    Powering Up

    Southern California Edison hired me right out of college and I have been there ever since. That's about 30 years now and though that sounds like a really long time, there haven't been many dull moments. I've had over 20 different jobs with Edison, including opportunities in customer service and IT, and leadership roles in several large programs and operational functions.

The definition and essence of diversity is vast and goes beyond demographic differences including gender, nationality, culture, ethnicity, age, or the differing abilities of individuals. It is about recognizing the differences which exist, harnessing and synergizing them, and creating an environment which is conducive to bring out the best in all.

HCL’s Inclusion & Diversity vision is to reinforce the Employee First philosophy by building an inclusive organization that fosters respect for every individual and celebrates the differences among all employees. We value the experiences, knowledge, and talents of all individuals in our company and communities we operate in. We support and promote non-discriminatory practices for people to participate, contribute, and develop equitably.

The Women Lead Initiative

The Women Lead Initiative is a flagship program designed to promote senior women executives in leadership roles through formal mentorship. Powered by HCL Technologies, the program was pioneered in 2015 to unite a power cohort of successful and influential executive leaders and high potential senior female executives from leading firms across the corporate landscape.

Having already seen the successful implementation of two chapters in Australia in 2015 and then in 2017, we are set to launch maiden chapters for the program in Sweden and the US in this year.
