AT&T’s 134-year history of innovation is a story about people from all walks of life and all kinds of backgrounds coming together to improve the human condition. It is our diversity, coupled with an inclusive culture that welcomes all points of view – which makes us who we are: a great place to work, a desired business partner and a committed member of the communities we serve. This welcoming culture is something we live and breathe every day; our employees expect it and our customers and shareowners benefit from it.
At AT&T our hundreds of thousands of employees have long understood a basic fact: We do not simply support our communities; we are members of them. That’s why for more than a century we have helped shape those communities though our philanthropic efforts. Through volunteerism and giving, we make a difference.
For the past 25 years, the AT&T Foundation has been pivotal in enriching and strengthening the diverse communities we serve. The Foundation specifically supports nonprofit organizations and projects that increase inclusion and create opportunities for diverse populations.
AT&T’s global customer base is as diverse as the planet’s population, and we do our best to serve our customers in the language they prefer. It’s all about helping each individual see how AT&T can improve his or her life. To that end, we constantly ask ourselves: How can we improve the way we connect with an even wider array of people?
AT&T is among the world’s best when it comes to finding and doing business with diverse suppliers. Our Supplier Diversity Programs began in 1968. Since this time, AT&T has spent more than $50 billion dollars with minority, women and disabled veteran businesses.
