Stocks in this article: PCG

SAN FRANCISCO, May 7, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Pacific Gas and Electric Company (PG&E) has been recognized by DiversityInc as one of the top regional utilities in the country for its strong diversity practices. This is the fifth year in a row that the utility has been recognized by DiversityInc, a leading publication on diversity and businesses.

"It is clear that U.S. companies are increasingly conscious of the importance of diversity," said Luke Visconti, Chief Executive Officer of DiversityInc. "We are very encouraged to see PG&E applying for this distinction. We also note a continued positive correlation between achievement in diversity and overall company performance."

For the 2013 ranking, DiversityInc surveyed 893 companies with at least 1,000 employees. Participating companies were rated by DiversityInc. in four key areas: CEO Commitment to Diversity Management, Workforce Diversity and Human Capital, Corporate/Organizational Communications, and Supplier Diversity.

"It is an honor to be named by DiversityInc one of the top regional utilities in the country for diversity. As a utility that serves some of the most diverse communities in the nation, PG&E views diversity as the very fabric of our corporate culture," said Laura Butler, Vice President of Talent Management and Chief Diversity Officer at PG&E. "This commitment to diversity and inclusion is a critical part of our values and how we work to provide safe, reliable and affordable gas and electric service to our customers."

PG&E's leadership upholds the company's strong commitment to diversity and inclusion – from an inclusive Board of Directors with a diverse representation, to required diversity and inclusion training for all members of the company's leadership team. The utility also has a history of grassroots Employee Resource Groups (ERGs) that goes back more than 40 years. Today, these include: InspirAsian, Samahan (Filipino), BEA (African American), Latino, Women's Network, Pride Network, NuEnergy (new to the workforce), Access Network (People with Disabilities), Legacy (long tenured) , and the Veterans ERGs.
