At Comcast, we know that a diverse, equitable and inclusive company is a more innovative and successful one, and we embrace diversity of background, perspective, culture and experience throughout every aspect of our business. For instance, as of year-end 2019, 35% of our employees were women. Among these women, many are leaders, including the Northeast Division’s Tracy Pitcher, who recently shared her professional experiences and advice on the podcast of Fairygodboss, a career community for women.
Tracy has spent her wide-ranging career at communications companies, joining Comcast in 2009. Currently, as the Division Senior Vice President of Business Services, Tracy leads a diverse team that supports small, medium and enterprise businesses across the footprint, helping them stay agile and achieve their potential with Comcast Business products. Prior to this role, she was the first female regional senior vice president of Comcast’s Greater Boston Region, which is one of the company’s largest regions as measured by customers and employees. Among other accomplishments during her tenure, Tracy was one of the first regional leaders to have a vice president of Diversity & Inclusion on her team, which helped usher in a local expansion of Employee Resource Groups (ERGs) like the Women’s Network.
Tracy has won many accolades including multi-year inclusion in CableFax’s “Most Powerful Women in Cable,” multiple best places to work in Massachusetts awards under her regional leadership and recognition as one of six Boston Business Journal “Women Who Mean Business” in 2019. Alongside her professional focus, she is a member of the Commonwealth Institute, a non-profit organization devoted to advancing women in leadership roles and is also a board member of the Massachusetts Business Roundtable, a public policy organization focused on strengthening the state’s economic vitality. She has served on the Board of Directors for the Boys & Girls Club of Manchester (NH) and is a mentor to numerous professionals.
In Tracy’s interview with Fairygodboss, she discussed her professional journey, the impact of gender in the workplace and in her career, working and leading from home in the new normal, work/life balance, and much more.
