Khadedra Hall is a Con Edison 2022 Living Our Values Award Winner
Khadedra Hall received Con Edison’s highest award for her commitment to safety, excellence and service to others at a ceremony hosted by Con Edison Chairman and CEO Tim Cawley.
Hall, a section manager in the company’s Credit and Field Operations department has been with Con Edison for 16 years. She is a talented mentor, adviser, teacher, and leader. She shares her talents generously at Con Edison and in the community, helping people make their lives safer and better.
“No matter what I do, at work or in my personal life, I think about how I can be of service to others,” Hall said. “Finding ways to help people is just a part of who I am.”
Hall created the company’s first Credit and Field Operations Safety Team to coordinate and standardize safety information and training opportunities. She coordinated the first Customer Operation Safety Conference in 2019 for 650 employees.
She continues to provide field operations with safety information and resources that promote a safe workforce and environment. Her latest effort is helping employees improve their defensive driving skills. She was named the 2020-2021 Safety Leader of the Year and has received numerous Team Awards for her work.
Hall is an advocate and enthusiastic supporter of Con Edison employees. She helps transition employees into new career paths with mock one-on-one interviews, résumé writing, and discussing employment opportunities within the company. She is delighted to hear a colleague tell her, “I got the job.”
Through her work with the Employee Resource Group called Blacks United in Leadership and Development (BUILD), Hall orchestrated three large events that promoted the company’s diversity and inclusion message.
Hall’s candid and straightforward approach produces results. Hall said, “There is power in saying thank you.”
She always finds a way to give back. She has delivered ‘Still a Mother” gift baskets with members of the NYPD’s 84th Precinct to women who suffered the loss of a child.
She has also raised money for the Melquain Jatelle Anderson Foundation, which fights gun violence by helping students prioritize their education. Her work with that organization earned her a Sept. 23 trip to the White House where she shared her insights on the foundation’s work.
Hall serves the community by mentoring for the American Association of Blacks in Energy. She develops curriculums for a grant funded leadership and mentoring program for young women called Purelegacee. She is the co-owner of KNOX, which organizes pop-up shops that ask vendors to donate 10 percent of their proceeds to nonprofits.
She received several citations from then-Brooklyn Borough President Eric Adams for her work in the community.
Hall, who lives in the St. Albans area of Queens, holds a master’s and bachelor’s of business from Monroe College. She is a graduate of John Jay High School in Park Slope, Brooklyn.
