AT&T Again Ranked Among Top Employers For Multicultural Engineering And I.T. Professionals

Dallas, Texas, August 22, 2011

Readers of Workforce Diversity for Engineering and I.T. magazine have again ranked AT&T as one of America’s top employers.   This is the second consecutive year that AT&T is recognized in the magazine’s Top 50 Employers List, this time at No. 11.

In its annual diversity survey, the magazine asked readers to identify the companies for which they would either like to work or which they believe would provide a positive working environment for members of minority groups.

“As a technology company, we’re particularly honored by this distinction,” said Debbie Storey, senior vice president for Talent Development and chief diversity officer.  “Our success largely depends on the contributions of our engineers, scientists and I.T. professionals.  As an employer of choice, we are pleased to learn that individuals in those fields are aware of AT&T’s inclusive work environment, which embeds diversity in its business practices and thrives on innovation.”

Employees of diverse backgrounds make up 38 percent of AT&T’s workforce and 31 percent of its management ranks.  The company’s diversity and inclusion practices have been recognized by numerous organizations and publications including:  DiversityInc, National Minority Supplier Development Council; NAFE, the National Association for Female Executives; LatinaStyle magazine; Hispanic Business magazine; and Black Enterprise magazine.
