Brian Roberts, CEO of Bravo’s parent company Comcast, announced on Monday (June 8) that the company is pledging $100 million to a "comprehensive, multiyear plan to fight injustice and inequality."
Roberts noted that this includes injustice and inequality against any race, ethnicity, gender identity, sexual orientation or ability. "There will be $75 million in cash and $25 million in media that will be distributed over the next three years, in addition to the existing commitments our company currently makes to thousands of organizations supporting underrepresented communities through our Comcast NBCUniversal Foundation and social impact programs," he wrote.
Roberts along with NBCUniversal’s Chief Diversity Officer Craig Robinson, will work with leaders across Comcast, NBCUniversal, and Sky “to build programs, allocate resources, and partner with national and local organizations to drive meaningful change.”
Roberts said in the internal memo that the company will partner with the National Urban League, the Equal Justice Initiative, the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People, the NAACP Legal Defense Fund, the National Action Network, and the Community Justice Action Fund.
Roberts noted in the memo: "Together we are facing a painful yet powerful moment – one that presents us with a renewed opportunity to do better, and to create substantive and sustainable change."'
