“Every person truly matters! I am an ally because, while my primary area of focus is around the OUT ERG, I fully support the other ERGs that are active at my site with the same benchmark for acceptance, tolerance, and understanding that I would have for a member of any ERG.” – Jack Wranesh, Supervisor, Tucson NCoE.
At Comcast NBCUniversal, diversity and inclusion are part of our DNA. We have been named one of the Human Rights Campaign’s Best Places to Work for five years in a row. This is due in part to Employee Resource Groups (ERG) like OUT at Comcast, which started as a corporate initiative and has since grown to include satellite chapters across the country.
This year will mark Comcast’s fourth year of participation in the Tucson Pride Festival and Parade, which happens in September. Comcast’s involvement is organized by our local Xfinity and OUT at Comcast teams. OUT at Comcast’s mission is to connect LGBTQ employees and straight allies by contributing to a workplace environment that is aware, inclusive and productive for all.
“It’s important to love people for who they are, now, more than ever. To show people that we are here, we look, talk, think, eat, and act, just like you do, with the same dreams and aspirations everyone else has.” – Angelina Schulte, Customer Experience Associate, Tucson NCoE.
Comcast is proud to support the Tucson Pride Festival and Parade. This is not only because we believe in valuing the authenticity of every employee, but because the diversity of our workforce is vital to our business. Diversity and inclusion enable us to create and support original programming that reflects real people and their experiences, and to develop products that better serve millions of customers across the United States and around the world.
Events like Pride provide us the opportunity to show our deep commitment to an inclusive culture that encourages, supports, and celebrates the diverse voices of our employees. These values fuel our innovation and connect us more closely to the communities we serve.
