From The Company
At Comcast NBCUniversal, we strive to make every employee feel valued and respected for who they are and the unique contributions they make.
We believe that a diverse and inclusive company is a more innovative and successful company, which is why we aim to infuse diversity and inclusion (D&I) into all aspects of our culture and our business.
For us, D&I is not a program — it is a central element of our credo and DNA. Our approach to D&I is focused on five key pillars: governance, workforce, supplier diversity, programming, and community impact. Our commitment to diversity starts at the top, with our Board of Directors.
Our Board diversity has nearly tripled since year-end 2010. Our workforce is 62% women or people of color, with 71% of our new hires in 2019 being women or people of color. Since 2010, we’ve provided over $2.1 billion in cash and in-kind giving to minorities, and in that same time period we’ve spent more than $22 billion with diverse tier 1 suppliers.
