I, Tom Reid, personally commit to the following:

Personal Commitment

  • I will commit personal time and credibility to promoting the careers of young women and diverse lawyers by providing unique and interesting opportunities for their professional development and growth. 
  • I will know and actively monitor the representation figures within my legal department and ensure that diversity, equity, and inclusion (DE&I) is an integral part of my law department’s recruiting, career development, promotion, advancement, and succession planning. 
  • I will identify, openly endorse, and support outside counsel firms with diverse partners and associates dedicated to our matters.

Organizational Commitment

  • My law department will work in coordination with Comcast’s $100 million pledge to social justice initiatives by offering legal support to underrepresented communities, diverse small businesses, digital equity, and other programs fighting to end racial injustice and inequity.
  • The General Counsels of Comcast’s operating businesses (Xfinity, NBCUniversal, and Sky) will be united in support and implementation of DE&I initiatives.
  • Our outside law firms will be required to support DE&I initiatives by:
    • Providing information about their demographics, Comcast team demographics, leadership structure, promotion and advancement, pay equity and diversity programs;
    • Attending in-person meetings with me and our business unit General Counsels on a regular cadence to discuss the firm’s specific efforts to provide meaningful opportunities for diverse attorneys to lead and participate on our matters.


  • I will measure success by the individual impacts we are able to make to the career advancement of specific diverse attorneys whom we have identified, tracked, and invested in their progress.
  • Success will also be achieved by having strong diverse representation on internal and external teams, and ongoing and sustained support of DE&I initiatives.

Make a move,
join the movement.
