T-Mobile: Making Good Connection with Diversity

T-Mobile, one of America's national providers of  wireless voice, messaging and data services, used to be ranked behind AT&T, Verizon, and Sprint, as the smallest of the “big four” American carriers. However, with new leaders at its helm in 2013, the company has since rebranded itself as America's Un-carrier with great results. To be America's Un-carrier is the company's strategic positioning to set the company apart from its competitors while giving their customers a fair advantage. See here:

This philosophy, coupled with the company's commitment to diversity and inclusion, are what makes the company today one of the top performing firms and “best place to work” in the country. It enables them to “break down barriers and rewrite the rules.”  T-Mobile's CEO John Legere says: “T-Mobile's diversity fuels better ideas – the very ideas that are driving our Un-carrier revolution forward.”

T-Mobile believes an inclusive company is a great company; thus it makes sure it hires and retains the best, diverse talents. Helping the company break down barriers, create more understanding, and ensure a safe and welcoming environment for everyone are its Employee Networks:
Access for Disabilities Network; Military Honor & Support Community; Multicultural Network; Multigenerational Network; Pride & Allies Network, and the Women's Leadership Network.

A close look at their diversity profile will show that T-Mobile “walks the talk” so to speak. “Diversity and Inclusion aren't just words. They're a way of life.” In terms of ethnicity, 61% of the company's population are minority and 39% White. In terms of gender, 57 % are male and 43% are female.

The diversity of the company's employees helps a lot in dealing with one another and with their diverse customers as well, in making good connection. In such a work environment where each one is welcome, appreciated and recognized for their unique contributions, ideas grow, individual careers flourish and the company progresses.

Truly, T-Mobile deserves to be named “Top Employer” and “Best Place to Work.” It is a place where diversity working at every phase of the business is daily observed.

2 Hallmarks of Martin Luther King, Jr.'s Impact on Diversity

Martin Luther King, Jr.'s message of justice and peace lives to this day, and for that, he is much a “man for all seasons” as is the great Sir Thomas More, King Henry VIII's legal counsel, who was beheaded for defying the king due to his moral conscience. King's activism has tremendous significance as well for the promotion of diversity and inclusion.

Martin Luther King's Dream: The American Dream
48 years since Martin Luther King, Jr's life was extinguished, the nation continues to ponder on the legacy of the man who once said “I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character;” the man who  “tried to love and serve humanity and leave a committed life behind.”

Martin Luther King, Jr.'s dream echoed the very same American Dream the nation's forefathers fought hard for, and declared for all Americans.

The American Dream. One famous line in the 1776 Declaration of Independence written by Thomas Jefferson, expresses what each citizen dreams for him/herself and their families: “all men are created equal; that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights; that among these are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.”

Those ideals – equality and freedom from oppression - were the very same ideals Martin Luther King, Jr. fought hard for African Americans in his time. Even before that, the evils of racism and discrimination pushed Black American people to the margins of society, and Dr. King's courageous leadership, peaceful means of protest and stirring speeches and writings inspired, helped end the segregation between whites and black people, gain equal opportunities in jobs and education as well as voting rights for African Americans at a great cost to his life.

Those very same ideals of equality and freedom from oppression – are the same ideals Americans today value as well.

Relevance of Martin Luther King, Jr.
Yet, today, the same evils still exist in American society, despite the passing of the laws granting more civil rights for African American people. Martin Luther King, Jr. remains, therefore, as relevant as ever.

Today's context and challenging issues are different from those of that turbulent, divisive period in American history, life may have become better for many African Americans, yet racial discrimination still plagues, even with a Black president at the helm of the nation.

Hatred due to one's color of skin continues to victimize not only African Americans, but also other racial and ethnic minorities that now comprise the ever-diversifying American society.

Hatred also exists for those deemed 'different,' 'apart,' 'foreign,' 'others.' Hatred is often at the root of violence and killings, oftentimes, planned and orchestrated, happening with increasing incidence.

Thus, herein lies the real significance of honoring and remembering Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., not only for African Americans, but for all Americans regardless of race, ethnicity, color, creed, gender, sexual identity/orientation, for military vets and disabled people as well.

These are the two hallmarks of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.'s lasting impact, particularly on the promotion of diversity and inclusion.

A Moral Voice from the Past
“There comes a time when one must take a position that is neither safe, nor politic, nor popular, but he must take it because conscience tells him it is right.”  - Martin Luther King, Jr. - A Testament of Hope: The Essential Writings and Speeches

Martin Luther King, Jr. is a strong moral voice from the past from whom the nation can learn much to chart its present and future courses of action, on the way to a more just, unified, peaceful nation, amid its growing diversity. A moral exemplar, he lived by what he preached, a worthy trait to emulate.

