Strong and mutually beneficial relationships with communities, industry, customers and suppliers are an important part of our diversity and inclusion formula. Broad diversity characterizes our 38 million customers across the Americas, and we work diligently to ensure that every aspect of our organization, from marketing to programming to purchasing, reflects that composition.
DIRECTV is working is to ensure that we have a diverse network of suppliers to fulfill our business needs. Our procurement team has developed and implemented a comprehensive policy to track relationships with qualified women- and minority-owned suppliers. We continue to expand our efforts to source goods and services from businesses with owners from historically underrepresented groups.
