DALLAS, July 8 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- AT&T* today announced that it has been named as one of the 40 Best Companies for Diversity by Black Enterprise magazine,
a premier publication and resource for African-Americans focusing on
business, entrepreneurship, careers and financial management.
The 2009 40 Best Companies for Diversity were determined by
analyzing responses from a survey administered to major corporations,
which consisted of a comprehensive outreach effort to the CEOs and
diversity executives of the top 1,000 publicly traded companies, as
well as the diversity executives of the 50 leading global companies
with strong U.S. operations.
The survey, which focused on activities related to the participation
of African-Americans, measured companies in one or more of four key
categories: board representation, employee base, senior management and
supplier diversity. AT&T was recognized for its strengths in the
areas of employee base and supplier diversity. This is the fourth year
that AT&T has been included among Black Enterprise's Best Companies for Diversity.
