Sempra has been named to the top 100 on Forbes' list of 'America's Best Employers for Diversity'. This marks the fourth consecutive year that the company has been recognized. Sempra is dedicated to building a high-performance culture that empowers its employees.
Sempra has been named one of the top 100 'America's Best Employers for Diversity' by Forbes for 2022. This is the fourth year in a row that the company has been named a top workplace for diversity by Forbes. This year, Forbes ranked Sempra 92nd out of 500 companies and second among utility industry employers.
"Our strength as a company comes from our high-performance culture, which is fueled by our employees' diverse backgrounds and experiences,"
said Mitch Mitchell, Sempra's senior vice president of diversity and community partnerships.
"With a business footprint spanning from Los Angeles to Mexico City and North Texas, our workforce is a mosaic of different cultures, lived experiences, and shared values - all focused on meeting the ever-changing needs of all stakeholders and the communities we serve."
Promoting Diversity in its Businesses and Communities
Sempra is committed to creating a high-performance culture that empowers its employees by allowing them to reach their full potential while delivering long-term value that benefits the company, customers, and all stakeholders.
The diverse and inclusive environment at the company extends to the communities it serves. In 2021, the Sempra family of companies and the Sempra Foundation will align their community investments around four key priorities: climate action, diversity and inclusion, economic prosperity, and energy access, investing in over 1,650 nonprofit organizations, nearly three-quarters of which will support diverse or underserved communities. More than $1.9 billion in goods and services were purchased from businesses owned by women, minorities, service-disabled veterans, and the LGBTQ+ community by its California utilities, San Diego Gas & Electric and Southern California Gas Co., in 2021, marking the ninth consecutive year that each company's supplier diversity spending exceeded 40% of total spending on goods and services.

Forbes' ranking was determined by an independent survey of 50,000 employees from major corporations in the United States. Respondents were asked about their employers' practices in terms of age, gender equality, ethnicity, disability, sexual orientation, and general diversity. The ranking also took into account diversity on the board of directors and executive teams, as well as the most proactive diversity and inclusion initiatives.
Sempra's mission is to be the leading energy infrastructure company in North America. The Sempra family of companies employs 20,000 talented individuals who provide energy with a purpose to nearly 40 million customers. With more than $72 billion in total assets at the end of 2021, the San Diego-based company owns one of North America's largest energy networks, assisting some of the world's leading economies in their transition to cleaner energy sources. Through electrification and decarbonization in the markets it serves, including California, Texas, Mexico, and the LNG export market, the company is advancing the global energy transition. Sempra has long been recognized as a leader in sustainable business practices, as well as for its long-standing commitment to creating a high-performing culture focused on safety, workforce development and training, and diversity and inclusion. Sempra is the only utility company in North America on the Dow Jones Sustainability World Index, and Fortune Magazine named it one of the "World's Most Admired Companies" for 2022.
