Fifth Time Utility Recognized as One of the Best Companies for
Latinas to Work

For the fifth time, Pacific Gas and Electric Co. (PG&E) was recognized
as one of the best companies for Latinas to work for in the United
States by LATINA Style Magazine. This was the 18th
annual LATINA Style 50 Report, considered the most respected
evaluation of corporate America’s policies and opportunities for Latinas
in the workplace.

Companies acknowledged in the report were evaluated on matters LATINA
Magazine readers identified as most important to them in the
workplace. Principal areas of review included the number of Latina
executives, retention, mentoring, educational opportunities, alternative
work policies, employee benefits, women’s issues, job retraining,
affinity groups and Hispanic relations.

“Creating a diverse and inclusive workforce begins with giving future
generations the right opportunities to learn and succeed. PG&E’s focus
on STEM education – Science, Technology, Engineering and Math – is one
of the most important things we do to equip our children to excel in
tomorrow’s workforce, and it’s important to me personally, as a Latina
engineer,” said Geisha Williams, president, PG&E Electric Operations.

“An inclusive culture and diverse labor force helps provide an
environment that encourages everyone to do their very best work. Our
employees, who reflect the diversity of our customers, are driven to
meet the needs of the communities we serve and live in. We’re proud to
have Latinas in key positions to help us in working together to build a
better California,” said Laura Butler, PG&E vice president of talent
management and chief diversity officer.

As of Dec. 31, 2014, Latinas comprise 5.1 percent (1,128) of PG&E’s
total employees. The number of Latina employees at PG&E has steadily
increased over the last five years. As of Dec. 31, 2014, Latinas account
for 18.2 percent of PG&E’s female employees. This is an increase of
nearly 2 percent from 2010 (16.7, 932).

Latinas play a major role in the utility’s daily operations. Besides
Williams, other prominent Latinas at PG&E include Laurie Giammona, who
has been senior vice president and chief customer officer since 2014.

PG&E’s Latino Employee Resource Group (ERG) was founded in 1983 as the
Hispanic Employees Association. After starting with a small group of
employees, membership has grown to nearly 700 with seven chapters
throughout the utility’s service area. This year, the Latino ERG
chapters awarded $60,000 in college scholarships to students.

The 2015 LATINA Style 50 Report accolade marks the fifth straight
year, ninth overall, PG&E has been recognized by the publication.
Besides this year, PG&E was named as one of the LATINA Style
50 companies in 2002, 2003, 2004 and 2011. In addition, the utility
received honorable mention from the report in 2010, 2012, 2013 and 2014.

The LATINA Style 50 companies will be recognized next February
during LATINA Style’s Diversity Leaders and Awards Conference in
Washington, D.C.
