AT&T

Associate Director, Global Talent Attraction & Diversity

I lead AT&T's diversity, disability and veteran recruiting strategy across AT&T. Our strategy is multi-faceted and includes advertising, employment branding, partnerships, event sponsorships, and stakeholdering within AT&T's Citizenship & Sustainability, External Affairs and Employee Resource Groups.

We've been recognized for considerable progress in branding AT&T as an employer of choice within the veteran community. We launched an enhanced military careers page (www.att.jobs/military), a military skills translator tool (www.att.jobs/MOC) and a Veterans Talent Network and Job Search Advisor Program (http://careers4vets.att.jobs.) The number of new hires that self-identify as veterans has grown exponentially; in addition to increasing our veteran hires, our new hires are comfortable disclosing their status as they know their service is an asset to AT&T, not a detractor.

I advise AT&T's Women's Leadership Council on strategies to attract and retain female talent especially within STEM career areas. This year we launched a career site for military spouses, established a women's career speakers bureau and embarked on research to analyze supply and demand trends and collect best practices from leading technology employers as we set goals for gender diversity. I led the launch of the first AT&T Women in Tech hackathon and look forward to follow up events across the country this year and next.

I lead AT&T's talent attraction strategy and programs for professional, technical and college recruiting. We develop media and marketing plans and design strategies in support of hard to fill positions across sales, marketing, IT, engineering and various corporate roles.

In 2011, my team developed career portals and ATS for AT&T's hiring needs in Latin America, Asia and EMEA. My team provides our global recruiters with sourcing assistance, recruiting collateral, event planning, advertising, social media and marketing strategies to support their recruiting activities.
