Can you share a successful diversity program at your company or one you’ve observed at another company or organization?
NBCUniversal has a full-time dedicated team that leads diversity efforts in the workplace. NBCUniversal offers 8 employee resource groups (Asian Pacific Americans, Black Employee Network, myAbilities Network, OUT@NBCUniversal, Unidos, Veterans Network, Women’s Network, Young Professionals Network) that provide unique opportunities for diverse employees to network and connect with each other.
During my tenure at NBCUniversal, I was honored to be selected among hundreds of senior level women across NBCU businesses to lead the Tri-State Women’s Network, which includes ~2,000 female executives, creating opportunities for NBCU women to develop as leaders, network / connect with other successful women, and advance their career paths. Through the women’s network, I’ve built valuable relationships in and outside the company. I’ve tapped into this network of women throughout my tenure at NBCU which has grown me professionally and personally. As a working mom of 2, I’ve leveraged this network for career development and parenting tips.
Which current television show/s best embrace diversity?
I’m a big fan of NBC’s “The Good Place.” The show includes a diverse cast while also embracing what unites us- humanity through its ethical touchpoints. As part of NBC’s Thursday comedy block, the quick wit writing and twist on death make it a remarkably funny show to get hooked on.
