A Message from Our Leaders
Comcast founder Ralph Roberts is known for his love of family. Since the very beginning, he believed that Comcast was "one big family," with everyone connected by shared experiences, shared passions, and a shared vision for the future.
Today, the Comcast family is stronger than ever, thanks in no small part to the rich diversity of talent and perspectives brought to the organization — across every Comcast NBCUniversal division, region, technology lab, local office, newsroom, theme park, and studio set — every day.
But our family values of diversity and inclusion extend beyond the walls of our organization. They reach into the communities we serve with diverse content and programming; into our supply chain by encouraging, facilitating, and empowering minority, women-owned and other diverse businesses to work with us; and into our community partnerships, where we focus our resources, talents, and passions into making our communities strong.
In 2002, on the heels of Comcast’s merger with AT&T Broadband, we talked about our hopes and dreams for influencing and changing Comcast for the future and we asked ourselves, "What would be the definition of success?"
We agreed that diversity and inclusion was one of the milestones that would extend to our investment in entrepreneurs and define our success — and just like family, it’s a lifetime commitment at our company.
Our ultimate goal is an important one: to be the model company for diversity and inclusion in the United States. And when we reach this goal, we will continue to raise the bar and outperform ourselves. Today, there’s room to continue growing in pursuit of that goal. But the future is bright, and we pause to acknowledge the advancements we’ve made and the hard work done by and for the benefit of the entire Comcast NBCUniversal family in 2014.
