Diversity, Equity and Inclusion
Pedro Pizarro is president and chief executive officer of Edison International, the parent company of Southern California Edison. Jacqueline Trapp is Chief Human Resources Officer of Edison International.
Edison International and its operating utility, Southern California Edison, have decided to take the next step in diversity, equity, and inclusion. It's all about transparency.
Not only are they accelerating their programs to increase racial equality within the utility and among its suppliers, they're showing everybody what they've accomplished, and what challenges remain. In considerable detail, no matter how encouraging or discouraging, they are rating relative to indicative metrics of equality.
Here, we talk about this transparency initiative with Edison's CEO, Pedro Pizarro, himself a rarity among Fortune 500 CEOs given his Latino heritage. Joining him in the conversation is Jacqueline Trapp, a key player in executing the initiative as the company's chief human resources officer.
