AT&T's 136-year history of innovation is a story about people from all walks of life and all kinds of backgrounds coming together to connect people to their world anywhere, anytime and on any device. It is our diverse, inclusive culture that welcomes all points of view, that makes us who we are: a great place to work, a desired business partner and a committed member of the communities we serve. This inclusive culture is something we live every day; our employees expect it and our customers and shareowners benefit from it.
At AT&T, our employees have long honored essential core values. We do not simply support our communities; we are engaged, contributing members of them. That's why for more than a century, we have helped shape communities though our philanthropic efforts. Through volunteerism and giving, we make a real difference where we work … and live.
For the past 26 years, the AT&T Foundation has been pivotal in enriching and engaging in the communities we serve. The Foundation specifically supports non-profit organizations and programs that foster inclusion and create opportunities for diverse populations.
AT&T's global customer base is as diverse as the world's population, and we strive to serve our customers in the language they prefer. It's all about helping individuals see how AT&T can connect them to their world. 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 leading companies when it comes to identifying and doing business with diverse suppliers. Since 1968, the AT&T Global Supplier Diversity organization connects certified diverse minority, women, and disabled veteran-owned business enterprises (MBE, WBE and DVBEs) businesses with opportunities to provide products and services to AT&T around the world.
"A diverse workforce and inclusive culture are essential to AT&T. They allow us to attract and retain the best and the brightest to develop the most innovative products and solutions to meet our customers' needs."
