Diversity, Equity & Inclusion

Investing in a Diverse Leadership Pipeline

We’re making long-term investments in our talent, both in programs we create for our employees and in external programs we support and sponsor, through partnerships with media and technology industry organizations.

One of Comcast NBCUniversal’s long-standing signature development programs is the National Association for Multi-ethnicity in Communications (NAMIC) Executive Leadership Development Program (ELDP). ELDP welcomes director-level and above leaders from Comcast NBCUniversal and leaders from many other media and technology companies for a year-long, academic- and business- focused curriculum. ELDP is offered in partnership with the University of Virginia Darden School of Business, a globally celebrated program with a proven track record in the executive education space and expertise in leveraging a world-class diverse faculty to deliver robust, research- anchored content.

Since 2001, Comcast NBCUniversal has sponsored more than 100 ethnically diverse high-potential employees to participate in NAMIC ELDP, and the program has served as a tremendous development and retention tool for our ethnically diverse leaders.

Between YE 2010 and YE 2014, Comcast NBCUniversal sponsored 49 ELDP program participants. Since graduating from the program, 94% of graduates remain members of the Comcast NBCUniversal family, and 54% of graduates received a promotion.
