Honoring our heroes, investing in our future

Posted by Paul Weirtz

This month, we take a moment to reflect on the sacrifices that our veterans and first responders have made in service to us. In support of Military Appreciation Month, we’re unveiling multiple initiatives aimed at recognizing active military personnel, veterans and their families. For the sixth year in a row, we’re supporting Carry the Load through a large-scale employee volunteer effort, as well as a $100,000 donation.

We’re also using this month to double down on investing in our future, and not just in the world of tech. In addition to trailblazing 5G security standards for the future of our communications, we’re also working with the non-profit Year Up for the future of our young people and the workforce they will shape. As part of this initiative, we’ve committed to host 200 interns annually by 2022 in an effort to build a dynamic and diverse talent pipeline.

To prepare for the future, we’re always focusing on investing in our local communities. In doing so, we strive to always honor and empower those who serve others.

Sincerely,

Paul Weirtz, President — AT&T Minnesota