Dr. King helped shaped the America it is today. Remembering him and his works toward the attainment of basic human rights for Black Americans in his time, present-day Americans can draw parallels between the past and current events, inform and help them to better address present issues, influence how they shape their future and define themselves.

His contributions to the Civil Rights Movement, in the struggle for fairness, freedom and justice for the poor and oppressed, serve as timely lessons for today's American society because the pressing issues now, apart from racial hatred and discrimination, echo similar struggles in King's time.

Lack of equal opportunities for women and minorities, unemployment, poverty, guns and violence, and challenges to the promotion of diversity and inclusion – these are problems Martin Luther King, Jr. would strongly feel about and fight against.

His writings and speeches, his dedicated life for the betterment of  Black Americans and other marginalized people, are a fount of inspiration for American policymakers, organizations, communities and individuals working diligently to eradicate the vestiges of injustice, oppression, poverty and other social ills.

A Beacon of Peace and Hope
“Darkness cannot drive out darkness: only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate: only love can do that.” - Martin Luther King, Jr. - A Testament of Hope: The Essential Writings and Speeches

Thus, through his words, the character of the man is known. And that is another hallmark of Martin Luther King, Jr.'s continuing relevance to American people.

His enormous efforts towards the attainment of liberty, justice, equality and peace became worthy of the 1964 Nobel Peace Prize and being named Man of the Year by Time Magazine two years in a row,  in 1963 and 1964. King also received recognition and awards even after his death.

Call to Action
From Martin Luther King, Jr. come the following quotes:
“Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter.” “In the end, we will remember not the words of our enemies, but the silence of our friends.”

His is a life that challenges today's and future generations to live out the ideals and principles he stood and died for. Yet it is important for Americans today to know, understand their history.

When people feel far removed from history, they risk committing the same pitfalls as the past generations did. In addition, people tend to become indifferent to the plight of others that do not affect them directly.

This should be a rallying point then for this generation and onwards, to pass on good values such as brotherhood/sisterhood, unity, fairness. Teaching the young about the evils of racism, and racial hatred and discrimination will go a long way in the establishment of fair, just, humane society.

A meaningful way of honoring the man who fought hard to attain liberty from oppression and gain human rights for his people, more than merely organizing and participating in special events during the special day designated for him, is to:
- become agents of change;
- become the voice for the oppressed and marginalized;
- exert efforts in overcoming stereotyping, racial prejudices and biases – for these negative attitudes will only lead to division and strife, as gleaned from a careful study of the past.

In an increasingly diversified America, this challenge becomes all the more imperative. When Martin Luther King, Jr.'s dream that no one “ be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character” becomes a fully lived reality, with diversity working in every sector of society and inclusion is embraced as a way of life by all, then his death will not have been in vain.

Lack of Diversity in Oscar Nominations In Spotlight Again, Ignites Calls for Boycott


The current uproar vibrating in the film industry echoes last year's furor: the list of Oscars nominees for this year, as it was last year, is lacking in diversity. This lack of diversity in the 2016 Oscar Awards nominations has also ignited calls for a boycott of the awards ceremony next month, by black entertatiners.

An infograph shared by Entertainment Weekly shows the diversity makeup of the 2016 Oscars nominees: 95.3% White; 2.3% Asian and Hispanic/Latino. African Americans are not represented.

This controversy comes at the heel of the recent Martin Luther King, Jr. Day, a national holiday in honor of America's foremost Civil Rights activist and hero, who fought for racial equality through his non-violent resistance movement in the 1950's to until his life was cut short by an assassin's bullet.

Significant Voices of Discontent
Spike Lee, Hollywood black director, producer, actor and writer, criticized the Oscars nominations for being too white two years in a row, and called for affirmative action to address the problem of racial diversity in Hollywood. He was earlier reported as planning to boycott the awards ceremony, but later reports quoted him as saying he never used the word “boycott.” Lee sent his message to the Academy via his Instagram account where he wrote he would not be attending the Oscar Awards cerremony, for neither he nor his wife “cannot support the lily white” awards show.

Nevertheless, his criticism over the non-inclusion of colored actors in this year's nominations, just as it was last year, was shared by other Hollywood celebrities as well.

Stars who have lent their voices against the lack of diversity in the Oscars nominations are high-profile celebrities, including actress Jada Pinkett Smith, who said through her video message on Facebook she would not be attending nor watching the ceremony. She made the announcement on Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Day. Jada's actor husband Will Smith who had been expected to win a nomination for his role in the film “Concussion” did not get any.

