A Diverse & Inclusive Strategy for Governance
We want to be a company where, like in a family, every voice matters - where new markets are leveraged and where we are in complete harmony anticipating the needs of our customers and audiences. This vision begins with our leadership. Recognizing the power and competitive advantage that many perspectives aligned under one vision bring to an organization, Comcast’s Board of Directors is more committed than ever to promote and enable diversity and inclusion across our workforce, suppliers, programming, and community initiatives.
2014 BOARD OF DIRECTORS
Our leaders don’t just "buy in" to diversity; they work tirelessly to promote and leverage the rich diversity brought to our organization for the continued differentiated success of our business.

A GAME PLAN FOR SUCCESS
In business, as in sports, winning takes a game plan. At Comcast, that game plan for success starts with a sharp focus on the five pillars of diversity and inclusion identified in our Master Strategic Plan — Workforce, Procurement, Programming, Community Investment, and Governance.
For Comcast, governance is about leadership that is ingrained in the businesses and specifically focused on driving diversity and inclusion every day. Our comprehensive governance structure focuses on accountability, responsibility, expectations, and effective management of diversity and inclusion programs at the highest levels.
Our 12-member Board of Directors is one-third diverse. The Board includes three people of color — two African Americans and one Hispanic — and one female Board member. The Board also includes three veterans: Joseph J. Collins, Chairman of Aegis, LLC; Ralph J. Roberts, Comcast Founder and Chairman Emeritus of the Board; and Johnathan A. Rodgers, retired President and Chief Executive Officer of TV One.
Comcast and NBCUniversal’s corporate Diversity & Inclusion departments are responsible for coordinating implementation of the company’s diversity initiatives. Additionally, our company’s internal Diversity Councils, comprised of key Comcast NBCUniversal executives, work to implement, promote, and sustain diversity throughout our organization.
