Sempra Ranked No. 1 Employer for Diversity Among U.S. Utilities by DiversityInc

  • Ranked fourth in the nation among regional employers for diversity

  • Named among the Top Companies for Philanthropy by DiversityInc

Sempra has been named the top-ranked utility company in the U.S. for diversity, beating out its peers to earn the No. 1 spot on DiversityInc’s Top Utilities list for 2023. Recognized as an industry leader for its commitment to cultivating an inclusive and high-performance culture and for its dedication to advancing programs that support historically underrepresented communities, Sempra also earned spots on DiversityInc’s Top Regional Employers and Top Companies for Philanthropy lists. The rankings are based on six key areas of workplace fairness: Human capital, leadership accountability, talent development, workforce practices, supplier diversity and philanthropy.

“For 25 years, our high-performance culture has brought together employees of different backgrounds, perspectives and ideas with a shared goal of delivering energy with purpose,” said Mitch Mitchell, senior vice president of diversity and community partnerships for Sempra. “We believe that the diversity of our workforce empowers the Sempra family of companies to better serve our consumers and the communities in which we operate, while also benefitting our shareholders and other stakeholders.”

By the Numbers

Sempra is dedicated to building a high-performance culture enriched by the diverse backgrounds and lived experiences of its employees. In 2022, people of color made up nearly 60% of the U.S.-based workforce and women represented 34% of leadership across the Sempra family of companies. The company also consistently provides opportunities to promote diversity and inclusion among its employees through direct engagement, employee resource groups and enterprise-wide events covering topics such as allyship in action and mental health awareness.

Sempra’s diverse and inclusive environment also extends to the communities it serves. In 2022, the company provided $40 million in community giving through the Sempra family of companies and the Sempra Foundation. Additionally, Sempra’s California and Texas utilities in 2022 purchased more than $2.4 billion in goods and services from businesses owned by women, minorities, service-disabled veterans and members of the LGBTQ+ community, representing about 30% of total supplier spend.
