Sempra has been recognized as the most diverse utility firm in the United States, topping its competitors to claim the top spot on DiversityInc‘s list of the Top Utilities for 2023. Sempra was named a Top Regional Employer and Top Company for Philanthropy by DiversityInc. The company is known as an industry leader for its dedication to fostering an inclusive and high-performance culture and for advancing initiatives that support historically underrepresented communities. Human capital, leadership responsibility, talent development, worker practices, supplier diversity, and charity are the six main components of workplace fairness that are used to determine rankings.
According to Mitch Mitchell, senior vice president of diversity and community relations at Sempra, “For 25 years, our high-performance culture has brought together employees from different backgrounds, perspectives, and ideas with a shared goal of delivering energy with purpose. In our opinion, the Sempra family of enterprises is better able to serve its customers and the communities in which it operates thanks to the diversity of its personnel, which also benefits our shareholders and other stakeholders.”
From the Data
Sempra is committed to establishing a high-performance culture that is enhanced by the varied upbringings and life experiences of its staff. In 2022, women made up 34% of the senior positions across the Sempra family of firms, and people of color made up approximately 60% of the workforce in the United States. Through direct involvement, employee resource groups, and company-wide events covering subjects like allyship in action and mental health awareness, the organization regularly offers chances to encourage diversity and inclusion among its employees.
The communities that Sempra serves are also a part of the company’s diversified and welcoming atmosphere. Through the Sempra family of firms and the Sempra Foundation, the company donated $40 million to the community in 2022. In addition, Sempra’s California and Texas utilities spent more than $2.4 billion in 2022 on products and services from companies owned by women, minorities, veterans with disabilities, and LGBTQ+ people, accounting for roughly 30% of all supplier spending.
