Arias leads a team that provides the entire governance structure, strategy and implementation oversight for Comcast’s diversity and inclusion strategy spanning Comcast corporate, Comcast Cable and NBCUniversal. Recently, the company’s broad diversity strategy has led it to national accolades, including a DiversityInc Top 50 spot. Arias says she’s very proud of Rio Games athletes Simone Manuel, Ibtihaj Muhammad, Katie Ledecky and Allyson Felix as examples of strong role models of women sports- casters. “We need to continue to champion strong women in the media, and it’s a commitment that can never stop,” says Arias, who mentors both within and outside of Comcast.
