NBCUniversal Office of Diversity & Inclusion Names Sal Mendoza, Vice-President, Diversity & Inclusion

NBCUniversal announced that Sal Mendoza has been named Vice President of

Diversity & Inclusion, reporting to Craig Robinson, Executive Vice

President, Chief Diversity Officer. In this new position, Mendoza will

be responsible for the development of long-term strategies in the areas

of workforce, community investment and management of the NBCUniversal

employee resource groups, with a focus on enhancing the company’s

diverse and inclusive environment.

Mendoza comes to NBCUniversal from Hyatt Hotels & Resorts, where he most

recently served as VP, Global Diversity and Inclusion. In his fifteen

years at Hyatt, he worked to integrate the company’s diversity &

inclusion strategies across recruitment, staffing, employee and labor

relations, learning & development, procurement, employee network groups

and communications. In addition, he was responsible for building and

maintaining partnerships with national and international diverse

organizations on behalf of Hyatt’s global workforce of more than 80,000

employees. “Sal’s impact on Hyatt’s culture is reflected in their many

diversity and inclusion awards throughout his tenure”, said Robinson.

“We have one of the best teams in the business and Sal’s addition will

help us in achieving our goal to be the industry leader and employer of

choice in the media and entertainment industries.”

“At 14, I came to this country from Honduras”, said Mendoza. “Not

speaking the language and having to adapt to a new culture and

environment was an incredibly formative experience that sparked my

passion for diversity and inclusion. My career is grounded with

experiences that began in my college years, working with the LULAC

National Educational Service Centers, mentoring high school students in

the Hispanic community to help them obtain a college education,

recruiting and working with several multicultural programs at two

universities, and, most recently, with Hyatt. As I begin this next

chapter, I am thrilled to be joining NBCUniversal, a company that has

long been a pioneer in creating content and platforms that give voice to

an array of diverse perspectives.”

Mendoza received a B.S. from Chicago State University and M.S. from

Governors State University. Among his many accolades, he has been

recognized as one of Hispanic Business Magazine’s 100 Most Influential

Hispanics, the Black Meetings & Tourism APEX Award for Distinguished

Service, the Disability Champion Award and Chicago State University’s

Latino Alumni Award. He will be relocating to New York with his wife

Nina and their children Daniel and Vivian.
