More diversity and inclusion for T-Mobile US

In the fall of 2020, the Board of Directors of our national company in the United States adopted a new memorandum of understanding (MOU) for more diversity and inclusion. The MOU was also signed by six major American DE&I advocacy organizations with whom T-Mobile US plans more intensive collaboration. To that end, T-Mobile US has established an External Diversity and Inclusion Council on which each of the organizations that signed the MOU has a seat. Other organizations are also members of the council; a complete list is published on the T-Mobile US website. The council, which has a total of twelve members, advises T-Mobile US with regard to diversity, equity and inclusion issues. In addition, it assists the company in defining relevant priorities and goals and it provides support for implementation of the company’s strategic diversity plan. The council convened for the first time in 2020. As of 2021, its meetings take place on a quarterly to semiannual basis.

In addition to the new council, T-Mobile US also has an internal diversity, equity and Inclusion (D&I) network. Participants meet to address current issues, question prejudices, and learn from each other. Tens of thousands of employees participate in the D&I network. It includes a group for people with disabilities (Accessibility Community), a multicultural group (Multicultural Alliance), an intergenerational network (Multigenerational Network), an LGBTQI* community (Pride), a network for veterans and active military personnel (Veterans & Allies Network), and a women’s network (Women & Allies Network).

T-Mobile US has received a number of awards for its efforts in these areas. In 2022, for example, it received Disability:IN’s Employer of the Year award, as well as the prestigious Forbes honor America’s “Best Employers for Diversity 2022”.
