Comcast was named to Black Enterprise’s (BE) third annual list of the top 40 companies for diversity and also was recognized as one of the 15 best companies for workforce diversity.

“Comcast is thrilled to be named to this prestigious list,” said Charisse Lillie, Vice President, Human Resources, Comcast Corporation. “This honor is a tribute to our senior leadership and our employees who make a commitment to diversity each day at Comcast.”

BE’S corporate diversity survey focused primarily on activities related to the participation of African Americans and other ethnic minority groups in four key areas: supplier diversity, senior management, board involvement and employee base. In selecting the top 40, BE conducted a comprehensive outreach effort to the CEOs and diversity executives of the top-grossing 1,000 publicly traded companies and the 50 leading global companies with significant U.S. operations.

“In developing this year’s list, we wanted to make sure we identified companies that viewed diversity as a business imperative,” says BE Careers and Lifestyle Editor Sonia Alleyne.
