NBCUniversal’s Inclusive Culture

NBCUniversal is committed to attracting and retaining the best and most diverse talent. Doing so provides a secure, powerful and competitive advantage in the media and entertainment industry. As part of this commitment NBC established the Diversity Council in 2000. Made up of leaders from across the company, the Council has made strides in increasing diversity and creating programs that encourage diverse individuals to pursue careers in media and entertainment or explore business opportunities with the company.

The company is committed to increasing diversity both on the air and behind the scenes. NBCUniversal gives motivated employees the resources and opportunities to develop and succeed. Among the inclusive strategies are: internships, early career pipeline programs (Page Program, Associates Program, Leadership Programs), Taller Telemundo, Directors In Training, Writers on the Verge, Emma Bowen Foundation, Talent Diversity Initiative, Diversity Initiative for Writers, Supplier Diversity, and the following Affinity Groups:
