Women are far and away the larg- est percentage of our customer base and are the primary decision maker on mat- ters of health and wellness in the home. In addition, Walgreens continues to focus on the causes that matter the most to women, from providing child- hood vaccinations across the globe to raising awareness on the importance of preventive health. That focus is also reflected internally in our annual Global Executive Women's Conference, and our continued focus on developing women leaders across our company and in our communities. Cynthia Marshall AT&T Senior Vice President, Human Resources, and Chief Diversity Officer D iversity and inclusion are core to AT&T's culture, as diverse per- spectives foster big ideas, fresh points of view, and bold leadership. We strive to create an environment free of bias—conscious and unconscious—so everyone's voice is included. One of our priorities is making our company a great place to work for women. Our female employees know they can thrive at AT&T with phenom- enal role models and mentors at all lev- els—women are leading major business operations and functions and serving on our board of directors and in the C- suite. And, through groups like Women of AT&T, Women of Finance, Women of Technology, Mujeres en Acción, AT&T Asia Pacific Women's Organization, and AT&T Women of Europe, Africa, and the Middle East, our female leaders set the example for continuous learning and giv- ing back to the community.
