EMPLOYEE RESOURCE GROUPS

Latina Style 2012

Comcast named

Company of the Year in 2012

by LATINA Style.

Comcast and NBCUniversal cultivate an array of Employee Resource Groups (ERGs) that engage people at all levels of the organization. Our ERGs work to foster a culture of inclusion; help provide opportunities to identify, recruit, and promote diverse talent; and encourage collaboration — at all levels in our company.

In 2012, Comcast continued to build on our late-2011 launch of eight ERGs, growing membership to more than 2,800 employees. NBCUniversal’s long-standing ERGs have a membership of about 7,000, and in 2012 we added the Abilities Network@NBCUniversal to foster an environment that recruits, develops, and retains those who have varied abilities. Senior leaders serve as Executive Champions for each of the ERGs.

In April 2012, the NBCUniversal Office of Diversity & Inclusion hosted IMPACT, an internal two-day workshop for ERG leaders. Comcast leaders attended the event to learn about NBCUniversal’s best practices. This summit provided attendees with an update on the business, exposure to senior leaders, and opportunities to refine their professional skills.

Our Employee Resource Groups include:

  • Abilities Network@Comcast

  • Asian Pacific Alliance@Comcast

  • Black Professional Alliance@Comcast

  • OUT@Comcast (LGBT and Straight Allies)

  • SomosComcástico (Hispanic)

Comcast’s Executive Leadership Career Advancement Program (ELCAP) is designed to accelerate career growth and increase retention for a diverse pipeline of leadership talent. ELCAP provides on-the-job development and exposure for employees with potential for a vice president role as a next career move through executive sponsorship, individual development plans, and group learning events.

In 2012, NBCUniversal launched TEAM NBCUniversal, a cross-functional mentoring program that provides targeted development and exposure for rising leaders at pivotal career points. The program utilizes a team format to ensure that the participants develop relationships not only with executives outside of their businesses, but also with other peer leaders.
