Celebrating Pride Month

Altice USA is proud to celebrate LGBTQ+ equality.

This year, Pride is even more significant as 2019 marks the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall riots, an important catalyst for change for the LGBTQ+ community.

Altice USA believe that diversity and inclusion is a strength and our recent recognition by the Human Rights Campaign as one of the best companies for LGBTQ equality and inclusivity acknowledges our commitment to creating a company where our people and customers regardless of gender, sexuality, background, and ideology can feel proud to be associated with.
