Share:

Pacific Gas and Electric Company (PG&E) has earned 100 percent — the
highest score possible — on the 2018 Disability Equality Index ® (DEI)
and was named one of the "2018 Best Places to Work for Disability
Inclusion." This is the fourth consecutive year that PG&E has received a
100 percent score on the index.

PG&E was recognized by the DEI for prioritizing the inclusion of peoples
with disabilities, and was one of only five American energy companies
that received a 100 percent score. This index was compiled by the United
States Business Leadership Network
 and the American
Association of People with Disabilities
.

"Individuals with disabilities are a valuable part of our workforce and
our community," said Mary King, PG&E's vice president of Human
Resources. "At PG&E, it's part of our culture to fully embrace diversity
because it fuels innovation and helps us better serve our customers.
We're very proud to be receiving this recognition."

By receiving a top score, according to the survey's compilers, "PG&E has
demonstrated significant business leadership, going far beyond
compliance activities, driving their business success through leading
disability inclusion policies and practices." While this score of 100
percent is the highest possible score, the DEI doesn't consider it a
"perfect score" because there's always room to advance disability
inclusion.

This score acknowledges PG&E's long-standing support of individuals with
disabilities through training, mentorship, focused recruiting efforts,
and more. Examples include:

Access Network Employee Resource Group: Formed in 2010,
PG&E's Access Network ERG is dedicated to supporting, celebrating and
advocating for the inclusion of people with disabilities in PG&E's
workforce. The Access Network also provides support to customers and the
community with disabilities. Since 2012, the group has awarded $84,500
in college scholarships to more than 35 students. In addition, Access
Network has partnered with community-based disability organizations such
as Canine
Companions for Independence
 and Lighthouse
for the Blind and Visually Impaired
.

Service Disabled Veteran Business Enterprises: PG&E's spend
with service disabled veteran business enterprises in 2017 rose 1.6
percent from the previous year, totaling to $311 million. The spend on
service disabled veteran business enterprises made up 5.1 percent of
PG&E's total spend, which is an all-time high for the company. This was
part of PG&E's $2.6
billion spend with diverse suppliers in 2017.

Complete information on PG&E's commitment to equal
employment opportunity
 and diversity
and inclusion
