Comcast and Discovery Education Highlight Opportunity to Overcome the Digital Divide

Comcast NBCUniversal ranked No. 13 on the Fair360 Top 50 Companies for Diversity list in 2023.


According to a Comcast and Discovery Education study, U.S. schools are positioned to help students overcome the digital divide.

The study was made possible by Project UP, Comcast’s initiative to advance digital equity.
