AT&T is a strong advocate of creating a supportive environment for pan-Asian leaders, and is honored to have received a special recognition from Asia Society. At the 6th Annual Diversity Leadership Forum and Awards Ceremony, AT&T accepted the Award Winner for “Best Company for Mentoring” and Honorable Mention for the “Best Company for Support of the APA Community”.  

Asia Society is the leading global organization that works to strengthen relationships between the U.S. and Asia. The awards are based on the quality of the APA programs, as well as the results from the employee surveys which made up the 2014 Asian Pacific Americans Corporate Survey, which explores the many facets of the APA employee experience. The awards are truly reflective of AT&T’s core commitment to diversity.

AT&T seeks to be at the forefront of raising up global leaders. Says Debbie Storey, SVP – Talent Development & Chief Diversity Officer, “AT&T is honored to be recognized by Asia Society. In an industry that evolves as quickly as ours, it’s vital that we have a diverse, inclusive culture that encourages continuous learning. When our mentoring and diversity efforts are recognized by an organization like Asia Society, it validates for our employees – including thousands of Asian Pacific Americans – that we’re on the right track.”

John Medamana, VP of Network and Development, was on hand to receive the awards. He was supported by Damon Wei, APCA National Vice President; Annie Ritter, FACES Northeast Chapter President; and Devendra Chaudhary, OASIS New Jersey. All are present in the above photo.
