Sempra Energy today was named to the 2019 Bloomberg Gender-Equality Index, which distinguishes companies committed to transparency in gender reporting and advancing women’s equality.
“We’re a stronger company because of our diversity and inclusion,” said G. Joyce Rowland, senior vice president and chief culture officer for Sempra Energy. “The different perspectives and backgrounds of our employees, management team and board enable better decision-making as we strive to become North America’s premier energy infrastructure company.”
Sempra Energy was one of 14 utilities and a total of 230 companies recognized on the Bloomberg Gender-Equality Index. This year, the index included companies from 10 sectors headquartered across 36 countries and regions.
Sempra Energy scored higher than the utility sector average in the areas of community engagement and gender employer statistics.
“We applaud Sempra Energy and the other 229 firms tracked by the index for their action to measure gender equality through the Bloomberg Gender-Equality Index framework,” said Peter T. Grauer, chairman of Bloomberg and founding chairman of the U.S. 30% Club. “Sempra Energy’s Gender-Equality Index inclusion is a strong indicator to its employees, investors and industry peers alike that it is leading by example to advance ongoing efforts for a truly inclusive workplace.”
The Bloomberg index measures gender equality using a standardized reporting framework which offers public companies the opportunity to disclose information on how they promote gender equality across four separate areas: company statistics, policies, community engagement and products and services.
