Lillie recently announced she plans to retire in January 2017 after a 12-year run at Comcast. She is one of Comcast’s most senior African-American female executives and has played an integral role in shaping the company’s diversity strategy.

Lillie gives the industry an “A for effort” in terms of fostering diversity. “We are making progress. But all of us are eager to see more progress. A more diverse and inclusive cable industry will be more innovative and more successful than we can imagine. Innovation and continued growth will abound.”
