Charles Bendotti, Senior Vice President, People & Culture at Philip Morris International Inc. (PMI) (NYSE:PM), has today been recognized for his unwavering support for LGBTQ+ inclusion in the workplace, included on INvolve and Yahoo Finance’s OUTstanding 50 Ally Executives List 2020\. The designation places Bendotti among a select group of business leaders and allies of LGBTQ+ inclusion recognized for driving cultural change within the workplace to create more inclusive environments across the world. Nikki Symmons, Content Planner, Global Communications at PMI, has also been named on the OUTstanding LGBT+ Future Leader List 2020 in recognition of her achievements in furthering LGBTQ+ inclusion both within PMI and beyond.
Altria Group (NYSE: MO), one of the oldest companies in America, also pays out one of the largest dividends. Shares of the tobacco maker yield 8.3% at Monday's prices, which should entice investors looking for stocks that pay out a steady stream of income. While many stocks with yields close to 10% can end up being a trap for income-seeking investors, I don't think that will be the case with Altria Group.
