Corey Anthony, SVP-HR & chief diversity officer, is probably still feeling the energy from the ERG Conference that filled the Sheraton ballroom with over 2,200 employees in Dallas last week.
It’s no secret that AT&T stands for equality. It’s not only one of our core values, it’s a big part of who we are and how we’re shaping the future. “You might say a commitment to diversity and inclusion is in our DNA,” said Corey.
Corey shares more of his story and how AT&T remains committed to Diversity and Inclusion with Jamie Michael Hemmings, president and co-founder of Best Tyme. He has a series in Authority Magazine highlighting Black Men in Tech.
Jamie also interviewed 2 more AT&T executives for his series:
- David Huntley, senior executive vice president & chief compliance officer
- Xavier Williams, president global pub sector and wholesale solutions
They talked about embracing their cultural and individual identity, how they lead teams and push past roadblocks to become who they are today.
Corey’s advice to all leaders: “I would say, it starts at the top. Walking the talk when it comes to diversity and inclusion must start with a company’s most senior leaders. They drive the culture.”
