Nellie has been volunteering her time since she started at AT&T 44 years ago! She volunteers at many different organizations, but she is especially proud to volunteer with AT&T’s Pioneers for the last 40 years. Last year, she served as a volunteer for the League of Women Voters, where she spent her time registering citizens to vote around election season: “You can cast your vote to help bring about the changes that you want to see in our communities,” she says.
Monique is empowering women around the world through an organization she helped found called Feminenza which is based in 18 countries across Europe, Asia Pacific, North America and the Middle East and the AT&T EMEA Women’s Network. Through Feminenza, she is giving her time to equip women leaders around the world, including in Kenya who are transforming their own communities. Monique also volunteers with an Aspire program to help students prepare for careers.

Jon has joined and served with a number of associations within the fire service, including the National Volunteer Fire Council, the Georgia Fire Chiefs Association, the Metro Atlanta Fire Chiefs’ Association and the Red Knights.
