AT&T Statement on Work to Strengthen Infrastructure Talent Pipeline

Statement from John Stankey, AT&T Chief Executive Officer

“Connecting all Americans to robust broadband networks requires good policy to address affordability, adoption and access.  Building these networks to close the digital divide depends on developing a highly skilled workforce through a diverse range of training efforts. That’s why we’ve joined with Corning to create programs to prepare entry-level high-tech workers, and we also are working with the Communications Workers of America to explore on-the-job training with apprenticeship programs for new and current employees. We believe every American should be connected to the internet, which requires effective public-private partnerships that stimulate investment in underserved communities, voluntarily tackles affordability issues and builds a more skilled workforce in our local communities. We appreciate the Biden Administration’s ongoing commitments to further these goals.”
