Comcast NBCUniversal's Diversity Commitment Reflected in Rising National Ranking
More than 1,600 public and private organizations participated in the annual survey this year, which assesses an organizations’ performance in four key areas: talent pipeline, equitable talent development, CEO/leadership commitment, and supplier diversity.
Comcast’s progress on this renowned list is attributed to improved talent development, strong community service, Comcast and NBCUniversal’s internal diversity councils, external Comcast NBCUniversal Joint Diversity Advisory Council, and employee resource groups.
"Inclusion welcomes every voice to the table. We are dedicated to engaging all audiences and communities by practicing inclusion within our governance, workforce, supply chain, programming, and community investments," said David L. Cohen, Executive Vice President and Chief Diversity Officer, Comcast Corporation. "We are resolute in this commitment and to our goal of becoming the model company for diversity and inclusion."
Comcast NBCUniversal also ranked in 10th place among DiversityInc’s Top 10 Companies for People with Disabilities.
