Meet Hannah: Comcast Maintenance Technician
Comcast NBCUniversal celebrates the LGBTQ+ community all year long, and Pride Month provides a special opportunity to recognize the community’s remarkable contributions to our company, culture, and country throughout the month of June.
Hannah Danger is a maintenance technician in Denver, Colorado, addressing customer impacting needs and proactively taking care of the Comcast network. She is passionate about people bringing their authentic selves to the workplace and finding technical solutions to problems.
When Hannah Danger started her journey navigating her gender transition, she found herself apprehensive about doing it alone. “It caused some anxiety to be transitioning in a very blue-collar part of the company,” said Hannah. “There weren’t a lot of resources, everything felt more of a reactive approach.”
Having started with Comcast in 2015 as a residential technician, Hannah briefly felt herself at a crossroads. “There was a period where I thought maybe it would be easier to just start over somewhere else,” she said. “I didn’t know where to go, and I didn’t have structured resources outside of pronouns.” Thanks to the encouragement of leaders and colleagues around her, Hannah felt safe and supported continuing her career journey and empowered to contribute to the Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) conversation at the company.
As Hannah transitioned, she realized there wasn’t a formal plan in place for people like her, so she helped spearhead the creation of a companywide toolkit, developing step-by-step guides for leaders on how to provide support for allies on what to say and how to say it, and clearly stated policies and guidance for the employee. “It all flows so much better, eliminating a lot of anxiety,” she said. “It has actually shifted the need for a support group because we’ve put so many systemic changes in place, which is great to see.
In 2021, Hannah continued her impact work by joining the Women’s Network Employee Resource Group (ERG) Board, leading conversations on Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion. “When I first started at Comcast, I felt like ERGs focused more on networking and development,” noted Hannah. “We’ve seen a shift to include overall belonging, encouraging more casual connections and educational opportunities.”
Open to all employees, Comcast's ERGs are voluntary, employee-led organizations dedicated to developing the careers of our employees. Our nine ERGs are powered by nearly 35,000 members across 225 chapters, engaging people at all levels of the organization, and empowering employees to drive business results while supporting an inclusive, collaborative company culture.
Hannah is also currently serving on the West Division Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Council, which works to raise DEI within the company. “We focus on four pillars in achieving that; education and awareness, community, people and culture, and customers,” she said.
“We all grow together. Thinking about the culture of the future and what the next generation of the workforce is going to look like is important,” said Hannah. “Comcast has made big systemic changes and true commitment to being more inclusive and tackling career advancement.
Outside of work, Hannah spends time with her two huskies, is an avid gardener, and enjoys going to museums. She is also in school obtaining her associate degree with plans of pursuing law.
