Our DEI Commitments

Our efforts to advance DEI throughout Edison International and the communities we serve are guided by 10 commitments, which we established in 2020. In 2021, we implemented each of the 10 commitments, most of which initially focused on our Black colleagues and community. Many of the commitments will be expanded in 2022 and beyond to our broader employee population, to further our efforts to embrace all forms of diversity, including age, disability, race, ethnicity, gender, LGBTQ+, religion, veteran status and diversity of thought, and to support all of our team members, partners and communities.
