The prestigious "Best-of-the-Best" recognition is awarded annually by the National Gay & Lesbian Chamber of Commerce (NGLCC) and the National Business Inclusion Consortium (NBIC).
The NBIC is a coalition of national diverse business organizations spearheaded by the NGLCC, and includes the Women’s Business Enterprise National Council, U.S. Hispanic Chamber of Commerce, U.S. Pan Asian American Chamber of Commerce, National Black Justice Coalition, U.S. Business Leadership Network and WEConnect International.
"We have already seen the bar rise for corporate inclusion since last year’s inaugural list was named," said NGLCC Co-Founder and President Justin Nelson. "By recognizing these industry leaders and the policymakers who collaborate with them as the Best-of-the-Best, we are further shaping a better future for all diverse communities in business. Together we reaffirm our common, ongoing mission to improve business inclusion among Fortune 500 corporations and government agencies across America."
Only companies achieving industry leading results across all diverse segments are eligible to receive the designation from the NBIC. At Comcast NBCUniversal, our commitment to diversity and inclusion reaches across our business and our culture. In addition to building a diverse and inclusive workforce, we are committed to creating opportunities for diverse businesses in our supply chain, creating programming that reflects our customers, and investing in non-profit organizations that strengthen our diverse communities.
At Comcast NBCUniversal, we invest in our people, and we are committed to building a diverse and inclusive workforce for all communities. The company now has eight Employee Resource Groups, with nearly 20,000 members across more than 115 chapters throughout our footprint. Because of our commitment to diverse businesses, Comcast NBCUniversal was the first media and technology company to be inducted into the Billion Dollar Roundtable, a prestigious corporate advocacy group that celebrates corporations that achieved spending of at least $1 billion with minority and woman-owned suppliers.
Diversity and inclusion is an integral part of our DNA, a business imperative, and essential to our innovation, and we are honored to be named a 2016 "Best-of-the-Best" Corporation for Inclusion.
