Community Impact: Points of Light Names Comcast NBCUniversal One of America's Most Community-Minded Companies
Comcast NBCUniversal has been recognized once again as one of the most community-minded companies in the nation as part of The Civic 50, an initiative of Points of Light, the world’s largest organization dedicated to volunteer service.
Honorees were selected based on their commitment to using their time, talent and resources to drive social impact in their business and communities throughout 2019.
Last year, our volunteers spanned across more than 600 communities in 23 countries to help improve cities, towns, and neighborhoods across the globe. And this year, as our communities are impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic, our employees are volunteering virtually – from working the phone lines during the annual Red Nose Day broadcast special, to mentoring young people of color hoping to enter the tech workforce through workshops and conferences.
More recently, the tragedies that have prompted calls for social justice have encouraged us to reflect and strengthen our commitment to creating a more equitable and inclusive society.
“One of the most meaningful ways we can support our communities is through service,” said Dalila Wilson-Scott, Senior Vice President of Community Impact and President of the Comcast NBCUniversal Foundation. “Service has always been at the core of Comcast NBCUniversal’s culture, and it also empowers our employees to direct their skills and passions to help others where the need is greatest.”
“Points of Light continues to build on the legacy of our founder, President George H. W. Bush and are committed to empowering, connecting and engaging individuals and organizations to be a force for social good,” said Natalye Paquin, President and CEO of Points of Light. “We believe more than ever that The Civic 50 program continues to help companies build the civic fabric and connections that provide a system of support in times of crisis like we are facing today. We realize this has been a challenging period for all of our honoree companies and commend you for your continued investments in communities and causes that have been helping accelerate transformative change.”
Service has always been at the core of Comcast NBCUniversal’s culture, and it also empowers our employees to direct their skills and passions to help others where the need is greatest.
This is the seventh consecutive year that Comcast NBCUniversal has been recognized as a Civic 50 company.
Comcast NBCUniversal’s recently launched 2020 Values Report, highlights some of the ways we are building, and rebuilding, stronger and more inclusive communities to drive positive impact.
Civic 50 honorees are selected based on the four dimensions of their community engagement and social impact programs: investment of resources, integration across business functions, institutionalization through policies and systems and impact measurement.
