In addition to talking with Thu and Ellen, I’ve enjoyed reading and watching AT&T leaders, employees and community partners share meaningful stories that demonstrate their courageous experiences, heritage and continued contributions to business and society that are a vital part of the inclusive world we are working to create.
Check out Sarita Rao’s story of her Indian immigrant parents and how she honors the diversity and cultural richness of the Asian diaspora through the voices of AT&T employees. Jeff Luong’s personal story as a refugee from Vietnam and the impact that access to technology had on his trajectory and community, even now through his work helping close the digital divide through efforts like the newly launched Connected Learning Center. And Ellen Valencia’s explanation of how AT&T collaborates with a diverse group of more than 90 AAPI enterprises through our Supplier Diversity program, to help drive job growth and training opportunities.
I believe we all have a responsibility to contribute meaningfully and influence change. I would love to hear your thoughts on what you learned and plan to continue doing to honor and celebrate the AAPI community, as well as on how we can all continue to work together to build a more diverse and inclusive world.