Actor George Clooney likewise joined in the discussion and said there was more diversity 10 years ago with many more African Americans nominated and “I don't think it's a problem of who you're picking as much as it is how many options are available to minorities in film, particularly in quality films."

Lupita Nyong'o, who made history as the 2013 Academy Award Best Supporting Actress, said she was “disappointed by the lack of inclusion in this year's Academy Awards nominations. […] I stand with my peers who are calling for change in expanding the stories that are told and recognition of the people
who tell them."

Producer of Straight Outta Compton, Will Parker, weighed in through his Facebook post, saying the lack of diversity was “embarrasing.” The Rev. Al Sharpton wanted Americans to “tune out” the Awards next month.

Academy Response
Cheryl Boone Isaacs, the Academy's first African American, and third woman president, said she too was “heartbroken and frustrated' at the nominations' lack of diversity this year and pledged to work on the Academy's diversity issue. While expressing sadness over the lack of inclusion of people of color among the nominees, Isaacs acknowledged the “extraordinary achievements” of those nominated.

Isaacs vowed they in the Academy will “conduct a review of our membership recruitment in order to bring about much-needed diversity in our 2016 class and beyond.” In her lengthy statement in response to the nominations controversy, Isaacs compared the period in the 60's and 70's when “it was about recruiting younger members to stay vital and relevant. In 2016, the mandate is inclusion in all of its facets: gender, race, ethnicity and sexual orientation.”

Diversity in the Academy Membership
The profile of Academy members is deemed mostly white and male, although under the leadership of Boone Isaacs, efforts to increase diversity have been noted, such as inviting for membership a greater number of people who could help in the diversity initiative of the Academy. Invitations were given in 2015 to women, foreign-born artists and people of various races, ethnic backgrounds and ages, according to the Variety. This is most important in diversifying the Academy's membership, as most Academy members have voting rights for the Awards.

Based on a profile study made of Academy members in 2012, 94% of the voting body was White, 77% of the voters were male, and only a dismal 2% made up the Black members. As many observe, it is the membership make-up of the Academy, and to a greater extent, the make-up of Hollywood itself that influences the Oscar Award nominations' diversity, or lack of it.

Credit should be given to Boone Isaacs for her diversity push, but others are still yearning for more tangible results. The Academy, and so with the entire Hollywood, its diversity should reflect the nation.

Hollywood Beset with Lack of Diversity
Job opportunities for women, minorities in front of and behind the scenes, have long been identified as dismal. In a recent study by the Center for the Study of Women in Television and Film, only little progress was noted regarding the gender make-up of Hollywood directors, writers, producers, editors and cinematographers, with an increase that only matched that in 2001. Women did not have as much challenge in 2015 being producers as struggling to be directors and cinematographers, the study found too. In general, only 19% of women held top jobs behind-the-scenes in 2015.

Another study, the 2015 Hollywood Diversity Report, by the Ralph J. Bunche Center for African American Studies at UCLA, which analyzed the bottomline in the American film industry covering the period 2012-13, shows minorities still underrrepresented in many Hollywood jobs despite having posted some gains. They posted small to modest gains according to this study.

As the country's population continues to become more diverse, minorities – who comprised 40% of the population in 2013 – are expeced to become the majority. From lead roles to film directors, writers and other behind-the-scenes- jobs, minorities were outnumbered.

One significant finding of the study is film and TV shows that reflect the nation's ethnic and racial diversity were more likely to become successful at the box-office. It concludes by saying there is a “disconnect” between the still prevalent marginalization of women and minorities in Hollywood and what the growing diverse American audiences want – to see more diverse content; as it says: “diversity sells.” Yet, part of the problem could be in the conflict of interests between individual stakeholders, mostly white and male, and institutional interests. It is not a simple problem to fix, but one solution, among many, seen by the researchers is for guilds to “increase access and professional development for minorities and women.”

The Challenge: More Action, Less Talk
With today's diversity issue plaguing the industry due to racial underrepresentation, the Academy is called upon to install more action. Some suggest a change in the membership system of the Academy, or in the balloting system; the call for a boycott is a divisive issue as well as not every black entertainer agree with it, and some have remained silent about the matter.

The bottomline: efforts for diversity and inclusion should continue to be in the limelight. Films have strong influence on culture; films are not only for entertainment, but are also excellent tools or resource for teaching values, such as diversity and inclusion.

Top 5 Diversity Stories of 2015


As the New Year starts to roll in, we look back to the year that was. Here are the top diversity stories that grabbed national headlines and generated conversations in 2015.

Starbucks Diversity Campaign
