Edison International is at the forefront of the clean energy transition. Our vision is to lead the transformation of the electric power industry in a way that is safe, reliable and affordable for all our customers. While the road ahead is long, I’m proud of the meaningful progress our 13,000 team members from Edison International, SCE and Edison Energy1 made in 2021 to advance our clean energy strategy and provide value to our stakeholders.
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.

Soon, ordinary streetlights, street poles and transformers along Southern California roads will have an extraordinary role to play in the electric transportation revolution, thanks to an innovative pilot program. These standard street fixtures will soon be retrofitted with electric vehicle public charging stations.
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.
