Our Commitment to Diversity, Equity & Inclusion
At Astound Broadband, our pledge to our customers goes beyond being fanatical about delivering astounding service. We are passionate about embracing and celebrating diverse backgrounds, cultures, and ideas to drive meaningful change from the inside out. While our focus has been on making internal changes, our commitment to diversity, equity and inclusion extends to the communities we serve.
Astound stands against systemic racism, sexism, homophobia, transphobia, ageism, ableism, xenophobia, religious bias, and all discriminatory practices that create and maintain inequality across our nation.
From volunteerism to providing affordable, reliable Internet to underrepresented families through the Internet First program and the Affordable Connectivity Program; to expanding our work with women and minority-owned businesses; to investing in hyper-local partnerships that drive economic growth, it’s about genuinely doing our part to make a difference in the communities we live, work and play.

Supporting and engaging our teams is paramount to delivering astounding service. That’s why we are committed to helping every teammate feel seen, heard, safe, and supported.
Diversity, equity, and inclusion inspire innovation and productivity. We recognize that many communities have been historically excluded and commit to being a better advocate today. Astound Broadband is passionate about creating an inclusive workplace that empowers our teams to be themselves—to think, create, and thrive. Our goal is to be better listeners to ensure representation, accessibility, pay equity, and empowerment for all. Investing in continuous feedback and listening helps us identify and respond to the unique needs of our diverse workforce, customers, and communities.
