Diversity & Inclusion is Our Business
Diversity and inclusion have been core values at Sempra for decades. Empowering our employees to be their whole selves at work is our competitive advantage. This is where new ideas come from and meaningful collaboration gets an authentic start. By bringing together people with different perspectives, diverse backgrounds and real commitment to their own individuality, we have built a stronger business.
Our focus on diversity also extends to our suppliers. We believe in sourcing goods and services from diverse businesses and have consistently exceeded our own goals as well as those set by the California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC).
We also support supplier diversity with programs designed to help these companies grow, such as technical assistance, business boot camps and educational series. By bringing together employees and suppliers with unique perspectives and different approaches, our diversity efforts are driving exceptional business performance.
For the 10th consecutive year, Sempra was named to DiversityInc’s “Top Utilities” list, which recognizes companies for their practices related to hiring, retaining, and promoting women, minorities, people with disabilities, LGBTQ+ and veterans.
Employee Diversity & Inclusion Councils
Company-wide and Local Diversity & Inclusion Councils are employee-led groups that help us foster a respectful and inclusive workplace on a grassroots, individual-to-individual level.

We invite dedicated individuals to act as Diversity & Inclusion Ambassadors within the organization. These diversity advocates help train their peers and make sure all of our teams understand how to respect differences so they can better connect and perform on a daily basis.

By partnering employees with organizational leaders through our M-Power diversity and inclusion mentorship program, we help team members grow and develop with outstanding guidance.

From our annual Diversity & Inclusion Summit to locally led topical meetings, we give these important topics the spotlight.
Veteran Support Programs
Through our veteran support programs, our teams focus on new ways to recruit, engage and support our team members transitioning from military to civilian life.
