WGL Holdings, Inc. (NYSE:WGL), the parent company of Washington Gas and
other energy-related subsidiaries, has been named one of the 40 Best
Companies for Diversity for the 5th consecutive year, according to Black
Enterprise magazine. One thousand publicly traded
companies and 100 leading global companies with major U.S. operations
were invited to participate in the survey. The survey used four key
areas: suppliers, senior management, workforce and corporate board
diversity as measurements of each company's diversity practices.

companies surveyed that demonstrated significant strengths in all four
criteria for diversity measurement.

Human Resources for Washington Gas. "We appreciate this recognition and
