“I am proud of the diversity and inclusion momentum we’re building at our company. There will always be more work to be done but we are making tremendous progress towards our goal of fostering a culture and environment of diversity, inclusion, and respect – where everyone can show up fully as themselves and do their best work every day.”

Our Commitment to Being Diverse and Inclusive

At Intelsat, we’re committed to helping all employees thrive. We champion diversity and are dedicated to building an inclusive culture where all employees are respected and valued for the unique characteristics they bring to the workplace.

D&I Council

The Intelsat D&I Council aims to create a sense of belonging and enhance the quality of the workplace experience for all employees. Composed of volunteer employees, the Council works to identify and address gaps in hiring processes and spearhead D&I training, activities, and events to encourage dialogue and increase awareness and education among all Intelsat staff. The Council offers advice and recommendations to the Intelsat Management Committee and works directly with the Human Resources, Legal and Corporate Communications teams to establish and implement best practices that foster a more inclusive and diverse culture.


Employee Resource Groups

With funding and resource support from Intelsat’s leadership team, we have launched several Employee Resource Groups (ERGs) with more planned for the future. The mission of our growing ERG program is to build a more inclusive and collaborative workplace by helping increase and maintain employee diversity through career, cultural, social, and networking opportunities.
