Today, T-Mobile unveiled the members of its External Diversity and Inclusion Council. The group was created as part of T-Mobile’s groundbreaking multi-year, $25 million civil rights memorandum of understanding (MOU) signed last year with six diversity and civil rights organizations. The council includes a representative from each of the organizations that co-signed the MOU and others from outside T-Mobile who are leaders in their respective communities.

The men and women of the council include some of America’s most accomplished civil rights leaders, representing a wide-range of underrepresented communities. Together with T-Mobile, the council will help identify ways to improve the company’s efforts in focus areas of the MOU such as corporate governance, workforce recruitment and retention, procurement and entrepreneurship, wireless services – including 5G wireless services – for low income consumers, and philanthropy and community investment.
