AT&T Recognized by Civic 50 as Industry Leader in Corporate Citizenship

No. 1 spot goes to AT&T in communications category for ranking sponsored by National Conference on Citizenship, Points of Light and Bloomberg News

Dallas, Texas, December 05, 2013

Last month, 40 AT&T employees gathered  in a crowded cafeteria at Kimball High School in Dallas to meet the students they will mentor all year. Through weekly emails and in-person meetings, they will share academic and career advice with the students. The goal is to inspire the students to graduate from high school ready for college and careers.

The mentors are part of AT&T’s Aspire Mentoring Academy and an example of why AT&T was recognized today by The Civic 50 as an industry leader for corporate citizenship.

“We are proud to have earned this distinction from The Civic 50. This recognition is a testament to the countless ways our employees across the country are investing in their communities every day,” said Beth Shiroishi, Vice President, Sustainability and Philanthropy at AT&T. “At AT&T, community service is deeply engrained in our culture. We strive to encourage employees across all facets of the business to spend time improving the communities in which they live and work.” 

The Civic 50 identifies and recognizes companies for their commitment to improving the quality of life in the communities where they do business. AT&T was recognized as the No. 1 most community-minded company in the communications category.

The Civic 50 recognizes companies for their commitment to improving the quality of life in the communities where they do business. The survey was conducted by the National Conference on Citizenship (NCoC) and Points of Light and published by Bloomberg News.

AT&T employees are giving their time and talents to many community initiatives. These include It Can Wait, a movement to stop texting while driving, and Do One Thing, which encourages employees to make one positive change in their lives. 

This award follows AT&T’s Ranking as the No. 1 Best Corporate Citizen by CRO Magazine.
