These networks have goals and objectives that align with TWC's goals and strategies (such as giving back to communities and looking for opportunities for business growth and development). They also provide professional and personal developmental opportunities for employees and increase employee engagement.
Check out our latest video that highlights how members of our various Employee Networks came together and showcased several of our values including: Innovation, Teamwork, Inclusion, and Initiative. This was all done while creating miniature-sized robots in a learning and bonding environment.

They each collaborate closely with HR Business Partners who help them ensure issues are addressed appropriately and seamlessly.
