For more than 100 years, Verizon has been at the center of the communications revolution. Verizon is one of the largest communication technology companies in the world.
We help people, businesses and things communicate better. The digital world promises consumers a better, more connected life, and we’re the ones delivering it. We make it possible for people to stay in touch and businesses to connect with their customers.
We’re also bringing technology and hands-on learning opportunities directly to kids who need it most. Our goal is to inspire tomorrow’s creators to use technology to build brighter futures for themselves, their families and the world.
Verizon does a good job of making it look like they care about diversity but to them White women are all the diversity they need when it comes to leadership positions. They put prerequisites in job postings that they don't hold White candidates to like "Must Relocate" or MBA preferred. I lost out to 3 people who never moved and to another who only had an Associates degree. When they told me why I didn't get the job it was said that "It just wasn't your time". I figured that the person had more years of service or better results....unfortunately that isn't the case. They create a culture where POCs see each other as competition because they typically don't hire many POCs at the same time within the same group for leadership positions.
