NUDC is saddened by the passing of former Assemblymember Gwen Moore, CA-49 on August 19. She was a tireless fighter for her constituents and for California and served as Majority Whip during her tenure. Her positive impact on diversity in the utilities and communications industry cannot be calculated. She was the author of General Order 156, which required the California Public Utilities Commission to establish a procedure through which utilities and communication companies would report on their supplier diversity and allowed the CPUC to set targets for this procurement. This was a game changer for diverse enterprises and for the utilities and communication companies doing business in California. https://lasentinel.net/former-california-state-assemblywoman-gwen-moore-dies.html. Gwen Moore was a fearless champion of diversity and opportunity and a beacon to so many. Her loss diminishes our industry but we are all so much better for her time here.
