Our Mission

The Council dedicates its time and effort to assist the CBS Corporation to meet its goals in
Diversity and Inclusion in both the letter and the spirit of those goals. In so doing, it supports
and strengthens efforts company wide to:

  • Build representation of diverse groups throughout our workforce at every level
  • Identify the best practices from across divisions that help build the careers of diverse employees and work to communicate the benefit of those practices to implement them companywide
  • Continue the process of identifying diverse suppliers to build their ongoing role in the provision of goods and services to the company
  • Strengthen the dialogue across the corporation around the topics of Diversity and Inclusion – building bridges between divisions, corporate groups and employee groups devoted to this important topic
  • Provide outreach to the communities we serve through employee engagement, partnerships, mentoring and informational forums
  • Enhance and build robust communications vehicles centering on diversity efforts, outreach and initiatives


Diversity is a business imperative. It is only when you create an environment where inclusive voices are at the table and involved in the decision making process that you reach the most effective and innovative business solutions, and that must be an intentional process.
