Diversity, Equity & Inclusion

We’re all about Diversity, Equity & Inclusion.

We believe that a diverse workforce improves organizational effectiveness and business performance by encouraging a broad spectrum of thoughts and ideas. At TDS, we actively support the attraction, development, and retention of a diverse range of employees.

As an Equal Employment Opportunity (EEO) employer, TDS considers applicants for positions without regard to race, citizenship status, color, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, national origin, religion, age, disability, pregnancy, military status, genetic information or any other basis prohibited by law.

You can also search for career opportunities at our subsidiary companies.

Please see below for a few of the ways that we promote DE&I within the TDS family of companies. More information is also available on our Culture page.





Annual Inclusion Summit

The 2022 Inclusion Summit was a virtual three-day event featuring UScellular leaders, associates, and guest speakers from across the country who shared what Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion looks like in 2022. This year’s theme, Crossing Bridges, featured sessions on habits of inclusion, body diversity, diversity in STEM, overcoming othering, the importance of self-awareness, immigrant and refugee experiences, and more.


Our all-inclusive Associate Resource Groups (ARGs) at U.S. Cellular and TDS Telecom are volunteer, company supported, and associate-driven groups, drawn together by common characteristics, purpose, and a commitment to being a resource for our associates and the organization. ARGs create diverse and inclusive experiences that align with our vision and values, increase associate engagement and empower our associates to bring their best selves to work.
