AT&T has a lot to be proud of across the company. And the latest is that they've been named #1 on DiversityInc.'s Top 50 Companies for Diversity.
AT&T has been in the top 10 for each of the past 6 years. But being #1 this year is a real tribute to the efforts personnel have made to move beyond tolerance to truly understanding each other's perspectives. And this recognition brings to life AT&T's values to stand for equality and pursue excellence.
AT&T Chairman & CEO, Randall Stephenson says, "Being ranked #1 comes with the added responsibility of never being satisfied with where we are today so that our company forever reflects the customers and communities we serve."
AT&T received a top score of 100 for the company's commitment to ensuring that people with disabilities are included within the workplace, customer base and supply chain practices.
