Women play a big role at AT&T. With a workforce of 33% and a management team of 36%, women make a big impact in technology here. Nearly 15,000 AT&T women work in STEM roles, and over 1,100 have earned patents. As a named inventor or co-inventor, AT&T women filed more than 5,000 patents. We’re also fortunate to work with a lot of “Women Who Inspire” who are making a difference in their communities and the world at large.
This is why we make sure women at AT&T feel supported in everything they do. From having a strong network of mentors to making sure we ask the tough questions about unconscious bias and gender stereotyping, we aim to provide a true culture of inclusion where every voice matters. One of the ways we do that is through our immense network of Employee Groups (EGs).

A few of WOA’s Key Projects for 2020 included:
- Professional Development Webinars with over 10,000 participants focused on interviewing, “storicating” their resume and LinkedIn, leading in adversity and technology innovation.
- Women Empowerment advocates pushing to improve pay-gap inequities through education, mentoring and driving awareness.
- BELIEVE engagement initiatives across more than 30 communities, encouraging our employees / members to give back to the communities that we live and work in, with focus on economic development, education and assisting the underserved.
- Continuing our efforts to drive “From Tolerance to Understanding” by collaborating with our Employee Group peers on various projects.
- Addressing key impacts to our society – we took our WOA ROCKS project from a way of giving hope and encouragement to also speaking up and having difficult conversations about Suicide Awareness and Prevention.
