AT&T Receives High Honors for Commitment to Hispanics
Company Tops Two Prominent Publications' Diversity Lists
Los Angeles, California, Dallas, Texas, September 2, 2008
AT&T Inc. (NYSE:T) today announced that the company has received the top rankings on diversity lists published by two Hispanic magazines for the company's commitment to diversity and inclusion and, more specifically, the Hispanic community.
AT&T ranks No. 1 among Hispanic Business magazine's Diversity Elite, which will be included in the September 2008 issue of the magazine. This recognition is based on the company's commitment to reach out to Hispanics in the areas of recruitment and retention, procurement, philanthropy and marketing. AT&T has been included among the Diversity Elite in past years.
AT&T was also named Company of the Year by LATINA Style magazine, the highest recognition for a company included among the publication's 50 Best Companies for Latinas to Work For in the United States, also known as the LATINA Style 50. The 50 Best Companies list appeared in the August 2008 issue of the magazine.
For the 2008 LATINA Style 50 list, more than 1,000 U.S. corporations were surveyed on items deemed most important by the publication's Hispanic female readers, including mentoring programs, Latina executives and board members, educational opportunities, alternative work policies, dependent/child care support and employee benefits. AT&T has been included among the magazine's 50 Best Companies for 11 consecutive years and was ranked among the top 12 companies in 2007.
In addition to the accolades from Hispanic Business and LATINA Style, AT&T has been selected for Latin Business magazine's Corporate Diversity Honor Roll, which will appear in the Fall 2008 issue of the magazine.
"Diversity and inclusion are woven into the fabric of AT&T's culture, and these attributes permeate every aspect of our business," said Cindy Brinkley, chief diversity officer and senior vice president-Talent Development, AT&T. "We are proud of these recognitions, as they reflect our philosophy and validate our efforts."
This year, AT&T also ranked No. 1 among DiversityBusiness.com's Top Organizations for Multicultural Business Opportunities because of the consistency and quality of business opportunities that the company grants to minority- and women-owned companies, and AT&T was included among DiversityInc's Top 50 Companies for Diversity.
