Arias, who gives props to NBC’s “Superstore” and USA’s “Mr. Robot” for celebrating diversity, oversees the implementation of diversity and inclusion initiatives across Comcast. She works closely with the company’s executive internal diversity council, and external Comcast NBCU joint diversity advisory council, comprised of more than 40 national civil rights, community and business leaders. Voice-enabled technology is the technology that will most benefit cable during the next year, she notes. “The Xfinity Voice Remote is just the beginning for us, and we’re incredibly excited about the ways in which this technology will improve and enhance every aspect of our customers’ experience.”

What television show/s – cable or broadcast – best embrace diversity?
There are so many great shows that not only embrace diversity but celebrate it. “Superstore” on NBC and “Mr. Robot” on USA, which feature incredibly talented minorities in leading roles, are changing the game and doing incredibly well with audiences. I’m also proud of NBC’s coverage of the Rio Olympics, which features inspiring women and minorities like Simone Biles, Simone Manuel and Katie Ledecky, who have become role models to Americans of every age, race, gender, and background.
Favorite charity organization you work with?
I’m honored to be on the Board of Directors of Congreso de Latinos Unidos, Inc. The organization’s goal is to strengthen Latino communities, and I have a particular passion for their commitment to education and workforce readiness. I love that the program extends from kindergarteners all the way to adults who are trying to expand their skills and take on new challenges.
