Charter Communications agreed Friday to fill its board with minorities and appoint a chief diversity officer after it finalizes a $55 billion merger with Time Warner Cable.
A crowd of executives and civic leaders turned out at the Sheraton New York Times Square for the signing of a memorandum of understanding spelling out the diversity initiatives.
“This is a precedent setting agreement that will have to be duplicated,” the Rev. Al Sharpton said.
