From our place as one of the largest media, technology, and broadband companies in the world, we have the unique ability to help solve some of the most challenging social issues of our time. Our impact starts with our philanthropy and volunteerism, and grows with our efforts to connect the unconnected and our ability to amplify the voices of today’s change-makers in our communities and within our own walls. That’s why we invest in digital inclusion, foster the brightest innovators and entrepreneurs and spotlight young, diverse filmmakers. It’s why we hold up the microphone for community problem-solvers, and uphold and empower our own Comcast NBCUniversal family to make a lasting difference. Our influence and reach make it possible to create a positive impact every day.
A MESSAGE FROM DALILA WILSON-SCOTT
Our most valuable assets at Comcast NBCUniversal are our talent, technology, and reach, and I’m excited to lead the effort to help find more ways to leverage them to make our communities stronger.
With an incredible foundation to build on, we are reinforcing our commitment to service both on Comcast Cares Day and throughout the year, while increasing opportunities for employees to use their unique talents to address community needs. From board service to pro bono legal support to mentoring our future leaders, our employees stand committed to lending their talents for good.
We believe technology is empowering and are focused on making it accessible to everyone, but we also recognize that access alone isn’t enough to close the opportunity divide. In addition to securing basic digital skills, it’s also vital to help individuals gain the digital skills needed to compete for 21st-century jobs, to start and grow small businesses, and to fully participate in the innovation economy.
Our nonprofit partners are often challenged with accessing expertise and technology, along with telling their stories. One of the ways we address this issue is to use our unparalleled reach to help our communities and partners create and share their inspiring stories, educating more audiences on critical social issues and the game-changing solutions at work.
It’s an honor to be a part of the fabric of the places where we live and work, and we look forward to doing even more to enhance our communities.
Dalila Wilson-Scott, Senior Vice President of Community Investment
