EXTERNAL JOINT DIVERSITY ADVISORY COUNCIL
Our external Joint Diversity Advisory Council (JDC) brings together national leaders in business, politics, and civil rights to provide advice to our senior executive teams regarding our development and implementation of diversity and inclusion initiatives in governance, workforce, supplier relationships, programming, and community investment. The JDC includes four nine-member Diversity Advisory Councils representing the interests of African Americans, Asian Americans, Hispanics, and women. Representatives from other diverse groups, including Native Americans, veterans, people with disabilities, and members of the LGBT community also participate.
David L. Cohen, our Executive Vice President and Chief Diversity Officer, is chairman of the JDC. With the guidance of our company leaders and this esteemed council, we made significant advances in our five focus areas in 2012.

INTERNAL DIVERSITY COUNCILS
Comcast and NBCUniversal’s Internal Diversity Councils (IDCs) are led by senior executives who provide guidance as we implement and sustain successful diversity and inclusion practices across the company. We meet regularly to discuss progress on diversity initiatives and to explore ways to strengthen our commitment to diversity and inclusion. Members of our IDCs attend formal meetings of the JDC. In 2012, we ranked fifth on the Association of Diversity Councils’ Top 25 list — our fourth consecutive year of recognition.
