AT&T Ranks #4 on DiversityInc’s 2016 List of Top 50 Companies for Diversity
As we look to the future of our company – and its place in the world of technology and innovation – we know what we need to be successful: a broad mix of perspective, skills and ideas. Walking the halls of any building or facility at AT&T, you’ll notice something – the people are diverse. Here, Every Voice Matters. From our executives to our retail employees, everyone’s differences are authentically embraced, valued and vital to our business inside and out.
This is a primary reason why AT&T has climbed 3 spots to No. 4 on the DiversityInc Top 50 Companies for Diversity List. And we couldn’t be more proud. It’s an honor to be listed alongside so many other amazing companies making the call for diversity.

More than 1,800 companies participated in the survey this year. The survey, now in its 17th year, assesses performance based on four key areas of Diversity & Inclusion:
- Talent Pipeline: workforce breakdown, recruitment, diameter of existing talent, structures
- Equitable Talent Development: employee resource groups, mentoring, philanthropy, movement, fairness
- CEO/Leadership Commitment: accountability for results, personal communications, visibility
- Supplier Diversity: spend with companies owned by people from underrepresented groups, accountability, support
