30+ Years of Pioneering Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion
At OutSmart Media Company, our commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) has been unwavering for the past 30 years. Since our inception, we’ve prioritized creating an inclusive culture where everyone is respected, valued, and heard. Our dedication to DEI is not merely about demographics; it’s about fostering an environment where every voice matters.
Our mission is to champion DEI in every facet of our work, from the stories we publish to the people we employ. As we celebrate 30 years of leadership in DEI, we are proud to continue amplifying underrepresented voices and providing a platform for diverse perspectives.
Diversity in Employment
We believe that our workforce should reflect the rich tapestry of our community. To that end, we’ve focused on recruiting and retaining a diverse staff of contributors representing our communities. By creating an equitable and inclusive workplace, we aim to empower all employees to bring their whole selves to work and contribute to the ongoing success of OutSmart Media Company.
Diversity in News Coverage and Stories
We’re committed to publishing balanced, fair news coverage reflecting our community’s diverse perspectives and experiences. By including voices that have been historically marginalized or underrepresented, we are dedicated to being more inclusive in our storytelling.
Our Ongoing Journey
We acknowledge that promoting DEI is an ongoing journey, and we’re dedicated to continuous growth and learning. As we strive to enhance DEI in every aspect of our organization, we invite you to join us in creating a more inclusive and equitable media landscape.
