Company Earns 100% on Corporate Equality Index for 18th Consecutive Year

SAN FRANCISCO--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Pacific Gas and Electric Company (PG&E) has earned a spot in the “Best Places to Work for LGBTQ+ Equality 2022” as measured by the Human Rights Campaign Foundation’s 2022 Corporate Equality Index, the nation’s foremost benchmarking survey and report measuring corporate policies and practices related to LGBTQ+ workplace equality.

“We’re very proud to have achieved a perfect score for 18 consecutive years on the Corporate Equality Index. A diverse, inclusive and equitable environment is critical to achieving our purpose of delivering for our hometowns, serving the planet and leading with love,” said Jamie Martin, PG&E Vice President and Executive Co-Sponsor of PG&E’s PrideNetwork Employee Resource Group.

“Our PrideNetwork Employee Resource Group is one of the oldest such groups in the nation, and our community of LGBTQ+ coworkers and allies are dedicated to the continued advancement of LGBTQ+ rights. We won’t stop working to continuously grow and improve,” said Andy Williams, also a PG&E Vice President and PrideNetwork Executive Co-Sponsor.

For the 18th consecutive year, PG&E received a perfect score on the CEI, which rates companies on detailed criteria falling under four central pillars:

  • Non-discrimination policies across business entities;
  • Equitable benefits for LGBTQ+ workers and their families;
  • Supporting an inclusive culture; and
  • Corporate social responsibility.

PG&E has been one of the leading corporate voices in the LGBTQ+ community for many years. Examples of the company’s support include:

  • Being the first corporate sponsor and participant in the San Francisco Pride Parade (1986);
  • Having one of the oldest LGBTQ+ employee resource groups (PrideNetwork) in the nation;
  • Being the first utility to actively recruit LGBTQ+ -owned enterprises in its supplier diversity program;
  • Creating internal and external awareness about LGBTQ+ rights and issues; and
  • Being the first major company in California to support the campaign against Proposition 8 in 2008, the ballot measure banning same-sex marriage.

“We’re proud the Corporate Equality Index has paved the way for countless LGBTQ+ workers in America and abroad. But there’s still more to do, which is why we’re raising the bar yet again to create more equitable workplaces and a better tomorrow for LGBTQ+ workers everywhere,” said Jay Brown, senior vice president of programs, research and training for the Human Rights Campaign Foundation.
