Our society doesn't work if it doesn't work equally for all. That’s why at AT&T, we are committed to Stand for Equality as one of our core values, and we believe we have a moral and business obligation to engage on the fundamental issues of equality and fairness.
To help drive change, we’re dedicating resources and leadership toward initiatives that we believe can move the needle on advancing economic opportunity, overcoming systemic barriers, and ensuring civil rights for all people.
“Our corporate value to Stand for Equality has never been more relevant, not only inside AT&T but outside, as well. It is a business imperative to champion equality, diversity and inclusion in every aspect of our business. That's why we are committed to ensuring our workplace is inclusive and that we recruit, retain and advance people with a wide diversity of backgrounds and perspectives,” John Stankey, CEO.
