Diversity & Inclusion
Building Up and Building Out
Diversity is a core value of our Dynamic Organization. It is who we are, and aspire to be, as a company.
When U.S. Cellular® associates come together, we create a rich tapestry of passionate and diverse associates who pridefully lead with excellence. We each bring our diverse cultures, backgrounds and talents together for a common purpose—to provide the world’s best customer experience.
Diversity creates a passionate climate of individual thought, creativity and industry-leading innovation that fully engages our associates in the business, thereby giving U.S. Cellular® a competitive advantage for continued growth. It enables us to be a best-in-class employer of choice, trusted business partner and cherished neighbor that attracts, engages and retains the best talent from around the world, as well as provide superior results for our customers and our organization.
Our mission is to passionately bring different people and perspectives together to collaborate, innovate and grow the business. We know that winning requires the efforts of our entire team, and that we must collaboratively foster a culture of inclusion where our differences are respected, valued and used to create innovative, high-performing teams. To support our diverse workforce, we have six corporate affinity network groups. Learn more about them below:
