Black Enterprise Names AT&T One of the 40 Best Companies for Diversity
Whether it’s taking a walk down our halls or meeting face to face with our suppliers and customers, one thing is clear: different people with different backgrounds, ways of thinking and work styles make AT&T unique. It just makes good business sense to champion diversity and inclusion. Recently, Black Enterprise magazine took notice and named us one of the 40 Best Companies for Diversity.
“AT&T’s diverse workforce helps us better serve our diverse customers, and work with our diverse vendors,” says Debbie Storey, SVP-Talent Development and Chief Diversity Officer. “Employee programs, such as the Community NETwork, focus on developing African-American talent and fostering professional growth. Externally, our Supplier Diversity Program is designed to empower minority-owned small businesses, and our culturally relevant marketing efforts seek to connect and resonate with diverse communities.”
AT&T will join Black Enterprise in celebrating its 10th Women of Power Summit this March as a presenting sponsor, and will host a personal branding and social media session titled “Mobilizing You.”
Featuring engaging workshops and influential speakers, the annual leadership conference offers inspiration to women of color from across the country.
“AT&T’s sponsorship of the Black Enterprise Women of Power Summit is just one way we support initiatives that strengthen the African-American community,” says Jennifer Jones, Vice President of Diversity Markets. “The dynamic leaders who attend this annual event leave empowered to make a difference in their careers, communities and businesses.”
