Our Diversity, Equity
At AT&T we work to connect all people to
We do this by cultivating an inclusive culture, building the workforce of the future that reflects the communities we serve, and supporting and empowering the communities in which we live, work and play.
To that end, we've created programs focused on elevating historically underrepresented voices and preparing future generations for success, including Dream In Black's Future Makers and Rising Future Makers.
As longtime supporters of Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs), we launched AT&T University's HBCU Leaders Program, a multi-year mentoring and workforce readiness initiative for HBCU students. Within college recruiting, we recruit virtually across all HBCUs.
AT&T has spent $230 billion in businesses and enterprises owned by minorities, women, service-disabled veterans, LGBTQ+ and people with disabilities in the last 54 years. In 2022, we exceeded our goal to spend 4% of our media budget with diverse suppliers, spending 5% of our media budget with diverse suppliers, of which more than 50% was with Black-owned media companies.
