future
These values permeate our company culture. They guide how we think and drive our actions. As one of America's largest energy providers, our values are the lens through which we see every opportunity and challenge.
Aligned with these values, we aim to increase diversity, equity, and inclusion in the workplace and in our communities to achieve measurable social impact. This work is part of our ASPIRE 2045 strategy focused on five sustainability areas where we can create a strong positive difference for all. We are honored to be recognized by corporate and industry awards. Visit the Sempra Awards page to see an updated list.
Equity Action Plan
Born from an internal call-to-action in response to the protests and civil unrest of 2020, the company held community conversations to hear employees' voices and come together in unity. As part of our strategic DE&I approach, we’ve developed vital diversity-related goals that focus on the company’s efforts to create positive, sustained change for our people and the communities we serve. We’re excited to leverage our communities and workforce’s accumulated knowledge and bold ideas. The plan drives specific commitments and goals in 5 key areas:
- Leading from the Top
- Accelerating Engagement
- Creating Opportunities
- Driving Conscious Inclusion
- Partnering with Communities
Our more than 8,000 employees mirror the diversity of the 21.8 million customers in more than 500 Californian communities we serve. Our leadership welcomes new candidates who provide key skills and diverse perspectives.
Purchasing & Supplier Diversity
Working with culturally and ethnically diverse business owners is an integral part of our corporate strategy and benefits our suppliers and local community.
Our charitable investments and partnerships help create safe, healthy, and thriving communities through our giving pillars, focused on: safety, sustainability, and social justice. We strive to provide economic opportunities among underserved communities of concern.
We pride ourselves in hiring the best and brightest talent and we want to create opportunities for all employees to thrive. The DE&I department offers several ways for our employees to be involved and stay connected:
- Employee Resource Groups
- Community Conversations
- DE&I Dialogues
- Diversity & Inclusion Mentoring Program
- Annual Diversity & Inclusion Summit
- Inclusion Book Club
"At SoCalGas, DE&I is engrained in our company culture. As a people leader and ally, I pride myself in working for a company that takes action to understand and embrace differences, evaluates how we can work better together and empowers others to show up authentically."
"After 30+ years with the company, I know instituting change or adapting to a changing environment can be difficult. SoCalGas leadership demonstrates a propensity to listen to employees on important issues, establishes frameworks for understanding various perspectives, and adopts courses of action that consider the diversity that exists across the organization."
"When a company as large as SoCalGas is comprised of diverse individuals at all levels of leadership, openly discusses social justice issues and solutions, and provides a safe work environment where all employees feel comfortable bringing their whole selves to work, you know that this is a company that truly values and prioritizes Diversity, Equity and Inclusion."
